The president Traian Basescu may just be the world’s most evil man, journalists from the MSNBC said. The American television mocked the Bucharest authorities’ intention of taxing witches. “The Romanian president has a deficit-reduction plan: he’s going to tax the witches,” the report said. The Americans also mocked Basescu on account of the “purple flame” episode: “The president protects himself by wearing purple clothes on Thursdays. How silly is that?”, the TV host commented.
