TRUMP OF THE TROPICS? Jon Lee Anderson struck the right note in his piece about Jair Bolsonaro, the new President of Brazil (“Southern Strategy,” April 1st). Like Donald Trump, Bolsonaro is a racist, misogynistic, homophobic liar. He is also an idiot. But it’s important not to push the Trump-Bolsonaro analogy too far. Although there are similarities in rhetoric and policy between the two men, the damage that Bolsonaro inflicts on Brazil will be more severe and longer-lasting than Trump’s assault on democratic norms in the U.S. Brazil has been a democracy for only three decades, and its political institutions are weak. Bolsonaro’s Presidency threatens to exacerbate these vulnerabilities, and to menace liberal democracy in Brazil and elsewhere in Latin America. Cesar RochaWoods Hole, Mass. As Anderson explains, the network of alleged personal connections…

goings on about town: this week

Pop and country music’s synergy lives on through Maren Morris. On “Girl,” her second album, the pliable singer-songwriter navigates womanhood in lush ballads and powerhouse anthems that paint her, in turns, as a down-home girl-with-guitar and an elegant dynamo diva. But she’s not here to just shut up and sing. In her music, the bliss of romance mingles with calls for equality and claims to independence, themes that bolster a grander artistic statement—that Morris, who performs at Terminal 5 on May 4, isn’t interested in being anyone but herself. ART “The Daguerreotypes of Girault de Prangey” Metropolitan Museum Some hundred and twenty daguerreotypes seem to float in this dramatic, beautifully designed exhibition. They represent just a fraction of the output of Joseph-Philibert Girault de Prangey, a nineteenth-century French architectural historian, whose archive of more…

tables for two: teranga

In the days after my most recent meal at Teranga, the new café at the Africa Center, a cultural institution in East Harlem, I found myself conjuring the flavor of the Senegalese-born chef Pierre Thiam’s fufu as though it were a song I’d learned and had been humming to myself ever since. Fufu, a staple in many West African countries, is a slightly spongy, slightly stretchy doughlike substance made from one or more starchy vegetables or fruits, such as cassava, plantains, or yams, which are boiled, pounded, and rolled into balls for tearing into pieces and dipping into sauces and stews. The versions I’d had at other pan-West African restaurants in New York were mild, if texturally fit for their supporting role of sopping up. Thiam’s, made with plantains and…

comment: twenty for 2020

The Democratic Presidential field became, last week, a game of twenty questions, the latest being: Joe Biden? The former Vice-President finally joined the race on Thursday, with a three-and-a-half-minute video that was much less about him than about Donald Trump’s apologia for white supremacists in Charlottesville. Perhaps Biden figured that voters already know his story. That’s not a luxury shared by the nineteen other candidates, who range alphabetically from Senator Cory Booker, of New Jersey, to Andrew Yang, a tech entrepreneur—or, by first names, from Senator Amy Klobuchar, of Minnesota, to Mayor Wayne Messam, of Miramar, Florida—and, by age, from Mayor Pete Buttigieg, of South Bend, Indiana, who is thirty-seven, to Senator Bernie Sanders, of Vermont, who is forty years older. The shorthand questions (John Hickenlooper? Eric Swalwell?) are already giving…

dept. of hot air: bagged

There’s an old saying: “A true gentleman is a man who can play the bagpipes, but doesn’t.” In March, when Donald Trump called in to “Hannity” to tout Jeff Sessions’s replacement, he crowed, “Our new Attorney General, Bill Barr, is a great gentleman.” But new information has come to light. This magazine has located five individuals who attest that Barr, who has come under fire for his SparkNotes summary of the Mueller report, plays the bagpipes. And, no, it wasn’t just a onetime thing, in college, where he mistook a set of bagpipes for a bong. Throughout the eighties, Barr performed in the City of Washington Pipe Band—one of the top bagpipe ensembles in the world—giving new meaning to the cool-dad line “I used to be in a band.” “Bill was…
