Makiko Tanaka is amusing

I’m binging on tonight, and came across the following brief anecdote in their profile of President Bush (scroll to bottom):

17 Jun 2001 – Japanese Foreign Minister Makiko Tanaka returns to German Town High School in Philadelphia, where she studied for two years as a high school student. During a conversation with her former classmates, Tanaka gives her concise assessment of President George W Bush: “He is totally an asshole.”

I offer a cash reward to anyone who can find audio or video of this.

  1. What kind of cash reward?

    God that is funny — when politicians and aides pulled similar Bush-bashing stunts in Germany or Canada they got pats on the back from the PM. In Japan, you get fired! HAhahahahaha
