Dorling Kindersley RF(MONTEVIDEO, Uruguay) — President José Mujica of Uruguay is in hot water after he was overheard on an open mic making disparaging remarks about Arentinian President Cristina de Kircher.

Mujica called de Kirchner an old hag, and described her late husband, who she succeeded, as a cross eyed man.

Argentina has made a formal protest, though Mujica has failed to issue an apology and denies that he was talking about the Kirchners. He has not, however, offered an explanation as to who he was referring to if that is the case.
