The controversy of the visits to President Alberto Fernández in the Quinta de Olivos in full harsh imprisonment due to the coronavirus pandemic is still something to talk about, and now former President Eduardo Duhalde has joined, who said that it was about six times there in 2020.
After being one of the controversial names that made up the VIP vaccination, the veteran Peronist politician now went out to bank the current president and said that the criticism “is exaggerating.”
“I’m not misjudging him at all. He’s exaggerating. It’s those stupid fights back and forth from the crack. They are minor issues. They all moved as best they could. It is not necessary to exaggerate with the serious problems that the country has “, sentenced.
In dialogue with Chiche Gelblung, on Radio Colonia, he recalled that when he governed Argentina he lived for a short time in the Presidential Palace, but left an unknown anecdote Until now.
“I lived in Lomas and came back. What happens is that at that moment you couldn’t go back because people were at the door of my house, angry with him let everyone go. When he could, he returned to Lomas “, started Duhalde.
In his opinion, in the Quinta de Olivos “you live like anywhere” and he again supported Fernández. “When you’re there you always have a job and quotes people“He said in an understanding tone.
But immediately Duhalde sank into a delusional anecdote. Literally.
“In my case, in March 2002 I started hallucinating therefore the Adventists from Entre Ríos came. I did stay there for a while because they gave me not only food but also massages. He hallucinated that he saw a river and fish jumping. That was the hallucination, “insisted and surprised the former president with the story.
“It sure was because of the stress. You cannot have one, ten or fifteen psychological impacts every day. and stay well. The human being is not prepared for that, “he explained about that moment.
Eduardo Duhalde and Alberto Fernández, meeting. According to the former president, there were several visits. Photo file.
Then he confirmed that during 2020 he visited Fernández at La Quinta “about five or six times”. And he left an even more surprising phrase: “I found it as I was when that happened (hallucinations) “.” They do not take care of themselves and there are no supermen, “he concluded.
“It is easy to govern”
According to his vision, the most serious thing that he sees of Argentina at this moment is “the inability of the leadership to understand the moment and take action accordingly. “
“Governing is easy for those who know. How to operate an appendix is easy for a doctor or surgeon, but you have to know. The most basic things are not known, “he shot, although without specifying who.
He said that it is his turn to teach these things every year at the Camilo Cela University in Madrid where he gives “the basics of governance.”
“There are three things: order, control and respect. Without order and control, not even a family works. Nobody works without that, “he explained.
“After 40 years of the murderous military coup that Argentina had, we can speak of order. But when I was president I had to explain: democratic order, without helmet or bayonet. You spoke of order and they said that ‘this one is with the military’. But it already happened, “he analyzed.
Then he said that “there is no order, less control and I respect nothing“.” Respect for the people, for neighboring countries … there is no respect for anything. This is not how you can live or organize a country“, he sentenced.

Duhalde said that this is recovered “with a government that understands first that the country’s problems more than debt are what is not produced“.
Finally, he confessed that in the last two elections did not vote. “You never win or lose by one vote. The truth is that I will not participate in anything“, concluded on the next elections.
