Nicolas’ Tantrum

I had heard about this tantrum our cher President Nicolas Sarkozy had thrown on the set of 60 Minutes, but I’d never actually seen the clip until last night when Franck wad fiddling around with YouTube.

Here it is:

It is an impressive hissy fit, though personally I do think he was right to stick to his guns about not answering any questions to do with his marriage.

However, the first part where he is berating one of his media team before the interview begins makes him look like a snarly little wannabe Napoleon. He controls his media image very tightly, and must have been tres ticked that this got leaked.

For your viewing pleasure!
