US ambassador being owned by Dutch journalists is something to behold

We need more of this sort of thing over here, as soon as possible please.

It’s Peter Hoekstra, Donald Trump’s new ambassador to the Netherlands, who was quizzed by Dutch journalists over claims he made 3 years ago that there were ‘no-go’ zones in the country because of the ‘Islamic movement’ and ‘cars and politicians are being burned’.

Did they let it lie? No, they didn’t, reports the Washington Post.

“If you’re truly an honest and wise man, could you please take back the remark about burned politicians or name the politician that was burned in the Netherlands?”

“Excuse me, I asked you a question.”

“Mr. Ambassador, can you mention any example of a Dutch politician who was burned in recent years?”

“This is the Netherlands, you have to answer questions.”

“We were all astonished that he didn’t want to take back the comment. It was simply untrue, so why not take it back?”

And it’s not the first time the new ambassador has faced awkward questions his remarks. Remember this?
