“We Argentines are rather non humble, but rather vain and arrogant” confessed the Pope “We Argentines are rather non humble, but rather vain and arrogant” confessed the Pope

Pope Francis during one of the several interviews motivated by his two years in the Vatican, also referred to his fellow citizens in Argentina, which he described as non humble and on the contrary rather vain and arrogant.

 “The Argentines when they saw an Argentine pope had been named, they forgot about who was in favor or against an Argentine pope. And we Argentines are non humble, but rather vain and arrogant” said Pope Francis, the former archbishop of Buenos Aires City.

He then asked the Mexican reporter that was interviewing him if she knew how Argentines commit suicide.

“Well very simple, they climb on to their ego and then jump off!!!!”

    Yeah he is right, but he is just playing it for the millions and millions of Latin americans that fanatically hate Argentines. In this case Mexicans that became oversensitive because the Pope expressed concern that Argentina was on fast track to “Mexicanization” (i.e narco war and narco state.)... Those comments offended not only Mexicans but the Ks also, who swiftly picked the phones and called the Vatican to have a chit chat with Francis...

    After being photographed by Katina and crew no he complains he was being ”used by the politicians.... Sure old cunt... you are 78 yo, you get to be the Pope being that naive
    Or the Ks showed their fangs or maybe you bid was on the losing side ??

    oh pur-lease! Did you see how over-excited Cristina was when he was made Pope?
    Begging an audience (nearly) every week?

    She thought 'her turn' had arrived!

    She thought that the World was going to start takinig her seriously now, as she had 'God' on Her Side!
    She stupidly thought that she had the Pope in her Camp(ora), and now the World would listen to her...
    She looked a fool. She was proven to be a fool when the world just laughed at her parochial niaviety...

    Now he is safe from her threats and machinations, he ridicules his own nation.

    Anyone care to comment on why?

    After all, they were not friends when he was a Bishop in Argentina...

    I think he is a lot smarter than her.

    I have no doubt that to help remedy this flaw, the world community if asked will vote to nominate the British, the North Americans, the Australians, or other Anglos, as they are renowned for their exceedingly humble, demure, non-boasting nature.
