In his monologue this Sunday, Jorge Lanata analyzed the two failures of Alberto Fernández on his tour of Europe: the failed meetings with Pope Francis and Joe Biden. “It seems that I could not find a worse ass face than the one that put him the last time, “said the host of Journalism for All Box about the high pontiff. And he assured that the President “choluleó” -without success- the US president.
The President is already in Glasgow. Gone is his time at the G-20 summit in Rome, including a lack. And buried were also his possibilities to specify the two most wanted quotes.
“An objective of Alberto in Italy was to meet with the Pope, but Bergoglio did not want to receive it“Lanata said, in the first installment of her show.
AND, jocular, ventured a possible reason for the papal slam. “It seems that he could not find a worse ass face than the one he put on him last time,” he commented on the meeting between Francisco and Alberto F.

Later, the journalist went on to the second frustrated date.
“Alberto went with a clear objective to the summit of the G-20. Settle with the IMF? No. Get one meeting with Biden “Lanata assured. A meeting that did not happen.
Instead, the driver continued, from the presidential team they promoted with drums and drummers a brief formal greeting between presidents.
The face of discomfort of Pope Francis with Alberto Fernández last May.
“In the Government they sold it as ‘the meeting with Biden’. But it lasted 40 seconds, and since Alberto does not speak English, half of the 40 seconds fwere from the translator“, he lamented, with irony. And he launched a proposal for future attempts to make the agendas coincide:” The meeting would have lasted longer if he was found in the bathroom urinals. “
And he concluded: “Alberto screwed him up. It was missing that he asked for a selfie and a greeting for Fabiola (Yáñez) “.

Lanata also took advantage of the count of the presidential tour to recall an outstanding fact about the function it fulfills these days Cristina Kirchner.
“I don’t want to worry you, but do you know who is the President? Ah, Did you see how suddenly you miss Alberto?“the journalist laughed.

In another segment of her monologue, Lanata put the magnifying glass on the expenses of the Ministry of Women, Gender and Diversity led by Elizabeth Gómez Alcorta.
He remarked that last July, the ministry disbursed 10 million pesos to buy 4 cars Nissan Versa zero kilometer. He mentioned a previous acquisition: a minibus for 20 people, in exchange for 7 million pesos.

The Ministry explained that the fleet of vehicles they received in December 2019, when the portfolio was created, “was not in optimal condition” and was “insufficient” to comply with the transfers that are part of the agency’s daily agenda. “And of the organism”, Lanata said, always sarcastic because of inclusive language.
The journalist stressed thatpenalties were executed 57% of the 11 billion pesos planned in the 2021 budget for the ministry. In addition, he assured that in the first nine months of 2021, 160 femicides.
And, returning to the disbursement in vehicles, he added: “There are projects, such as urgent aid actions for relatives of victims of femicide, that have less than 15 million pesos assigned, that is, less than what they spent to buy the 4 imported zero kilometer cars and the minibus. “
Finally, he recalled another striking tender: catering for official events, for 51 million pesos.
“Elizabeth,” Lanata spoke directly to Gómez Alcorta, “most of the activities this year were virtual. Who was going to eat the sandwiches and croissants? “
The journalist clarified that by transcending the tender for catering – and “in the face of the scandal”, the hiring It was suspended.
