Italy’s bungling prime minister caused embarrassment last night when he complimented US President-elect Barack Obama on his “suntan”.
Silvio Berlusconi praised America’s first black president for being “young, handsome and tanned”.Last night Mr Berlusconi, 72 – no stranger himself to a year-round suntan – was condemned for his remarks.
But the Italian leader, who himself sports a suntan, hit back at his critics - accusing them of not having a sense of humour.
"God save us from the imbeciles," he said.
COMMENT...Hee hee hee, hilarious, my sides are splitting! Good on you Berlusconi. I wonder if Gormless Gorden who is clearly an imbecile will arrest Berlusconi when he comes to Britain for a hate crime against Britain's closest ally.
