"There are 3,700,000 homeless people who do not eat": hard crosses from the opposition to Alberto Fernández for his controversial phrase about the lines in restaurants


The President had stated that people now complain about "having to wait two hours" to eat outside. They replied with poverty rates and a comparison with Puerto Madero, where he lived.

President Alberto Fernández got into a new controversy this Friday, when he stated that people now

"complain because you have to wait two hours"

to eat outside, in relation to the rebound in the hotel and gastronomic industry.

The phrase did not go down well and on social networks they came out to criticize the president.

Also from the opposition they got on the controversy and marked the field, reminding him of the difficult economic situation and

the hardships in which those who do not even make ends meet live.

One of the most emphatic was

the radical Mario Negri.

Through his Twitter account, the deputy shot Fernández.

"According to INDEC

there are 3,700,000 homeless, Argentines who do not wait two hours but rather DO NOT EAT.

They laugh in people's faces or have no idea what is happening in the country. Do not fool us," launched the president of the radical bloc in the lower house.

Who also expressed herself in this line was the deputy Graciela Ocaña.

"President, we advise you to take an appointment for a check-up or broaden your friendships.

It seems that you are not listening or the claims of the people are not reaching you:

due to inflation, money is not enough, insecurity, PAMI does not work, misery of retirements and pensions Don't tease us," he said.

Criticism came from right and left.

The Buenos Aires legislator for the Partido Obrero (PO), Gabriel Solano, also charged against the president.


Poor Alberto, he thinks that Argentina is Puerto Madero

where he lives", he launched.

A little more subtle, Deputy Martín Tetaz shared a graph from a Twitter user, where he compares the level of seasonality in restaurants and hotels.

There he affirms that the recovery is not such.


The president's preferred indicator," wrote the economist.

On social networks, users shared Alberto's phrase with

images of rows in picnic areas. 

The controversy over recovery

The President said it while praising policies such as the ATP that the State established during the pandemic, and confirmed that "if I had to face that again, I would do it again."

"When I see that the hotel or gastronomic industry

is full, when I hear that the complaint is that you have to wait two hours, I am welcome

," said Fernández during an act in Concepción del Uruguay.

In addition, Fernández charged again this Friday against the City of Buenos Aires by assuring that

he feels bad when he sees it "so opulent"

compared to other districts in the country.

"I love Buenos Aires, but when I see it so opulent and I go to a place where they celebrate that the State gives

someone a bath, I feel very bad

," he said.

The President had already vindicated the issue of toilets during his time in Chaco, where he left another dissonant phrase, then, around how the covid vaccination campaign was.

Now he added: "I feel that the country where we live is not fair and what I want is to do justice,

to be able to cover the rights that people need."

In the act that served to announce infrastructure works, the President was accompanied by the governor of Entre Ríos Gustavo Bordet, whom he praised for his management on more than one occasion,

despite the fact that he was one of the provincial leaders who did not accompany his

trial project

politician to the Supreme Court.
