Ferfal, Have you heard of Maria Belen Chafur, the mistress of the Governor of South Carolina? Have you seen a picture of her? Are people in Argentina talking about this?
As for diff between USA and Argentina, all I can say is the USA has changed beyond recognition. When we were kids, 30+ years ago, life was so tame. You could go anywhere as a kid at any time and there was no danger (I'm talking about a mid size city in the Western USA) There was NO divorce (unheard of) no single moms (the rare single mom gave up the child for adoption) there was no welfare at all for single moms, virtually no illegal immigration, etc
I remember my brother, a historian, saying, people will look back at the 50's and early 60's as the calmest years ever.
So, yes, we are resembling more Argentina. However, the country used to be extremely honest, hard working, and calm.

Yes, the news is being spread a bit here, but most of the comments are rather positive, they constantly mention how American politicians seem to have a great feeling of guilt, while our local politicians constantly do the same or much worse, and yet never go public and ask for forgiveness.
The woman is a 41 year old single mother of two teenage kids, she’s a good looking brunette. Apparently they visited various romantic places, restaurants in Buenos Aires.
The news here is mostly showed as “Look how Americans do great mess over a little thing”.
The big news here is A flu. It’s just ripping through us, as anyone would have guessed since there just NO government to do anything about it. They just deny, deny and deny.
A-flu has affected swine here in Buenos Aires, and then back to humans, it affected everyone in a meat processing plant.
I’m worried and we’re talking about leaving the country. You visibly see and hear a huge amount of sick people. We try staying home as much as possible, use masks when going outside, use lots of hand sanitizer and shower. Our kids don’t leave the house anymore, my oldest one isn’t going to school (3 weeks now).
