“Lula was not elected by the people. He was selected and elected by the STF [Supremo Tribunal Federal] and TSE [Tribunal Superior Eleitoral]”, can be read in the image of the post released by Folha de São Paulo and in several Twitter posts. In a video posted to Facebook, Felipe Jiménez, whom G1 identifies as the state attorney for Mato Grosso do Sul, criticized the security of electronic voting machines.

Bolsonaro just deleted the post below, saying that Lula’s election was illegitimate. Sounds like cowardice—and it is—but the damage has already been done. The message to the horde following him has been relayed. As long as he remains unpunished, this nightmare will never end. And that’s exactly what he wants. pic.twitter.com/NGBKUHkk4y

Jair Bolsonaro left the Advent Health Celebration Hospital in Florida on Tuesday, January 10, against the advice of a doctor. The specialists accompanying him advised him to stay in the hospital for another three or four days, given that he was still unable to eat.
Bolsonaro has already left a hospital in Florida against medical advice.
The former Brazilian president suffered from an intestinal obstruction that may have been the result of a stab wound he received in 2018 during the election campaign that brought him victory. He has since had to be hospitalized twice more for the same reason.
