It’s President Francois Borat! French leader facing ridicule after picture of him in traditional Kazakh costume is posted online

Francois Hollande was facing ridicule across France yesterday (sun) after posing in a ‘Borat-style’ traditional Kazakh fur hat and coat.

The hapless Socialist president had done everything possible to stop the photo being published, but now it has gone viral across the internet.

It shows the 60-year-old head of state standing next to Nursultan Nazarbayev, the President of Kazakhstan…

    Had someone told me that was the current French fashion I would have thought nothing of it.
    He should be more embarrassed by what he’s done to his country and not what he wears.

    Wonder if Pres. Borat was treated to one of the most unique Kazakh dishes, smoked horse meat, during his sojourn there. Perhaps not, as the dish and the president have a lot in common.

      The French eat horses.
      At least France doesn’t have a leader that eats dogs, so they got that!

    Not as exciting a movie as the new movie the media is reporting on, A film on Obama’s first date with his later to be wife. I’m sure Hollywood will give it the oscar.
