Opposition… Forget impeachment, forget Covid’s CPI, bury this story,” said the commentator.

Milena asked Navarro what was the message from the streets with the protests. That’s when the commentator temporized and said they were the biggest since Dilma Rousseff’s offside request in 2015. “For me, they’re the biggest protests since Dilma’s resignation, I have no doubts,” he said.

“People are on the street, they think differently than the mainstream media. I think it is more than clear, there are people on the street throughout Brazil. This is very clear. President Bolsonaro needs to take care of the economy, this is a fact. During the pandemic, the Brazilian economy had a great period of resilience. But now we need to take care of the economy,” he commented.
