All three Latin American coup leaders have covid-19
There are 33 nations in Latin America.
Thirty have various forms of democracy, some better some worse.
In those thirty nations none of the presidents have Covid-19.
Three nations in Latin America are run by coup leaders.
All three coup leaders have Covid-19.
What are the odds of that?
The latest to get Covid-19 is Bolivia's "interim president" Jeanine Añez.
Interim president is an interesting term for someone who was installed into office by the military. Añez is a racist, fundamentalist Christian from a minority party that barely got enough votes to get into parliament.
This comes just days after Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro tested positive for covid-19.
Bolsonaro came to office via a soft coup or judicial coup, depending what you call it.
First President Dilma Rousseff was impeached for trivial offense.
Then Brazil's chief prosecutor conspired with the Bolsonaro campaign to throw former president Lula into prison for a manufactured offense, when all the polls showed that Lula would easily win the election.
Finally there is Honduras President Juan Orlando Hernández.
Hernandez didn't come into the presidency via a coup, but he is there courtesy of the 2009 military coup. The regime elections since the coup have been laughably fraudulent and have no legitimacy with the populace.
Honduras has become the biggest narco state in the Western Hemisphere, but our government continues to support it.
