The 5'6" lecherous lothario, recently described by his own staff as sex addict and currently undergoing a divorce from his wife following a string of affairs with young women, was strictly despatched by America's first couple with a polite handshake and series of backpats. Not that the Obamas are cold - other world leaders were greeted with far more affection. It's just that... well... would you?
UPDATE: On his return from the G20 summit yesterday, Berlusconi spoke at a rally and, clearly failing to learn from the outcry that followed similar comments last November, said: "I have to bring you some greetings, greetings from a man, what is his name, what is his name - just a minute it was someone with a tan - Barack Obama."
He then added: "You won't believe it but they went together to the beach to get a tan because even his wife is suntanned." What a smart, savvy and sensitive guy.
