Varoufakis Not The Best Looking Greek In The World?

After I listened to this interview, I wondered why Yanis Varoufakis would have made such downgrading remarks about President Obama's visit to Greece. And I think I found the explanation.

Back in 2015, Varoufakis attended a White House reception in honor of Greek Independence Day. When Barack Obama was in conversation with Yanis Varoufakis, John Ramos, the handsome Greek-American entrepreneur, was the third person in the group. Stamos later told Jimmy Fallon on the latter's show about the meeting (see link). After making the comment that Obama was talking to 'that guy, the Finance Minister, Yanis, Yani...?' (couldn't remember the name), Stamos said:

"He (Obama) looks to me and he says 'John Stamos, how are you?' And then he looks to the room and says 'This is the best looking Greek in the world!'"

That, indeed, must have hurt to hear the most powerful man in the world call someone else the best looking Greek in one's presence! Hurt real bad!


  1. Stamos looks and brains do not much. He maybe good looking but he has zero charisma of any kind.

    Varoufakis is not the best looking Greek by any measurement. Maybe for some german desperate wives but nothing further than this.
