Italian leader says he’s paler than Obama
Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, who once described U.S. President Barack Obama as
sun-tanned, revived the issue by saying he is paler.
But, ever the politician, Berlusconi quickly added,
I'm paler, Berlusconi, 72, noted for his tan, told The Guardian, a British newspaper,
because it's been so long since I've been in the sun.
He (Obama) is more handsome, younger and taller.
