The world’s most powerful woman demeaned.
Italian premier Silvio Berlusconi reportedly called German Chancellor Angela Merkel an “unfuckable lard-arse” during a wiretapped conversation, the Independent of London reports.
Investigators overheard the remarks during a July phone conversation between Berlusconi and the man accused of supplying prostitutes to the prime minister’s parties, the Independent states. Berlusconi used the Italian phrase, “culona inchiavabile,” reports the Atlantic.
If someone like Merkel, who has done a fairly good job of keeping her country together through all this, who is intelligent and hard-working, has to put up with things like this, what hope of avoiding it do we lesser creatures have?
