WITH a resounding 55% of the vote share in Sunday’s elections in Brazil and a platform built on talk of a civil war against communists and outlandishly vile statements, Jair Bolsonaro has been on the receiving end of some severe criticism.

There has been widespread concern expressed by many Irish people about just what this means, with Sarah from Cabra chief among the number of citizens shocked to their core after giving him a quick Google and left with no option but to tweet at length about how terrible this result is.

In a bid to see how Bolsonaro’s elevation to the highest office in Brazil will affect Sarah, WWN Politics dived head first into the pressing issues and the Cabra native’s now 300 strong online posts about him:

1) Legislation to Repeal the 8th Amendment is still progressing through the Dáil, should Sarah email her local TDs urging the necessary amendments to the Bill or should she tweet “you fascist prick” to Bolsonaro’s Twitter account? These are dangerous times so a tweet could be the match that lights the fire and ensures Bolsonaro doesn’t dilute abortion laws in Ireland.

2) With her apartment block in NAMA and newly sold to a US based vulture fund that doesn’t pay tax in Ireland, Bolsonaro could further alter Irish tax legislation to line the pockets of these companies. The bastard. The recent tax cut for landlords was likely his brainchild and not Sarah’s local TD, minister for finance, Paschal Donohoe.

3) Sarah’s Brazilian co-worker voted for Bolsonaro, this disgusting turn of events will mean Sarah will have to quickly look up something about Brazilian history on Wikipedia before telling her co-worker how wrong they are. This will rob Sarah of 20 minutes of her day.

4) Sarah’s old school is likely to close due safety concerns around building work carried out in recent years, it would be foolish to lobby the government and join civil society groups aimed at getting clear, straight answers over the tendering process. Especially when it was Bolsonaro all along.

5) Bolsonaro is in charge of the world’s 7th largest economy with vast oil reserves, and has indicated he has little time for climate change action, which makes the Irish government’s recent decision to drill offshore for gas and oil a real finger in the eye for Sarah. How could Bolsonaro do that?

6) News that the mass grave in Tuam will be exhumed and the remains of all children identified was warmly welcomed. However upon closer inspection, it was Bolsonaro and not the Irish government that made the decision not to carry out inquests and find the causes of death and not to treat the grave site like the crime scene it is.

The decision to seek €2.4 million towards the cost of exhumation and burial from the Bon Secours order without revealing the logic and rationale behind reaching that exact figure is likely to have been Bolsonaro’s decision too. No wonder Sarah is so vocal about her distaste for the man.

This is the moment Invictus Games competitor Paul Guest was comforted by his tennis playing partner Edwin Vermetten, after a helicopter flying over triggered his PTSD. 💕 〰️ "[We were] just singing a song from #Frozen — Let It Go. We were singing it together just taking my mind off it talking rubbish in my ears and that's what it is all about," Guest said. 〰️ 📷 Getty Images: Invictus Games 2018 〰️ #InvictusGames #IG2018 #InvictusGames2018 #GameOnDownUnder #PTSD

Vermetten noticed that Guest was visibly upset and immediately abandoned play so he could rush over and console him. They remained in an embrace as they spoke to each other. The raw moment left spectators and supporters in tears.

Guest regrouped to deliver the match-winning serve.

Speaking with reporters after the game, Vermetten revealed it was the theme song to Frozen that broke the tension from the helicopter noise.

"I took him by the face and said 'Look at me. We are a team so let it go'," said Vermetten. "Look into my eyes and sing the Frozen song, and we did. For him, this was the moment he let go, and he did, he literally let it all go."

EU To Officially Disband After Merkel Steps Down

EU To Officially Disband After Merkel Steps Down

THE EUROPEAN UNION will officially disband once Angela Merkel formally steps down as German Chancellor in 2021, WWN can exclusively reveal.

“It’s like Take That after Robbie left or when Zayn left One Direction, we can’t go on, we’ll just be a shit cover band really,” French PM Emmanuel Macron shared with WWN, clearly upset it was all coming to an end.

“Oh what’s the fucking point,” Merkel declared after her Christian Democrats party suffered embarrassing results in regional elections, with dissatisfaction in her leadership slowly rising amid the growing popularity of the far right.

Reacting to the unexpected news that Merkel will leave politics entirely in 2021, other pro-EU leaders have stated that the Union would disband on the very same date by also stating ‘what’s the fucking point’.

“You lot clearly want far right authoritarian leaders, who are we to stop you? Go on, go crazy, knock yourself out. Go ‘Nationalist’, go fascist, send your neighbour to a labour camp, your wife to a ‘reeducation camp’, submit budgets which will bankrupt your country, see if we bloody care,” confirmed a letter signed by senior EU figures, including Jean Claude Juncker, Donald Tusk, Antonio Tajani and Michel Barnier.

Leaving a leadership vacuum in world politics, Merkel in charge since 2005, was one of the few remaining moderate leaders operating at the forefront of international politics.

Similar to when Robbie Williams left Take That, a helpline will be set up to take calls from distraught politics fans who are upset at Merkel’s decision to call it a day.

Sergeants Christopher Russo and Kirby Tonkin pulled the unconscious animal to shore and performed chest compressions to revive it.

"He had less than a minute… he went under and as he came up you could see foam coming out of his nose. He was drowning," Sgt Russo said.

"I grabbed his tail and Kirby cradled his head and dragged him onto the beach and cleared his lungs to get the water out of him. Then we just started to push on his chest and he started breathing again and I could feel a heartbeat."

The kangaroo is now "in good spirits" and recovering at the local Animalia Wildlife Shelter.

Video of the rescue was filmed by a beachgoer and shared by Victoria Police on Facebook.

Dog Who Saved Owner From Rattlesnake Wins Dog of the Year

Dog Who Saved Owner From Rattlesnake Wins Dog of the Year

October 29, 2018

A golden retriever who saved a woman from a rattlesnake was crowned "Milk-Bone Dog of the Year" at the 8th Annual Streamy Awards in Beverly Hills, California.

At just 6 months old, Todd put himself between owner Paula Godwin and a gray-speckled, gray and white rattlesnake while on a walk near their home in Arizona.

Todd was bitten and spent 12 hours in an animal hospital before being released. Godwin posted the story of Todd’s heroic act on social media and it went viral. Milk-Bone took notice and sent Todd a care package of treats while he recovered.

Earlier this week, Milk-Bone named Todd their "Dog of the Year" at the 8th Annual Streamy Awards.

Milk-Bone says the award is designed to celebrate bravery, overcoming obstacles, strong personality and loyalty traits that make all dogs truly special.

"We created this honor because we believe that dogs deserve to be honored in the same way humans are honored," said Jonathan Rodgers, senior brand manager, Milk-Bone. "We are thrilled that fans voted for Todd to win the first ever Milk-Bone Dog of the Year Honor. Todd truly embodies the qualities associated with this honor and goes above and beyond by providing comfort and happiness to all of those around him."
