Although still the most quoted to assume the Ministry of Health, the name of Ludhmila Hajjar lost strength on Sunday night. According to the newspaper The Globe, an audio attributed to her would have been discovered by Jair Bolsonaro and left the president disappointed with the doctor. 

In the recording, the cardiologist would have called Bolsonaro a "psychopath" and defended the election of the governor of Goiás, Ronaldo Caiado, to the presidency of the Republic. At the time, Caiado, who was classified by her as brave, criticized the president's statements. 

“I don't even know what's going to happen with this Brazil. Will catch fire. I just know that I want the Caiado president, that's all. Because he was brave ”, says the supposed audio. "He arrives. This JB has to fall. He's a psychopath, ”adds the woman.
