Berlusconi and the Bums

Translation from La Stampa 18-06-2009, STAMPA, NAZIONALE, pag.3

Ex president Chirac “Silvio? His place was full of mags with pictures of nude girls.

The french weekly “L’express interviewed Jacques Chirac who recalled two things about Silvio Berlusconi, “a bit of an oddball” as the ex-president of France defined him.

According to the weekly, one day the President of the italian cabinet invited the Head of State for France – without his wife Bernadette- to one of his villas. Whilst showing him the bathroom Berlusconi came out with “You have no idea how many bums have sat on that bidet.” In the other anecdote Chirac noticed that there were lots of magazines with photos of nude women around. “Not very agreeable” recalls Chirac. I asked him why he had left those mags around. Berlusconi’s reply, with a wave of the hand, “I’ve had her and her as well” ……..”

Hope I got the translation right.  Original is below. What can I say. Lets hope the man gets over his semenopausal crisis soon.

Update: Thanks to the wife for tidying up the translation – particularly the last phrase “Questa e’ stata mia..” Questa as in “that lump of meat” – uggh.

L’ex presidente Chirac «Silvio? Era pieno di riviste con foto di donne nude»

Il settimanale francese «L’Express» intervista Jacques Chirac, che evoca due ricordi di Silvio Berlusconi, «un tipo un po’ strano», lo definisce l’ex Presidente francese. «Un giorno – si legge sul settimanale – il presidente del Consiglio italiano invita il capo di Stato francese – senza la moglie Bernadette – in una delle sue ville. Nel mostrargli la stanza da bagno, Berlusconi commenta: ”Non hai idea di quante natiche abbia accolto questo bide’!”». Nell’altro aneddoto invece, Chirac nota la presenza di numerose riviste con foto di donne nude. «Cosa non convenevole», ha raccontato Chirac: «Gli chiesi perche’ avesse lasciato in giro quelle riviste». Risposta di Silvio Berlusconi, che con la mano indica: «Questa e’ stata mia quella pure. ..».
