Apparently, Melih Gökçek, the Mayor of Ankara and close ally of President Recep Tayyip Erdogan went on a Twitter rampage of late directing his sexist remarks at the acting spokesperson of the State Department, Marie Harf. Man, that’s one angry fella. This guy is like … mighty mad, we could hear him screaming his head off in ALL CAPS on Twitter. Ms. Harf refused to dignify Mr. Gokcek’s insulting words and declined to response. The only appropriate response on personal attacks like this especially when hurled by a politician lacking decorum.
In related news, the U.S. Ambassador to Turkey John Bass just turned blonde. Güzel efendim!
