Tuesday, Prime Minister Donald Tusk had some interesting things to say about buttons and about summer. Too bad the female journalist was trying to ask him about politics.
Here’s what went down. A journalist from Polskie Radi0 questioned Prime Minister Tusk about the Polish presidency of the European Union asking if everything was “buttoned to the last button” which is an idiom in Polish meaning that everything is all prepared –something like dotting your i’s and crossing your t’s in English.
Tusk replied (translation mine), “ The buttons are all buttoned up for sure… I’m a little bit … I am looking at your summer dress, Ms. Editor, and that’s why I don’t associate buttons to this…buttoning up to the last button. It’s not a rebuke, on the contrary. I really like … summer.
Here’s the original quote: Guziki wszystkie zapięte na pewno… Trochę taki jestem… Patrzę na letni strój pani redaktor i dlatego nie kojarzy mi się z tym… z dopięciem wszystkiego na ostatni guzik. To nie przygana, wręcz przeciwnie. Bardzo lubię… lato.
Tusk, Tusk, Tusk…I mean tsk, tsk, tsk.
