Berlusconi Allegedly Insults Merkel

Are there any women left that Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi hasn’t somehow offended? Berlusconi reportedly called German Chancellor Angela Merkel a vulgar insult in a conversation with an Italian journalist, and while nobody knows exactly what was said, rumors flew Wednesday that he called the 71-year-old an “unf---able fat---.” The conversation was picked up by authorities who are investigating Berlusconi’s alleged role in a $1 million extortion plot. Berlusconi did not comment about the allegations, but a paper owned by him, Il Giornale, described the allegation as “gossip.” Berlusconi is infamous for his womanizing and is currently on trial for allegedly having sex with an underage prostitute. He’s also gotten in trouble lately for off-the-cuff comments, including calling his country “shitty.”
