I’m A Romanian Comedian And Here’s What I Replied To Bernie Sanders’ Condescending Tweet

My name is Sergiu Floroaia and I’m a comedian from Bucharest, Romania. Yesterday, Bernie Sanders posted a tweet saying “Today, people living in Bucharest, Romania have access to much faster Internet than most of the US. That’s unacceptable and must change.”

Just as many other fellow Romanians, I felt the tweet was condescending and needed to be addressed. So here are my Twitter replies.

How does he know it’s so slow?

A reason to be jolly at Christmas.

We’re willing to help!

I’m sorry…

This one is almost perfect.

Ideology

On unacceptability.

Oh, elders on the internet… *rolling eyes*

A bad case of slow internet.

Big problems are big.

Slow connection

Is this fast enough?

Campaign objectives

First world problem

Writing an article about how good your jokes are supposed to be is pretty lame.

Come on man you just made this entry to celebrate your own jokes, not even one of them with a decent punchline. Talk about jerking yourself off... I think you should QUICKLY leave the INTERNET *pun intended*

At least he didn't say "Budapest". But seriously, get over it. Iohannis dissed me last July 4th, but I'm still glad he won. Having lived and paid for internet in both countries, I believe he's actually right: it IS unacceptable. It's not that the US has inferior technicians or technology, but monopolies and price-fixing, which are unacceptable. As for him losing, well, I imagine very few people who vote in US presidential elections were in any way bothered by this gaffe. We're looking at the potential election of a president who wants to build a wall on our southern border. Unintentional dismissal of Romania is not going to be the deciding factor. I'm not saying he won't lose, but it won't be because of this.

US has inferior cabling structure. While the internet came really fast in the US, in Romania it came really late so the best option was to use fiber link, compared to what the internet first had used cooper to transport the data. The thing is that the salaries in Romania are pretty low, so from a 250$ minimum on economy you pay around 15$ internet tax. The internet speed is the only thing Romania has good. But nothing else.
