You have got to be shitting me.
Silvio Berlusconi, the Italian Prime Minister, is so fricking rude. He told a German TV station that the 17,000 people left homeless by the Abruzzo earthquake should consider themselves to be on a “camping weekend”. His idea of roughing it is the G20 Summit.
““They have everything they need, they have medical care, hot food… Of course, their current lodgings are a bit temporary, but they should see it like a weekend of camping.” http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/world/europe/article6058369.ece
The Italian PM is known for his gaffes. He compared a German member of the European Parliament to a concentration camp guard and described Barack Obama as “young, handsome and suntanned.”
Young handsome and suntanned does not equate to having the best interest of your people at heart. Most certainly referring to disaster victims as heading out for a camping trip is, something an asshole would say. Then again Obama said he didn’t speak Austrian. “It was also interesting to see that political interaction in Europe is not that different from the United States Senate. There’s a lot of — I don’t know what the term is in Austrian — wheeling and dealing — and, you know, people are pursuing their interests, and everybody has their own particular issues and their own particular politics.” Hello, Obama… most Austrians speak German. uggh.
Berlusconi’s own government denied scientific evidence and now he laughs in their faces. Giampaolo Guiliani posted it on the internet and vans drove through town with warnings.
The other percentage of voters who did not vote Obama gave warnings as well.
