Quote# 117041

A Turkish truck driver has lodged a legal complaint against his own wife for insulting President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, pro-government media reported on Monday.

Ali D., 40, who married G.D. three years ago, warned his wife repeatedly not to curse at the president when he appeared on television, Yeni Safak newspaper reported on its website.

But her wife defied his warning and challenged her husband, saying: "Record and lodge a complaint."

The man duly recorded his wife's "insults" as evidence for the case and lodged a complaint with Izmir prosecutors. It was not immediately clear if and when the case would go to trial.

"I kept on warning her, saying why are you doing this? Our president is a good person and did good things for Turkey," Ali D. was quoted as saying by Yeni Safak.

But he said his wife kept on insulting Erdogan or just changed the channel whenever the president appeared on television.

"Even if it is my father who swears against or insults the president, I would not forgive and I would complain," the husband said.

In return, the 38-year-old woman opened a case against her husband for divorce, according to the report.

Meh`d. Tbh overzealous nationalist supporters can be nasty buisness and will often disenfranchise their family. Good for the wife for dropping the asshole.

And I thought Republican nationalists were rabidly fanatical about their leaders.

I question the emotional intelligence of a leader who has laws against insulting him.

Will it in a few years' time go like this?

A New York truck driver has lodged a legal complaint against his own wife for insulting President Donald Trump, pro-government media reported on Monday.

Michael E., 40, who married G.E. three years ago, warned his wife repeatedly not to curse at the president when he appeared on television, the New York Times reported on its website.

But his wife defied his warning and challenged her husband, saying: "Record and lodge a complaint." The man duly recorded his wife's "insults" as evidence for the case and lodged a complaint with local prosecutors. It was not immediately clear if and when the case would go to trial. "I kept on warning her, saying why are you doing this? Our president is a good person and did good things for America," Michael E. was quoted as saying by the New York Times.

But he said his wife kept on insulting Trump or just changed the channel whenever the president appeared on television. "Even if it is my father who swears against or insults the president, I would not forgive and I would complain," the husband said. In return, the 38-year-old woman opened a case against her husband for divorce, according to the report.

Oh, the horror! Not changing the channel!

@Hairtoucher:

A quick Google search shows that this report appeared in several German news media. They are all mentioning an article by the Turkish newspaper Yeni Safak as the source, which according at least to Wikipedia is very Erdogan-friendly. Maybe someone who speaks Turkish could go on their website and check if it is real.

Well, why don't you just divorce her, and marry him, Al...?! [/Doug Piranha-levels of sarcasm]

I don't see what all the fuss is about. I mean, it's not like she prepared for the president's appearance by eating a can of beans and shoving a whistle up her ass.

Me thinks the guy simply wanted to get rid of the missus, and is simply protesting as loud as he can for now.

Dubious.

Given this is Turkey, and given this is Erdogan, this is, sadly, entirely believable.

He's going to be very lonely and I feel that Erdogan is not going to hung out with him
