Florencio Randazzo went out to campaign with an unusual video. The former Interior Minister released a piece that fictionalizes the moment in which he had to step down from the 2015 presidential race, using the voice of an impersonator of Cristina Fernández de Kirchner. In the supposed dialogue, the fake CFK spends her time insulting a calm Randazzo, surely played by the original, in an incredible reconstruction of that moment. Speaking to AM750, the deputy candidate tried to minimize the video, calling it a “parody.” “It’s a spot that tells a true story,” he said without taking on the ridicule of the imitation. “I always had a good relationship with Cristina,” he assured.
The spot “recreates” a supposed meeting between CFK and his minister in Olivos, in June 2015, in which the president allegedly let him know that she would support the presidential aspiration of Daniel Scioli and that she proposed that he lead the competition for the governorship of Buenos Aires. In the video, Randazzo has a counterpoint with the voice that imitates Cristina, which does not spare insults and shows signs of bad character and contempt, in a clear ridicule in line with the image that opposition media construct, sometimes disguised as humor.
The candidate for deputy spoke on AM 750 yesterday afternoon. “It is a commercial that tells a true story, at that moment I was offered to be a candidate for governor,” he argued. “I had made the commitment to go to the STEP with Scioli,” he stressed, and defined the dialogue of the spot as “a parody” that, curiously, included insults. He stressed that “I always had a good relationship” with the current vice president and that, as the ad for her campaign says, “here what matters is the value of the word”, something that “politics has lost.”
In the radio dialogue, he also surprised by proposing an urgent labor reform, which would replace the severance payments with “unemployment insurance”; the impulse of the deduction of finances and the reduction of withholdings. He also dealt with holding teachers accountable for problems in education.
Strong repudiation in social networks
