A Reporter Singing "Happy Birthday" To Angela Merkel Is Fist-Bitingly Awkward
At a press conference in Brussels, a reporter decided to congratulate the German chancellor on her 60th birthday. It was a very cringe moment.
Reporter: "Before I put my first question, I think I speak on behalf of all my colleagues here in Brussels, I would like to congratulate you warmly on your birthday."
"We wish you all the best, good health and everything, for the future."
"And if you are brave enough to listen to a birthday song, I want to sing now."
"HAPPY HIRTHDAY LIEBES BUNDESCOUNCILLOR, HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU."
Here is the full excrutiating episode, if you can stand it.
