Obama has a great tan, says Italy's PM Berlusconi

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.

  1. If Berlusconi had said
    "young, handsome and black" no-one would have batted an eyelid probably. And Yes he is right about wanting to be saved from imbeciles. We have plenty of them here.
