So it has become apparent that Sarkozy snapped at one of the members of the French Public at the Farming Fair.
The apparent exchange went as follows:
French Voter after Sarkozy tried to shake their hand, “Oh no, don’t touch me, you’ll dirty me.”
Mr Sarkozy replies: “Get lost then you bloody idiot, just get lost!”
Ok, so its not the best reply, but some of our leaders have to work 18 hour days and are under immense pressure to perform consistently, and well are unlikely to ever receive any word of thanks, and very little praise.
I think it is perfectly normal for politicians to snap, and quite frankly in my opinion it shows their human, and that they do show emotion, I certainly would not approve of someone refusing to shake my hand because I would make them, ‘dirty’.
And the biggest political overreaction, I though I would post a video to remind us all :-)
