    "Mayor Bill de Blasio publicly told Brazil’s president on Monday to not “bother coming” to this year’s UN General Assembly in an impotent show of force against world leaders who aren’t vaccinated against COVID-19 — and don’t need the mayor’s permission to come here.
    The futile demand came a day before Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro is expected to defy the city’s vaccine mandate for people attending indoor public gatherings.
    “We need to send a message to all the world leaders, including most notably Bolsonaro from Brazil, that if you intend to come here, you need to be vaccinated,” de Blasio said while holding his daily briefing in Queens.
    “If you don’t want to be vaccinated, don’t bother coming because everyone should be safe together.”
    Under UN tradition, as president of Brazil, Bolsonaro will be the first speaker when the General Assembly begins its 76th annual debate on Tuesday."
    ......
    "If the Brazilian president pitches a violent fit, however — as three tourists from Texas are accused of doing last week — diplomatic immunity would prevent him from being prosecuted, the sources said."
