During a visit to a a New York pizzeria this week, Trump-loving Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro was forced to eat outside after he refused to show proof of being vaccinated against the COVID-19, The Daily Beast reports.
The embattled Brazilian leader, who was in New York this week for a United Nations General Assembly, has seen his poll numbers collapse due to his handling of the novel coronavirus pandemic and has not been vaccinated against the deadly virus that so far has killed nearly 600,000 Brazilians.
Despite this, Bolsonaro apparently believes that defying New York’s pandemic restrictions will help him with his base of voters, as tourism minister Gilson Machado proudly put a photo of a defiant Bolsonaro eating pizza outdoors on his social media accounts.
Additionally, reports Correio Braziliense, Bolsonaro apparently had to sneak into his hotel because it was surrounded by protesters who carried signs denouncing his presidency.
