IMF Employees Give Dominique Strauss-Kahn The Clap

Strauss-Kahn, who was with his wife French TV personality wife Anne Sinclair, drove himself to the headquarters of the International Monetary Fund and met briefly with his successor and fellow French national Christine Lagarde. He later addressed a packed auditorium out of reach of the cameras of televisions crews and photographers who had camped outside the IMF all day waiting for the former director. “He received a very warm welcome,” said Paulo Nogueira Batista, who represents Brazil and a group of eight Latin American countries, after the meeting. “It reflects the fact that he is very much appreciated in the institution,” Nogueira Batista said, adding: “People clapped for very long periods.” Another witness, who asked not to be identified, said staff broke into spontaneous applause before Strauss-Kahn began speaking.

    "And lastly to the women of the IMF that I didn't fuck, I'm pretty sure there are a handful of you here tonight, I extend my sincerest apologies."

    I can only imagine how bad his French TV personality wife's daddy issues are that she hooked up with this guy. And then stays with him.

    "Joe," said DSK, just back from the IMF, "you never heard such cheering!"

    "Yes, I have," DiMaggio answered.

    Along with his five phones, he clearly travels with a syringe of penicillin to help fight off the bigger STDs

    So DSK can allegedly sexually assault numerous women and get an auditorium full of people to applaud yet Matt Levine cannot get a single Dealbreaker reader to like one of his posts…

    If he don't golf, clearly he don't trade propane.
