The pre-candidacies begin to be defined for the closing of lists on Saturday, June 24 and the crosses between the leaders begin. Now, the dialectical dispute was between Myriam Bregman, presidential candidate of the FIT, and Diana Mondino, pre-candidate for national deputy of Javier Milei in the City, who argued on Twitter until the exchange ended with a "go sing the anthem of the United States."
"I did not understand the concept of 'shame of others' until I turned on the radio and began to listen to a report to Diana Mondino on climate change and ESI," Bregman shot on social networks, with an open criticism of the economist chosen by the presidential candidate of La Libertad Avanza, Javier Milei, for deputy for the City.
Mondino, who already crossed Foreign Minister Santiago Cafiero by telling him "I take a bath and speak English," replied to Bregman with a fact that the leftist leader herself recognizes: "Few things can give me as much pride as receiving insults from someone who does not sing our anthem."
It is that in a debate to candidates for head of government in 2011, Bregman acknowledged that he does not sing the Argentine anthem. "Those of us who come from the leftist tradition do not sing the anthem and respect all the working people who do so and feel identified with its verses," he said at the time on A24.
But the crossing in networks continued. Bregmam picked up the gauntlet on the criticism for not singing the National Anthem and retorted: "You want to dollarize and liquidate the national currency, go sing the anthem of the United States."
But it wasn't Bregman's only criticism of Freedom Advances. Minutes later he also disqualified Buenos Aires legislator Ramiro Marra because in his networks he mentioned himself as a candidate for "mayor" of the City. The leftist leader replied to a tweet in which he is compared to "Mayor Diamond", a corrupt character from the series The Simpsons.
"I bathe and speak English", the unusual disqualification of a candidate of Javier Milei to Santiago Cafiero and the blunt response of the chancellor
The new candidate for deputy of La Libertad Avanza, the economist Diana Mondino, took aim at Foreign Minister Santiago Cafiero with an unusual disqualification. "I bathe and speak English," Mondino said wryly, when they recalled in an interview with LN+ the speech Cafiero had read during a summit last year.
"I've always said that one of the best ways to make decisions in economics is to look at the world. We need a Foreign Ministry that is not for cocktails but to concentrate on economic issues, "said the economist who now integrates the space led by Javier Milei.
Mondino's reference to her speaking English points directly to the questions Cafiero was asked when she read a speech in that language during ExpoDubai in March last year.
On that occasion, the official was at the center of the controversy after a video of the speech he gave in a little fluent English in front of authorities from other countries and investors went viral.
Mondino's harsh questions point to Argentina's international relations during Cafiero's administration. In that sense, he insisted with the criticism considering that the country is begging for help.

"We must not only help Argentina to export, but stop begging and beg for us as with Lula. We must stop pitying the world. Lula does not beg for us, but for Brazilian businessmen," he continued.
Cafiero had the opportunity to answer Mondino, but the foreign minister limited himself to saying that he does not know her or who she is.
"I don't know who Diana Mondino is," Alberto Fernández's former chief of staff said with some irony during a radio interview with FM La Patriada.
