After taking the fascist Jair Bolsonaro to power, trampling and putting out of commission, the most famous allies of the president abandon massively a governance that burns in their hands and try to isolate him politically, even more so when at least two of them hope to take his position in the next elections, such is the crisis situation at hand.

The truth is that Bolsonaro, following the style of his idol Trump, headed for the streets with many of his supporters to overturn the decisions of Congress and governors of various ideologies of the nation to put into practice the isolation measures recommended by WHO to face the dangerous coronavirus pandemic, in its variant COVID-19, which has already infested more than 50,000 Brazilians and killed several thousand.

As for the governorates, Bolsonaro’s opposition was led by his now former ally Joao Doria, from Sao Paulo, a seasoned man in politics, with presidential pretensions and enough economic power to achieve it in the not-at-all-honest Brazilian electoral network.

It all started with the dismissal of Health Minister Luis Henrique Mandetta, who questioned the international measures to fight the pandemic, followed by the dismissal of other ministers, showing that the president lacks unanimous domestic support.

The one minister of Economy, Paulo Guedes, said that he preferred to stay at home "as a citizen." Then followed by Justice, Sergio Moro, who, I highlight, the media exploit his figure and help increase his popularity.

Moro defended social isolation from his position of Justice, to later resign, and accuse Bolsonaro of interference to prevent the investigation on corrupt relatives.

Also, it was remarkable the presence of figures who have eliminated political rivals at the residence of the president, who can now be summoned to court accused of being tied to several crimes.

There isn’t much to say about Moro, the man was trained two years by U.S. intelligence within the United States, so that from his position as Prosecutor, lock up Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva without real evidence, in order to prevent him from running for presidency, therefore paving the path for Bolsonaro. In addition, he lavishly supported actions that facilitated the deposition of President Dilma Rousseff.

As for Bolsonaro, Folha de Sao Paulo, a newspaper that had been his ally, mocked the president for having cried before the audience at the Planalto Palace who were not part of his inner circle.

In short, President Jair Bolsonaro politically isolated has shown signs of emotional fragility in managing the coronavirus crisis and has sought refuge in the military sector, which he has always given privilege, to try to regain control of the Executive, which has alerted previous and new rivals.
