There was a very serious edition of the Dutch news show Nieuwsuur recently but it took a very comic turn. The program focused on the controversial forced removal of Poland's top Supreme Court judge and the show brought in expert and Polish academic Jerzy Targalski to discuss it on air.
All was going well with Jerzy effectively describing the crisis but then his cat, Lisio, crawled up his arm, onto his shoulders and wrapped his tail around Jerzy's face. That would have been enough to derail most people, but ever the professional, Jerzy kept talking as if there was no feline around his head.
The Polish historian & political scientist Jerzy Targalski remained completely unruffled during our interview when this happened👇🤨🤷♂️ pic.twitter.com/4dLi16Pq1H— Rudy Bouma (@rudybouma) July 7, 2018
While Jerzy deserves credit for his composure, in this day and age, many more interviews could use some of Lisio climbing on people.
