For the moment, Bolsonaro has been absent from the event organized by the Jovem Pan radio station, the main radio station in Brazil, which he planned to attend this Monday. His team would have also decided to limit their interviews to podcasts with a large audience and little confrontation, reports the newspaper ‘O Globo’.

The profanities launched against Magalhães represented his worst moment in a debate that began as expected, accusing Lula of leading corrupt and kleptocratic governments.
