If you were at the State of the Union viewing party / bar night we co-sponsored with DL21C, Greater NYC for Change, and a number of other groups, you might have noticed a reporter and camera crew. Turns out they were working for a Swiss TV station, getting footage and interviews for a news segment on the State of the Union speech and public reaction.
Among their interviewees was MYD member and Manhattan Democratic District Leader Paul Newell! I think my favorite part is when Paul starts talking, and then immediately they kill the volume on what he’s saying and a translator starts speaking for him…in Swiss German. Swiss German! Don’t you wish you could have whatever you say translated into Swiss German?
But seriously, this is cool. Here’s the full video.
