History

2018 Presidential Election

On July 22nd, 2018, the Social Liberal Party nominated Bolsonaro as their candidate for the 2018 presidential election in Brazil. On October 7th, Bolsonaro finished with 46% of the popular vote in the first round of the election. That evening, John Oliver discussed the election during an episode of Last Week Tonight (shown below).

The following day, YouTuber Paul Joseph Watson uploaded an interview with Brazilian political analyst Filipe Martins titled "The Truth About Brazil & Bolsonaro" (shown below, right).



Knife Attack

On September 6th, 2018, Bolsonaro was stabbed during a campaign stop in Juiz de Fora, Minas Gerais. The attacker was arrested and identified as Adelio Bispo de Oliveria, who had been a member of the Socialism and Liberty Party from 2007 to 2014. Bolsonaro was released from the hospital on September 29th.

"Johnny Bravo" Gaffe

On August 6, 2019, Bolsonaro was complaining about the recent criticism, and then compared himself to the cartoon character, Johnny Bravo.[1][2] This quickly led to a lot of jokes online dressing him up as the character

“Let's stop this story, this nonsense. The campaign is over for the press. I won! The press has to understand that I, Johnny Bravo, Jair Bolsonaro won (sic), p…! Won, p…! Let's understand this. Let's work together for Brazil. Your work is excellent. As long as it is well done. It is very important for the future of Brazil. ”
