The husband of Argentinian President Cristina Fernández, former Argentinian President Néstor Kirchner, passed away yesterday. My President, Juan Manual Santos, was interviewed over this international event. The first question: What do you think of the death of former President Kirchner? SERIOUSLY!?! What the heck is he supposed to answer? "I think it's awesome that he's dead, he was quite frankly more handsome than I am."
Chilean President Sebastián Piñeres also commented: "I see Cristina very strong, but very moved." Again--SERIOUSLY!?! Her husband just died at age 60, suddenly, without any apparent signal (because Death always warns us, you know...), and you see her moved?
Come on, people. Better questions. Better answers.
