Norwegian immigration minister plays like an idiot
There are some unfortunate people born idiots and some who become idiots and then there are politicians.
Is it a fish, a shark, a submarine?
No it’s the Norwegian Immigration Minister Sylvi Listhaug, playing an idiot stunt to “be like a refugee”. She donned a survival suit and jumped off a Norwegian rescue boat into the Mediterranean and was then immediately fished out. The ridiculous PR stunt was so she could say that she knew it was like to be a refugee dumped into the Mediterranean. For her next trick she will close her eyes for a whole minute to know what it is like to blind.

Images of Immigration Minister Sylvi Listhaug floating in the Mediterranean Sea in a survival suit have sparked a social media backlash.
Listhaug, a Progress Party member known for her hard-line stance, pulled off the stunt off the coast of Lesbos as a way to familiarize herself with the rescue work carried out by the crew of the Norwegian ship ‘Peter Henry von Koss’.
She said that by floating in the sea she would also get a chance to se things from the perspective of migrants who risk their lives crossing the sea to Europe.
“You can’t put yourself into the same situation as the refugees but you can see it from that perspective [and experience] how it is to be in the water that way,” she told NTB.
