Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi is pretty much a huge douchebag and he is swinging Italy toward fascism. Also, he apparently doesn't know what black people are.
Speaking at a joint news conference with Russian President Dmitry Medvedev in Moscow, the 72-year-old media tycoon also said Obama's election to the White House had been "hailed by world public opinion as the arrival of a messiah".
"I will try to help relations between Russia and the United States where a new generation has come to power, and I don't see problems for Medvedev to establish good relations with Obama who is also handsome, young and suntanned," he said.
Yes, it's a fucking awesome tan. Like, generations awesome.
