Well, those are twenty minutes of our lives we won’t be getting back.

President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner once again used the Cadena Nacional today, this time from El Calafate, in Santa Cruz, to talk about a new hospital and to celebrate that she had already signed the formal accord to begin developing the Cepernic and Kirchner dams. Dams that, in theory, are supposed to be finished in five years, by February 15, 2020.

And if you hoped she would mention the Nisman accusation against her, she didn’t.

At the very end of her message, she went into a mini-rant and said that sometimes people ask her “how she manages to put up with everything she has to put up with,” to which she said she replied she learned to fight adversity “here, in Patagonia, with the cold, the snow and oblivion”.

“Housing, health, human being’s basic needs… those are the things that we politicians need to take care of, beyond ideas and (political) orientation and positions,” she said. “It’s important to find answers to each one of those problems that our society and people have… that’s what they demand from us… public health, housing, education, culture and the possibility of recreation”.

The end.

See? Told you. A total meh.
