The Brazilian president, Jair Bolsonaro, may be forced to undergo emergency surgery after he was rushed to hospital in the early hours of Wednesday complaining of abdominal pain.
Bolsonaro, 66, was reportedly admitted to a military hospital in the capital Brasília at about 4am, after being struck down by an unremitting bout of the hiccups which has lasted for more than 10 days.
Hiccups. Maybe God does have a sense of humor after all.
Also, this seems appropriate.
i actually hope bolsonaro survives at least a bit longer, I think he’s got more funny ailments in him. covid a ninth time, they find a lego piece lodged in his nasal passages, spider lays eggs in his foot, he starts pissing like nonstop and it smells of mustard. stuff like that
