If Brazil Can Do It, Why Not Us? (Trump Edition) | The Mehdi Hasan Show

Brazil’s senate is recommending that the far-right President of Brazil, Jair Bolsonaro — aka, “The Trump of the Tropics” — be charged with crimes against humanity for his handling of the Covid-19 pandemic. So why can’t Democrats in the U.S. Senate or House manage doing the same? Legal analyst Glenn Kirschner weighs in on whether or not Trump could ever face the same fate.

    That's what AOC is saying. Brazil has free education, gun control, bloated
    govt jobs, worker's entitlements and UBI (bolsa familia). Yet, the favelas,
    poverty, lack of jobs, poor upward mobility have not changed…hmmm…

    What is this nonsense? Until these people actually suffer retribution for their actions this is just another version of a dog and pony show.
    Shut the fuck up and make sure they are held accountable by visiting legal consequences upon them.

  7. Ryan Kuniyoshi says:

    We should all know by now why trump would never be charged for crimes against humanity in the USA. Because he fake rich white bully. And he’s a legit thug. Prison ain’t gonna make him better. It’s only gonna make him worse.

    tRump is a pathetic, lying bottom feeder

  10. Do no harm says:

    First prosecuter who has the courage to save the country will be remembered for history.

  11. Do no harm says:

    Oh we have the shot he said there would eventually be but he and Desantis and the others have talked their followers out of using it so now they are dying.

  12. Do no harm says:

    Geez, what a sane approach to crazy criminals.

  13. Ray Mikota says:

    Thank you. !!! Can we make this go viral please

  14. Jim says:

    The dems in Congress have no backbone. The Department of Justice is afraid to even talk about republiQan crimes. How about a class action suit against trump for his crimes against Americans?
    Looks like Scotland will charge trump for crimes before the United States even admits he's a criminal.

  15. nathan brehm says:

    Start with the Georgia voter tampering. Then let the legal landslide bury him.

  16. Z says:

    To the rest of the world the US looks like the most corrupt country on the planet.

  17. Steven Grotte says:

    Just change the name from Bolsonaro to Trump & charge trump in the USA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  18. oldsesalt says:

    Like Trump, Bolsonaro has resting idiot face.

  19. Lawrence Anderson says:

    Justice matters…. but not in 'Merica. Smoke, mirrors, and bu11$#!+ rule.

  20. Mangold Kelz says:

    Bolsonaro is a Lebensraum thug

  21. samurisea says:

    Trump Virus 2020-2021
    There can be no justice for our dead loved ones until Trump and all his accomplices are behind bars especially his family and those supporters commiting crimes in his name!!!

  22. alotofgrey says:

    We use vaccines to produce "herd" immunity. There is no other way we can accomplish that. Letting a pandemic run amuck in a population does not produce "herd" immunity. Example: Small pox, polio, Flu, Covid, the list is endless.

    take this mad man down

  25. Gulf Marine says:

    This sh!+ must not be allowed to pass!

  26. Ingrid Grattidge says:

    Brazil and India great trump supporters as America, Brazil and India are the three highest countries in Covid-19 cases. Such narcissists frankly only care about themselves. Not their families. Businesses or countries.

  27. porn theater mop bucket says:

    Nah, Dr. Asshole Fascist is the one who should be brought up on charges of crimes against humanity along with the Chinese government for their criminal negligence.

  28. L Wells says:

    Trump did the same thing. He's committed so many crimes that his party was accomplices to and still are

  29. Chloe Maxwell says:

    Not just tRump, but all of the governors of red states that were responsible for people getting sick and dying as well!

  30. Top Hat 21 says:

    maybe prosecutors are afraid of the trump cult coming for them and their families? that does not mean a prosecution should not take place however

  31. Kent McKean says:

    Talk, talk, talk. Get off your asses and do something. Begin the process to force the AG to bring charges.

  32. Lorraine Clark says:

    Garland should be replaced with someone who has the guts to do what's right. Robert Mueller is a Republcan so his weakness in defending our democracy is no surprise. What's Garland's excuse? Weakness on his level is dangerous and cannot be allowed to continue.

  33. A C says:

    Why can't we? we have Garland, good for nothing.

  34. Gordon Adams says:

    Let's at least be honest with ourselves. Our legal/political system is at best, compromised. It needs a complete overhaul.

  35. luigi querusio says:

    It's all a nice fantasy

  36. luigi querusio says:

    Biden should replace Garland with Glenn asap.

  37. luigi querusio says:

    I'm sure Merrick Garland will take care of all this….
