‘The woman is truly ugly’: Second Brazilian official attacks French first lady’s looks

Published

A Brazilian government minister said French first lady Brigitte Macron was “truly ugly” Thursday, only days after the country’s president appeared to endorse an attack on her appearance.

Brazil’s economy minister Paulo Guedes said he agreed with President Jair Bolsonaro’s comments about Macron’s looks.

“The president said it — it’s true,” he said to applause during an economic forum. “The woman is truly ugly.”

Later, an aide said in a statement that Guedes “asks for forgiveness for the joke he made today during a public event… when he mentioned the French first lady.”

Bolsonaro garnered criticism last week when he appeared to agree with a Facebook post that implied French President Emmanuel Macron’s wife was not as attractive as his own wife Michele Bolsonaro.

He wrote “Do not humiliate the guy, ha ha” on a post that read “Now you understand why Macron is persecuting Bolsonaro” next to pictures of the two first ladies.

The French president called Bolsonaro’s behavior “extraordinarily rude” and the Brazilian president later deleted his comment.

Brazil and France have clashed in recent weeks over the handling of fires in the Amazon, the world’s largest rainforest, which is crucial for a stable global climate.

According to a report from CNN, long-shot Democratic presidential nominee Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) is getting an unexpected bump in the polls in early primary state New Hampshire by drawing out Gabbard-curious supporters of Donald Trump.

As CNN's Dan Merica reports, "Voters asking questions at Democratic presidential campaign events don't often profess their love for Donald Trump or privately weigh whether to support a Democrat or the President in 2020. But most Democratic events are not like Tulsi Gabbard's town halls."
