Fernanda Vallejos returned to the charge of Alberto Fernández: the time when she called him “squat” and “mequetrefe”
The former national deputy Fernanda Vallejos Returned at load from Alberto Fernandez a week after the president reached a preliminary agreement with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) for the $45,000 million debt. The economist, now a reference for the Soberanxs party, estimated this Saturday that the head of state “has already had his turn”. From there, many remembered the scandalous audio from WhatsApp where Vallejos herself is heard Branding to Fernandez from “squat” Yes “freuquet”among other qualities.
The recent declarations of the former deputy intervened within the framework of an interview granted to Radio Mitre. First, she analyzed the bases of Argentina’s pre-agreement with the IMF for the debt contracted by the government of Mauricio Macri. In this regard, she maintained: “A debt of these characteristics cannot be recognized or negotiated, which is tainted with illegality from its constitution until its execution, because each of the dollars which have been disbursed have fled, pure and simple.
In this sense, Vallejos warned: “The IMF did not fulfill any of its obligations, it acted with absolute irresponsibility with Argentina and it was a huge scam against the Argentine people, public property and the coffers of the Central Bank”. And then he added: “It is not a debt contracted under conventional conditions, but absolutely irregular.”
Finally, when asked about the 2023 presidential elections, the Soberanxs referent felt that Alberto Fernández should not stand again because “he already had his turn”. And about the possible candidacies of Cristina and Máximo Kirchner and Axel Kicillof, she said: “Obviously one of the three is in my preference.” However, she stressed the importance of having interns. “Thinking about 2023 is difficult for me. Let’s hope that we Argentines can choose it and there can be interns, which we haven’t had for a long time,” she said.
“Sick, entrenched, squatting and whipping”
Last September 16, an audio of Vallejos, then national deputy of the Frente de Todos with a mandate to fulfill, was leaked, in which he called the president “sick, entrenched, squatter and whipper” who is “on loan” in the Casa Rosada and surrounded by “useless people.” It all happened after the ruling party’s first electoral defeat in the legislative primaries.
“We were all hoping that Alberto Fernández’s patient, Alberto Fernández’s squat, Monday at 8 a.m. would hold a press conference at an office, with all the resignations on the table, saying Argentina, not that there were messages from the ballot box as he hypocritically said on Sunday, because obviously you can see that in addition to being blind he is deaf, because he has never heard anything and that he didn’t learn anything from Nestor or anyone else, he didn’t. But he did not do it. Not only did he not do it, he does not want to do it, ”we hear the Kirchnerist leader launch in a WhatsApp audio.
The name of the person to whom the message was addressed was not disclosed, but it is suggested that it is a leader with whom he usually exchanges political analysis. This is how the recording continues: “He wants to keep his core of useless people, who are all there on loan, occupy the offices of the Casa Rosada and have done nothing. There is no political leadership in Cabinet because the Chief of Staff (Santiago Cafiero) is a clown”.
Similarly, the then MP complained that “economic policy should have been subordinated to health policy and not to reducing the budget deficit and respecting the mandate of the IMF”. In this sense, she recalled her questions to the leader of PRO, Mauricio Macri, and said: “How sad to have to say the same thing to a guy we have as president.”
In the post, which has gone viral amid the crisis facing the government after PASO 2021’s defeat, Vallejos reiterated his criticism of Alberto Fernández: “He is entrenched in Casa Rosada. It’s a squat. “This government needs to be revived. It was, it has failed so far. They have managed the pandemic, now we have to turn the page and start a new government,” he continued.
On the other hand, he pointed out, “It’s too late to cry over spilled milk. He cannot continue to be infatuated, even less it seems to me, because he is fine, he hung up the bench and grabbed the cane, but it is clear that he is a tenant”. To conclude, he said: “The owner of the votes, the owner of the legitimacy, the owner of the popular support, the owner of the support base of this government and the one who sat it there is Cristina.”
The Liberation of Vallejos
Given the spread of the message, Vallejos took to his social networks to explain the situation: “I discovered that a private conversation had been leaked where, in the context of the anguish that many of us have generated by Sunday’s result which reflected the suffering of our people and that we were not able to meet their aspirations, I had really inappropriate expressions, ”he justified.
