Stabbing in the News

This month, far right Brazilian presidential candidate Jair Bolsonaro was stabbed during a political rally.

The notoriously pro-gun candidate may now consider an anti-knife platform.

Since the stabbing, he leads in the polls. Rivals may have to take a bullet to compete.

Pointed expressions

To take a stab (at doing something): to attempt, to try.
Ex: I took a stab at running for president, then someone stabbed me.

To stab in the back: to betray.
"True friends stab you in the front" -Oscar Wilde. Bolsonaro’s new motto if he wins the election.
