Lost in Translation

Sometimes I can’t help but laugh at people who try a bit too hard to be cleverer than everyone else. Here is a case of a certain politician giving an interview to a certain news channel concerning the arrest of a certain activist. Not verbatim but definitely very close!

Interviewer: “Some people say that this is a deliberate campaign against opponents of your government…” (interrupted)
Interviewee: “If in your country you have started campaigning that is okay but here our campaign starts in 2014.”

I stooped my head in shame!
