The problem is pointing a finger at others, while excusing  (or ignoring) your own policies. It tends to come (in most of those countries) with victim blaming.

Yeah.....   Blame a spent power with a per capita income less than 1/5 of the US per capita income for dumb, stupid, easy to manipulate American voters.    

Or perhaps more to the point, blame the Russians for the US culture wars, racial conflict, 'us versus them' politics, polarization and similar.

Open question:  Who relies more on fingerpointing?   Donald Trump and his band of keen populists?   Or   Ne0-Marxist guided populists with an authoritarian streak?

Bolivia's interim president Jeanine Áñez promises new elections

excerpts:

Añez cuts a starkly contrasting figure with Morales.

Entering the parliament building on Tuesday night, she brandished an outsized bible, in an explicit rebuke to Morales, who banned the Christian holy book from the presidential palace when he reformed the constitution in 2009 to recognize Pachamama, the Andean Mother Earth deity, instead of the Catholic church.

.......

Her sudden move to the political centre stage prompted a closer look at racist remarks towards Bolivia’s indigenous majority on her social media accounts.

One tweet from 2013 – later deleted – describes indigenous Aymara new year’s celebrations as “satanic” and concludes: “Nobody can replace God!” In another post, she questioned whether a group of indigenous people were genuine because they were wearing shoes.

A little historical perspective on the #BoliviaCoup/#NoFueGolpeDeEstado debate…



Bolivia has had numerous coups over the last ninety years, beginning in May 1936 and ending in October 1982. From 1936 to 1985, a military ruler headed the government 57% of the time.

Bolivia has also had many changes of government prompted by disruptive protests. These include at least all of those in this table.
Typically, the 1952 Revolution, 1979 and 1982 restoration of democracy, and the 2003 and 2005 Gas Wars are not thought of as coups. Nor is the early election forced by strikes in 1985.

Why? I think: In all of these cases, the military signaled limits to further state repression, stayed out of the presidential chair, and did not substitute its choice of leaders for one determined at the ballot box.

<...>

Not a day where I think being intellectually consistent is going to make many people happy with me.

Bolivia: audios leaked from opposition leaders calling for a coup against Evo Morales
A series of 16 audios in which opposition leaders call for a coup against the newly re-elected president Evo Morales were leaked through various social platforms.

Local media point out that the destabilizing plan would have been coordinated by the United States Embassy in Bolivia prior to the elections and cites US senators Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio, who are said to have direct contact with the Bolivian opposition in the strategy to overthrow Morales.

The plan focuses on the fact that if Evo Morales won the elections on October 20, a civil-military transition government would be established. The new government would allege fraud in the electoral process and would not recognize Morales' electoral victory.

Bolivia coup led by Christian fascist paramilitary leader and millionaire – with foreign support
