The opposition presidential candidate and Warsaw mayor Rafał Trzaskowski’s behaviour at a Warsaw night club was recorded and has gone viral on the net. The politician demanded a DJ change the music at the night club and “pulled rank” by saying it was “his city”.
A recording showing Warsaw mayor Rafał Trzaskowski demanding that a DJ changes the music at a nightclub has produced an avalanche of comments. The Civic Platform’s candidate for President was attending a birthday party of one of his friends which was organised in a fashionable club on the banks of the river Vistula.
According to the gossip portal pudelek.pl, at around 1 am on Saturday night all eyes at the club were focused on Mr Trzaskowski as he attempted to intervene with the DJs about the music they were playing. The recording shows how the Warsaw Mayor attempts to persuade the DJs to “play something to dance to. During the exchange, Trzaskowski says that it’s “my city” and attempts to negotiate a change of music.
The DJs reacted telling Mr Trzaskowski and his friends that it was not the club’s policy to play requests by guests. They also remarked that the mayor and his group needed to be wearing face masks to be able to dance
Former Warsaw mayoral candidate Jan Śpiewak mocked Mr Trzaskowski saying that he was using his authority to change music in a nightclub rather than dealing with climate change, smog or lack of affordable housing.
Mayor Trzaskowski made light of the whole matter with a social media post showing Hugh Grant in the dance scene of “Love Actually”. In the scene, Hugh Grant who plays a British PM is caught by one of his members of staff dancing in 10 Downing Street.
