Obama pays tribute to Angela Merkel: 'A role model'

by News Update

The former US president Barack Obama has paid tribute to Angela Merkel in a farewell video during what was expected to be the outgoing chancellor of Germany’s final meeting in Brussels. ‘Thanks to you, the centre has held through many storms,’ Obama said in the video aired in the summit room in the Europa building. ‘So many people, girls and boys, men and women, have had a role model who they could look up to through challenging times. I know because I am one of them. Danke schön’

One dictator praising another. Where have I seen that before? One little guy from Italy praising a bloke with a mustache from Germany.

She was not a role model to those who want a Germany from the 1930s like half the commenters from this channel.

1 old codger praising another old codger. But, they have both become rich by fooling the public.
