Francisco Everaldo Oliveira Silva, aka Tiririca the clown, has provoked laughs and indignation since his electorial campaign for congressman started airing on TV. Folha newspaper of São Paulo has an interview (in PT) with him in which appears the following question and answer (in regards to the political party he has joined)…
Sabe o que o PR propõe, como se situa na política?
Cara, com sinceridade, ainda não me liguei nisso aí, não. O meu foco é nessa coisa da candidatura, e de correr atrás. E caso vindo a ser eleito, aí a gente vai ver.
Do you know what the PR (Republic Party) is about, how they are situated in the political arena?
Dude, in all honesty, I still haven’t concerned myself with that, no. My focus is on my candidacy, and going after it. And in the case that I’m elected, then we’ll have to see.
