Erdoğan accuses French MP of being French

When asked by French MP Muriel Marland-Militello about freedom of religion in Turkey, the Turkish Prime Minister responded that “I believe this friend is French? She is also ‘French’ to Turkey.” Being “French” about something is a colloquial Turkish expression meaning ignorant or confused. The joke did not go down well.

And unfortunately for Erdoğan, Marland-Militello is actually of Turkish-Armenian origin… The Turkish daily Hürriyet goes into details with the title “She is not that French, actually”.
