Argentina Cristina Fernández's comb that did not match her red suit

A few days ago, the finger that BBC presenter Maryam Moshiri mistakenly showed at the camera when the midday news program began went viral. Moshiri explained that it was an "inside joke" with her coworkers and that she didn't realize she was on the air.

We do not know if the reasons of the former vice president of Argentina (and twice president and also first lady) Cristina Fernández have something to do with humor or rather with a bitter farewell after so many years in Argentine political life.

Dressed in bright red, Cristina Fernández had a surprise role in the inauguration of Javier Milei as president, which had begun before the ceremony began. With her back turned, she said goodbye with a 'comb'.

In the images captured by television cameras, Fernández clearly showed the middle finger of his right hand when arriving at the Congress headquarters, what is popularly known in Argentina as 'doing a fuck you' and in other countries, such as Spain. , like 'comb'.

Although the video does not clearly show who the obscene gesture was directed at, it is believed that Fernández did it after hearing some comment against him.

However, the gesture was surprising on a day in which Argentina not only celebrates a transfer of presidential command, but also the special date of 40 years of uninterrupted democracy, commemorating the day Raúl Alfonsín came to power (1983-1989). after the last military dictatorship (1976-1983).

Cristina Fernández is a very controversial figure on the political scene of the South American country. Linked to political power for almost three decades, the former president played the roles of legislator, first lady, president of the country, vice president and president of the Senate.

The new president, Javier Milei, has spoken out against Cristina Fernández, her now deceased husband, former president Néstor Kirchner (2003-2007), and her political heritage, the so-called Kirchnerism, a wing of Peronism with strong power in recent decades.

Cristina Fernández, who this Sunday lost all the legal privileges she enjoyed as vice president, still has several pending cases for corruption.

On December 6, 2022, Fernández was sentenced to six years in prison and perpetual disqualification from holding public office for her involvement in a case of fraud against the State. However, the former president's conviction is not yet final, since she appealed.

Cristina Fernández said goodbye to the staff of the Senate, which she has presided over the last four years, warning that she will be "close" at the Instituto Patria, the ideas laboratory Institute for Thought, Action and Work for American Inclusion, which she founded in 2016.
