Brazil’s version of trump: why is it «wake-up call» for the world?

<p style="text-align:justify">Racist, homophobe, misogynist and pro-torturer. Because of his profane outbursts and verbal abuse, he has earned such image and was considered as a political clown. Once he insulted lawmaker that she was too ugly to be worthy of raping. He said that he’d rather have a dead son than a gay one. Therefore, analysts concluded that Brazil has elected the most extremist president among democratic countries. So why does Brazil decide to make «really radical shift»? How does such «extreme» and «unpleasant» figure become a president? </p>
