Argentina’s Vice President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner had an absolutely horrifying moment on Thursday.
As she was making her way to the entrance of Fernandez de Kirchner’s Buenos Aires home, a gun suddenly appeared.
The assassin thrust it into her face, but appeared to lose the grip or just panic.
He never managed to get off a shot, but it did not take away from the horror she must have experienced.
The video is quite disturbing.
As supporters were greeting the VP, you suddenly see the gun appear and pure horror on her face…

Authorities found the gun near the spot of the attempted assassination.
The man who drew the weapon was also taken into custody.
Brazil’s Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva stated, “Cristina is the victim of a criminal fascist who does not know how to respect differences.
“Thank God she escaped unharmed.”
