“Hi. I borrowed my mom’s Facebook page,” begins an odd and surprising post that was made public on Monday on President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner’s Facebook page and signed by the elusive first daughter of Argentina, Florencia Kirchner.
You see, while Florencia is not very keen on talking to the press, she was “forced” to come out into the spotlight today after “some friends told her” that La Nación had published an article saying that Paul Singer and his Army of Vultures were going investigating the time she spent studying in the New York Film Academy back in 2010, when she was 19 years old.
Florencia was visibly annoyed by the story. In fact, she was so annoyed that if you read her post, it’s pretty obvious that she is channeling her mom’s style of corrosive sarcasm. So much so that it almost looks like it was written by Cristina herself.
The original piece, published by La Nación on Sunday, assured that Singer and his minions were trying to figure out if, while attending the New York Film Academy four years ago, Florencia stayed in a luxurious Park Avenue apartment that belonged to a JP Morgan executive.
Both the executive and the First Daughter have denied this before, but the vultures are relentless and decided to look into Florencia’s stay in the Big Apple anyway, probably because they are bored. You may be wondering what could be so controversial about Florencia’s brief stint in New York City. Well, besides the fact that she decided to study in the epicenter of soul-sucking capitalism and in a country that her family seems to detest, nothing.
But the vultures are interested in knowing how she paid for all that, anyway.
Florencia took to her mom’s Facebook page to lash out at pretty much everyone. Also, she’s a terrible writer.
In the Facebook post embedded above, the First Daughter explains that while she was in New York City in 2010, she stayed in a students’ residence and then moved to an apartment in Midtown.
“The truth is that even though I’m only 24 years old and it looks like my only sin is being the daughter of Néstor and Cristina Kirchner (something I’m very proud of), the truth is that I only lived four months in New York,” Florencia wrote, in a horribly written sentence that also makes no sense at all.
“It’s not that I enjoy talking about my personal life. But what can I do? I had no choice,” she says, only to add a sentence proving that she is indeed her mother’s daughter:
“And since we’re already discussing assets and belongings, I would also like to say I never had a Mini Cooper. And you know why? One simple reason: I don’t know how to drive. I know, I know. The headlines tomorrow will read: ‘See? Florencia Kirchner doesn’t know how to drive.'”
Ha! She’s got a bright future in politics.
