Synopsis

Jair Bolsonaro was elected the President of Brazil in 2018. Prior to being elected, he received support from President Donald Trump and a former Great Wizard of the KKK, David Duke. Though he rejected endorsement, Bolsonaro's political views are directly related to white supremacy. JAIR is a reminder that while President Bolsonaro won the popular vote, some of us will never stand by his political and personal views.
