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.
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
"As I plan my wedding, a creepy weirdo next to me is making me feel nauseous. Puts the marriage in context." https://t.co/htqqSsEBkT

Hannan eventually deleted the tweet, and blamed others for not having a sense of humour
You Tweet about happy people; Twitter gloomsters go mad.

Life can be so cruel…
