The Prime Vice President and Minister of the Presidency, Carmen Calvo, has made a fool of himself this Sunday after thanking «Juan Diego Botto and other actors and actresses »of the play A moonless night. The problem is that the only one to be thanked for his work on stage is Botto, since the play is a monologue about the life of Federico García Lorca written and performed by the actor himself.
Calvo’s mistake by sharing a message on social networks to congratulate the cast has ended as expected. The team of community managers hastily correcting the vice president’s text to minimize the impact. But the damage to the image of the Government’s number 2 had already been done.
Calvo wrote: «A moonless night. Great work, fantastic interpretation of Juan Diego Botto and other actors and actresses. Lorca, always Crazy ».
The problem came after sharing the message. It was the director of the play himself, Sergio Peris-Mencheta, the one who made Calvo ridiculous with a clear and concise message: “It’s a monologue, Minister.”
Carmen Calvo, to hide it, only needed to check the work file to realize that the gaffe was stark. Besides the aforementioned director, the only interpreter –it is what monologues have– is Juan Diego Botto. A position that, in addition, he has combined with that of the author of the text that he himself interprets. The rest of the participants in the play that is performed at the Spanish Theater are already part of the technical team: lighting, props or music. But no trace of “actors and actresses” accompanying Juan Diego Botto on stage.
Once those responsible for networks detected the error, they corrected the message, from which the “actors and actresses” referred to by Calvo mysteriously disappeared. Of course, the hilarious messages due to the ridicule of the vice president did not stop on the networks since the image of the original message has gone viral. Among the comments that have criticized Calvo, several point out that “it is a shame, without seeing the work and giving an opinion.”
“Public money belongs to nobody”
Carmen Calvo has been the protagonist of some of the most hilarious phrases that are reminded of a member of the Government. Among the most recent, the mess that arose when he tried to explain the spread of the coronavirus with incredible knowledge of geography: «New York, Madrid, Tehran and Beijing are almost in a straight lineNot exactly but almost in a straight line, horizontally, which are three of the big cities where there has been a problem of the devil.
It must be remembered that Carmen Calvo was Minister of Culture between 2004 and 2007, also leaving phrases that make time: “We are handling public money and public money does not belong to anyone.” More phrases that are not in line with the level and a profile of a Minister of Culture or a Vice President of the Government, such as “I want UNESCO to legislate for all planets”, “a rock concert in Spanish does more for Castilian than the Cervantes Institute “Or” the book is very useful because its batteries do not run out. “
