Hugo criticized Merkel for belonging to the conservative Christian Democratic Union, calling the movement "the same right wing that supported Hitler and fascism."
He was on the verge of launching more insults at Merkel, but suddenly stopped short."Ms. Chancellor, you can go to ..." he said during his weekly television and radio program, before pausing. Then he added: "Because you are a lady, I won't say any more."
As if Hugo would know a lady or a gentleman if he fell over one. Hugo just can't shake his roots as an uncouth lower class thug. He reminds me of a Khrushchev with less refinement.
