There’s not much to add by way of commentary here. Bolivian President Evo Morales, who plays for a minor-league soccer team in La Paz, was caught on tape giving a blatant kick to the groin of an opposing player who had committed a hard foul on him earlier. Somehow Morales didn’t get a red card and went on to score a goal in the game, presumably because no one really wants to play defense on someone with presidential immunity.
