Germans embarrassed by their racist Eurocrat

Jeez, this guy should join the Trump campaign.


Oettinger was recently promoted to become EU budget commissioner, one of the most powerful positions in Brussels, having already served since 2010 as energy commissioner and then digital economy commissioner.

But when he has made headlines, it has often been for statements which indicate a lack of sensibility for the modern world, rather than on his own EU policy beat.

The latest in a long line of gaffes came at a business event in Hamburg in October, where the 63-year-old was secretly recorded disparaging Chinese people with the terms “slitty eyes” and “chiselers”.

He also mocked a delegation of Chinese ministers, saying they had “their hair combed from left to right with shoe polish.”
