Más de 1.000 asistentes al evento… ¿Serán todos de “La Cámpola” y vinieron sólo por el aloz y el petlóleo? …
— Cristina Kirchner (@CFKArgentina) February 4, 2015
"More than 1000 people attending the event, are they all from "La Cámpola" and did they just come for the lice and petloleum?"
The comment was meant as a comeback to criticism that she packs events with her own supporters — but the point she was trying to make was somehow completely obliterated by the fact she thinks Chinese people talk funny.
This, obviously, is far from being CFK's first slip — she's become somewhat of a pro in the ancient art of inappropriate zingers and WTF remarks, and could easily take on the mantle left by the slowly quieting Silvio Berlusconi.
It's not clear where this latest one fits in the rankings of Kirchner blunders and awkward comments, but here are ten more from the past:
#10. PARANOID, MUCH?
We start with this impressive, completely uncensored, 28 tweet- and 30 minute-long rant, in which Kirchner vented all her frustrations about the International Monetary Fund (IMF, or FMI in Spanish), back in February 2013.
FMI+FBI contra Argentina. No se asusten, el FBI son los Fondos Buitres Internacionales.

"FMI+FBI against Argentina. Dont be scared, the FBI is the International Vulture Fund."
#9. WISHFUL THINKING
“If I were a genie I’d make some people disappear.” A bewitching threat from CFK back in January 2010.
