Welcome to another episode of the Cadena Nacional!
If you thought President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner was going to stay away from the public eye just because she sprained her ankle while jumping around her hotel room in Rome last week, you were wrong.
No, Cristina remains as active as ever. And yesterday she addressed the Argentine people to explain that the recent announcement – that the Government will begin cutting utility subsidies next week – is not so bad, even though it means that your gas and water utility bills are going up like a million percent (don’t worry, I’m exaggerating, it’s more like 200 percent).
And despite no being able to walk properly, she remained as hilarious as ever. Especially when she produced an alfajor Fantoche on camera and complained that it was just a regular, boring, double-layered alfajor and not a triple-layered one. “The owner of the Fantoche factory told me he was sending just a regular one because he didn’t want to see me get fat. I’m not sure whether that’s a compliment or he’s trying to tell me something else,” she told the entire country.
Because she can.
