Javier Milei’s image consultant conceived of his unorthodox hairdo with Elvis Presley and Wolverine in mind. Argentina’s new president is clearly unforgettable for many reasons.
The former TV pundit and potty-mouthed contributor ‘the madman’ Milei has pledged to take (literally) a chainsaw to the machinery of state.
Friends and foes of Argentina’s next president compare him to his fellow right-wing populists Donald Trump and Jair Bolsonaro.
Milei trounced his Peronist rival in Argentina’s most important election in decades – El Loco (The Madman) Milei was the lead singer of a Rolling Stones cover band called Everest and, according to reports, also enjoys Bob Marley and classical opera as per Giuseppe Verdi.
Milei was apparently absorbing as an economic pundit on Argentinian TV where he would pontificate on the misery of inflation and the joy of tantric sex!
“Each man has his own dynamic. In my particular case, I ejaculate every three months,” Milei once boasted on air!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!’‘
While his propensity for foul-mouthed outbursts – made him a household name and helped him kickstart a career in politics around five years ago.
The libertarian economist was elected in 2021 for his party Libertad Avanza (Freedom Advances) party and was swept into the presidency by an tsunami of voter fury for Argentina’s worst economic crisis in two decades.
In his rambunctious speeches on the campaign trail, Milei vowed to abolish Argentina’s central bank as he brandished a chainsaw, symbolising cuts to “exterminate” rampant inflation.
Many experts believe Milei will struggle to implement his controversial proposals. Milei’s party controls just 38 of 257 seats in Argentina’s lower house and eight of 72 in the senate.
On Sunday night though, Milei showed little sign of diluting his vision for South America’s second largest economy.
“The changes this country needs are drastic,” he declared, announcing Trumpian plans to make Argentina great again.
