Because this guy just majorly endeared himself to me with the following novel approach to an urghly problem:
The president of Ecuador, Rafael Correa, today invited the young Spaniard, Sergi Xavier M. M., who assaulted a young Ecuadorian girl on a train in Barcelona, to visit Ecuador and receive help to overcome his problem.
“We invite him to come to Ecuador so we can show him what it is to love, what it is to be in solidarity, and we are ready to help him overcome his troubles,” said Correa in his regular Saturday radio show.
The president insisted that the violent attitude of the youth against the immigrant “absolutely does not represent the Spanish people.”
“They are extraordinary. They opened their arms to us. In most cases, our emigrants are very well treated” in Spain, said President Correa. He added that when it came to Sergi, “we should not feel rage, we should feel sorry.”
Translation mine. Link added.
Any suggestions for an endearing nickname?
BTW, if you need inspiration, look at this picture…
Then this one:
You have to admit there’s quite a resemblance. Except that El Superpresidente Correa has groovier shirts.
PS: I just gave him his own category, since it seems that he has become someone well worth watching, in more ways than one. It’s still relatively small, but it is Ecuadorable As Can Be.
