Former Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, who heads the Forward Italy party, has started his TikTok page.
According to the politician, he came to the social network for a young audience on the eve of the parliamentary elections, in which his party will take part.
In one of his first videos, Berlusconi told subscribers a joke about world leaders:
“In the falling plane are [Russian President Vladimir] Putin, [US leader Joe] Biden, the Pope and his assistant, and Berlusconi himself. There are four parachutes for five people. The first one is taken by Biden with the words “I am the most important in the West”, the second one is taken by Putin with the words “I am the most important in the East”. The third parachute is taken by Berlusconi, saying that “he is the smartest politician in the world.” After that, the assistant to the Pope extends the remaining parachute to the pontiff, but he refuses, urging the young man to save himself. To which the assistant replies: “Take it, Your Holiness, there are two parachutes left – Berlusconi jumped out with my backpack.”
Berlusconi also promised in his videos that his party will make every effort to help Italian youth succeed in life and achieve all their dreams. The politician admitted that he is a little jealous of the young. In a short time, the video has gained more than five million views.
