Dan Hannan MEP

Tory MEP Daniel Hannan certainly says some very odd things on Twitter and in the media. But he topped all of that today with this tweet.

This wasn’t a joke tweet or something said in irony, by the way:

Perhaps Hannan was trying to atone for his past.

In 2010 he wrote for the Telegraph (hat tip @jpublik):

Barack Obama has an exotic background and it would be odd if some people weren’t unsettled by it.

Hannan’s tweet today soon started attracting ridicule on Twitter





Hannan eventually deleted the tweet, and blamed others for not having a sense of humour


Life can be so cruel…

    Don’t be unfair to Dan. I’m sure that when he said ‘a pretty black woman’ he just meant that she wasn’t all that black, just FAIRLY black. Still, even PRETTY black is a bit exotic and it’s good of him not to have been unsettled by the experience.
