The opposition took advantage of the internet crash that caused the networks to fall WhatsApp, Instagram and Facebook this Monday (4) to mock the government of Jair Bolsonaro (no party) and question whether the president of the republic would fall as well. Some mentioned Economy Minister Paulo Guedes because of the Pandora Papers scandal.

Federal deputy Marcelo Freixo (PSB) recalled the fact that the Whatsapp be a fake news channel (fake news) by the “Cabinet of Hate” and mentioned councilor Carlos Bolsonaro, pointed out by investigations as one of the main articulators of the proliferation of false information.
“The Bolsonaro misrule cannot last so long without the Whatsapp. Imagine how Carluxo must be now”, commented Freixo on Twitter, social network that did not suffer the crash and started to be used by more people after the global crash.
Soon after, Bolsonaro’s son summoned his followers to enter the messaging app telegram.
Federal Deputy Jandira Feghali (PCdoB) posted a meme about the fall of the Whatsapp and about “what had to fall”, with a photo of Bolsonaro. The parliamentarian also cited the scandal involving the Minister of Economy. “You know what impacts your life more than a day without Whatsapp it’s the Instagram? Paulo Guedes and his companies in a tax haven”.

Guilherme Boulos, from Psol de São Paulo, stated that with the Whatsapp off the air, “Carluxo and Jair Bolsonaro [ficaram] without working hours,” in direct irony to the president’s schedule, which is often empty for many hours of the day, and to the fact that government officials frequently use social media to spread false news.
Senator Humberto Costa (PT-PE) took advantage of the fact that became the most talked about subject in the world this afternoon to praise former president Lula. “What fell: Facebook, WhatsApp, Instagram. What will never fall: Lula’s strength to change Brazil and work for the people. But what we wanted to fall hasn’t fallen yet… #OutsideBolsonaro”.
