This Thursday a poster of Podemos has appeared in Madrid in which Florentino Pérez, president of Real Madrid and the construction and services group ACS, together with the mayor of Madrid, José Luis Martínez-Almeida, appear, in which you can read: " Madrid deserves respect, not smacks". And below: "Vote for Roberto Sotomayor so that Florentino does not rule."
This slogan responds to the fact that in the act of celebrating the victory in the Euroleague of the Real Madrid basketball team, which took place in the City Hall itself, Pérez gave the councilor a smack for being a mattress maker, which left him a little out of place and tube to take it with humor. There were television cameras. And even the presence of three councilors from the City Council of the capital, Inmaculada Sanz, Javier Ramírez and Loreto Sordo.
Pérez had already appeared in photography in the two television debates that have been held in Madrid, both for the Community of Madrid and for the City Council, when the Podemos candidates showed his image. However, this Thursday, he has already fully entered the electoral campaign.
The phrase. The mayor of Madrid was so shocked by the blow from the president of Real Madrid that he had to take it as a joke and said: "Aggression, aggression. I ask for VAR".
The replica. Podemos has taken advantage of the slap to place a political poster in the final stretch of the campaign in which it appears: "Madrid deserves respect, not slaps." Even Pablo Iglesias has posted a video on Twitter with the controversy.
The context. Podemos wanted to bring the president of Real Madrid into the company, since he considers that many of the businesses that are brewing in the capital are closed in the box at the Bernabéu.
The echo. The aforementioned poster has generated many comments on social networks, such as Twitter. The debate was already open because in the Telemadrid television debate last Monday, Almeida had already complained that the Podemos candidates messed with the president of Real Madrid. Then the slap occurred and this Thursday the end of the controversy was reflected in a viral poster.
