"What's his name? Some tanned guy. Ah, Barack Obama! You won't believe it, but the two of them sunbathe together because the wife is also tanned."
After meeting with President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle at the G-20 summit in 2009, Berlusconi returned to Italy bearing greetings from the President of the United States. Unfortunately, he also couldn't resist trotting out his favorite inappropriate joke, referring to both Barack and Michelle's (or as Berlusconi would say, "the wife's") complexions as a couple of great tans. The Italian Prime Minister had used the tanned line once before, just days after Obama's election in 2008 calling the then Senator "young, handsome and suntanned." Funny, nobody laughed the first time either.
