After Being Mocked on TV, Ecuador President Asks If English Comedians Exist (VIDEO)

QUITO – Ecuadorean President Rafael Correa lampooned by British television presenter John Oliver last weekend asked on Twitter if there existed comedians in England.

“Has there ever been an English comedian? Are you sure?” Correa tweeted, attaching a link to the newspaper report of El Comercio on the comments of the presenter.

Oliver hosts a popular show “Last Week Tonight” and took up the cyber battle launched by Correa against those he believes are manipulating the truth about him through social networks.

The comedian in his program also mocked a clown that appears in one of the reports the president offers every Saturday and said that “every presidential speech should include a clown.”

He also said that the president’s war on social networks is a lost cause because no one has ever won and advised him to stop looking himself up on Google.

“Stop googling yourself. You are the president of Ecuador,” said Oliver.

Correa, who often uses Twitter to send messages to the people, limited himself to briefly question the existence of English comedians without going into much detail.

In another tweet that Correa posted Tuesday, he said that his account has exceeded two million followers this week.

“We are more, we are much more,” added the president, referring to those he considers to be political enemies who attack the Citizen’s Revolution, as the government’s project is popularly known.

Correa also joined Facebook, where he can write longer messages than on Twitter, which only allows messages of 140 characters.
