So I am going to guess that, during this guy’s administration, the French people are not going to become less arrogant. Just a guess. And what “big job” does this guy have to do that he can’t be interviewed for 20 minutes. First, it’s France. Second, it’s been around for like 2000 years. I think an hour without a president won’t ruin things. The Eiffel Tower will have still too many blinking lights. The crowd at the Mona Lisa will still be overwhelming. And the wait staff will still be dismissive.
French president storms out of 60 Minutesinterview
France’s new president Nicolas Sarkozy ended a 60 Minutesinterview, conducted in Paris, aimed at introducing him to U.S. audiences, calling it ”stupid” and a ”big mistake” and refusing to answer questions about his wife. ”I don’t have the time. I have a big job to do, I have a schedule,” Sarkozy said through a translator before the interview even began. In English, he added: ”Very busy. Very busy.” The interview aired Sunday (Oct. 28).
