Temer's ice cream order has Brazil screamingHis country mired in recession, Brazilian President Michel Temer's government ordered $400,000 worth of food, including 500 cartons of Haagen-Dazs ice cream and 1.5 tons of chocolate cake, for his official plane trips in 2017 only to cancel the order hours later amid public outrage. The most immediate risk to Temer's presidency comes from a trial in Brazil's top electoral court, which is looking at alleged illegal campaign financing in the 2014 presidential election, which featured Rousseff and Temer as running mates.Rousseff and Temer deny wrongdoing. A Temer resignation or ouster would create new turmoil for a country still recovering from the tumultuous ouster of Rousseff.Congress could pick a new president to finish the term through 2018, or new elections could be called. The general economic climate is so bad that analysts say the urgency to find solutions could help push through Temer's proposed reform of the pension system, long untouchable in Brazilian politics.
