"Keep them (to the gais) far of me. I am normalísimo", signals in pejorative tone, affirming also in the same tone that does not have at all against of the Jewish, but that it is better "to have them watched". "I do not have at all against of the Jewish, am the first in supporting them (...)".

But it is better to have them watched", can listen in the recording, in which they can hear also the laughs of the journalist. After the publication of the statements, Tavecchio ensures to have been victim of "a blackmail" by part of the reporter.

Here, instead, it arrives a 'Opti Poba' that before ate bananas and now plays to title in the Lazio".
