Brazilian politics has taken somewhat of a spooky turn this week when it came to light their president Michel Temer and his family have moved out of their official residence in the Brazilian capital city, Brasilia. The president is claiming bad vibes and even ghosts to be the cause of his decampment.

The supposed spooky residence named the  Palacio da Alvorada has been the official residence of Brasil’s presidents since it was built in the 1950’s and has everything an opulent head of state would want including a large glass fronted facade, banquet rooms, a music room, swimming pool, library, its own medical center and it even boasts its own football field.

So what then has driven Temer and his much younger ex-beauty queen wife (we are not judging Temer you old dog) from their luxurious abode? Well, the details are somewhat sketchy but it seems they have been plagued by bad feeling with the president saying by news source Veja “”I felt something strange there. I wasn’t able to sleep right from the first night. The energy wasn’t good, Marcela (his wife) felt the same thing. Only (their son) Michelzinho, who went running from one end to the other, liked it.”

Such was their discomfort that it has been reported that the family decided to bring in a priest to see if he would be able to drive out any unwanted spirits or entities, but unfortunately for one reason or another the priest was unsuccessful and the ill feelings remained, the final step being for Temer and his family to move a short distance away to a smaller but reportedly equally sumptuous home.

It will be interesting to see if these bad feeling follows them there or if they are confined to that particular house. Or maybe it isn’t ghostly goings on at all but just unchecked guilt for his life of luxury whilst so many of his people live in abject poverty……..
