According to alfahir.hu, a public media worker asked the wrong question from Prime Minister Viktor Orbán, who reacted quite vehemently.
The reporter asked Viktor Orbán about his discussion with the President of the European Parliament, Martin Schultz. “I asked the president to respect Hungarians and to stop using legislative tricks in the future” said the prime minister, who stated that he stood up against obligatory quotas, and added in a hot-tempered way: “I must leave now!”.
However, he wasn’t expecting that the cameras of HírTV will be still on after he enters the gate, so it is clearly audible as he turns to his press agent Bertalan Havasi and says: “What an ass-hole!”
Havasi then starts to comfort the PM by saying that “this is all right (…) and anyway the radio, … it was done in the morning”. “It’s done? And is this all right?” asks back Orbán, so Havasi reassures him again.
In his interview with Kossuth Radio last Friday morning, Viktor Orbán talked about how stopping the crowds coming into Europe could possible be done by taking action. This was probably the subject the public television channel should’ve reported on, but the “ass-hole” reporter asked something else.
