Brazil's awful year: does the buck stop with Bolsonaro?

Brazil has had an Awful Year. Does the Buck Stop with Bolsonaro? | GZERO World

Fernando Henrique Cardoso, Brazil's former president and elder statesman, spoke frankly with Ian Bremmer about how ill-equipped Brazil's government has been to manage multiple crises. "It's obvious that the government is not managing quite well...by denying truth. It's impossible to deny that the people are dying," Cardoso said in an interview on GZERO World. He also discussed the political division plaguing his country. "I'm more cautious than normal political men are. I have been president, so I know that it's not simple, but it's difficult to explain how it was possible for the president [Bolsonaro] to seem so indifferent with respect to the pandemic."
