Renzo Gracie defends Brazil's president Bolsonaro

Monday, September 02, 2019

Last week French President Emmanuel Macron called the wildfires blazing in the Amazon rainforest an "international crisis" that should be on the agenda at the G7 summit.

The angered Brazil's president Jair Bolsonaro, who argues that the G7 discussing the issue was "reminiscent of a colonial mindset, inappropriate in the 21st century."

Next Bolsonaro's Facebook page reacted to a meme unkindly comparing the Brazilian president's wife with that of the French first lady Brigitte Macron, saying "Don't humiliate the guy ... haha."

At the G7 summit, Macron responded.

"He had extremely disrespectful comments towards my wife," said the French president, as transcribed by CNN."What can I tell you? It's sad. It's sad for him and for Brazilians. I think that Brazilian women are probably ashamed to read that their president has done that. I think that Brazilians, a great people, are a bit ashamed of this behavior, As I have a lot of friendship and respect for the Brazilian people, I hope that they will quickly have a president who is up to the job."

Now MMA legend Renzo Gracie has responded to an unpaid position as Ambassador of International Tourism by Embratur, a branch of Brazil’s Ministry of Tourism, Gracie was not impressed, and posted a video on the social network.

"Macron ... I'm sorry, Micron, Micron. Mermão [slang from the slums for brother], you are talking bad about my country," said Gracie to Brazil's Esporte. The only fire that has is in the hearts of Brazilians and our president. Come here that you will take a choke on your neck, on that chicken neck. You don't fool me, hey."

"I was with some people from American Airlines, a guy was checking how many passengers were going to Brazil and noticed a massive decline, lots of people canceling their trips due to this false fire. All those clowns only open their mouths to speak ill of our country. Of course, a bunch of people will be scared, they’ll think I called him chicken because I was questioning his manhood, but I’ve seen plenty of gay men who are more manly than this idiot.”

“I’ll ask you a question. Is [Macron's wife] ugly or pretty? Would you hook up with her? If you’re going to talk trash about our country, you better be ready to listen to some trash back, and about your relatives, too. The fact that he sleeps with a dragon doesn’t make him a fire expert. She’s ugly, man.”

"I don't want a penny from the government, I'm taking it out of my pocket because I believe in Bolsonaro. Finally we have a president who speaks what has to be said. Better a man speaking the way he speaks than twenty intellectuals sitting there."
