Silvio Berlusconi Doesn’t Give A F*** (Yeah, We Noticed, Thanks.)
Someone blackmailed Silvio Berlusconi to cover up his dalliances with prostitutes. To FrenemiesBlog, that’s not newsworthy. If he wasn’t getting blackmailed, it would mean he hadn’t taught the Italian people how to do anything during his tenure.
Note: He paid the blackmailers, Giampaolo Tarantini and his wife, $714,000 by the time all was said and done, because Giampolo had helped procure prostitutes for some of Berlusconi’s bunga-bunga parties. The Tarantinis were arrested Thursday. Yadda-yadda
Okay, so the news is in the recorded phone calls that are now being played publicly during the Tarantini trial. Apparently, Berlusconi’s phone was tapped during the blackmail investigation. Frankly, all of this boggles our mind— but here’s a part of a conversation he had with newspaper editor Valter Lavitola:
“I couldn’t give a f***. In a few months I’m going to go away and mind my own f****** business. I’m leaving this s*** country that makes me feel like puking,” he said, according to a report by Italian news agency ANSA.
“I’m so transparent, so clean in everything I do. There’s nothing I could be reproached for. I don’t do anything that could be seen as a crime. People can say I f*** but that’s all they can say,” Berlusconi was quoted as saying.
Ha! Okay, Silvio.
