Hoaxes and conspiracy theories have been plentiful since the pandemic began in March, with some online groups and websites claiming there is no virus or that 5G networks somehow cause the illness.

It never ceases to amaze us how people are happy to believe any nonsense they hear, especially online. Even though, as John Oliver pointed out, conspiracy theories have long been around and their appeal is undeniable.

Still, one would expect people would fall for elaborate theories, with plenty of evidence to back it up. Instead it’s always the most idiotic concepts possible.

Bolsonaro’s tribute to Covid victims

Bolsonaro’s tribute to Covid victims

The Jornal

Jun 25, 2020 / 1.52 min

Never has the expression “stranger than fiction” made more sense than when the president of the Brazilian Tourism Board went live on Facebook, with Brazil’s president Jair Bolsonaro, to play Ave Maria on the accordion in honor of Covid19’s victims.

Bolsonaro has been a covidiot since the very beginning of the pandemic, so at this point it’s hard to be surprised by anything he does or says.

So, we thought!

This time, Bolsonaro had his Tourism Board President show up to play the accordion (very poorly) and then leave without saying one word. It was one of the weirdest things we’ve ever seen.

I mean, it would be weird enough if it was just some random guy doing this on YouTube but this is the president of a country?!

How low can this guy go, is the only question at this point.

Coronavirus Lockdown Protest

Let me start by saying there were plenty of videos out there covering the Coronavirus lockdown protests. This one however, had the ability to stand out from the crowd.

From all the wonderfully shocking characters being interviewed, we had a hard time deciding which one were our favorite, though the “What we have here, statistically, is…political science” guy is pretty close to taking the cake.

There’s a silver lining however. We all at Broadcastr became fans of All Gas No Brakes’s channel and binge watched all their videos in the following hours.
