Berlusconi Goes Off On Heckler (VIDEO)

Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi abruptly called off a news conference Wednesday after he was repeatedly heckled by a man who was reportedly a freelance journalist.

Before ending the news conference the Italian leader did, however, make sure to get in a good parting shot by telling the heckler: "You are not only making yourself look rude, but also ridiculous. I can understand why you are so angry because every morning when you go and look at yourself in the mirror and you see yourself, you have already ruined your day. "

At the end of the clip you can see Berlusconi's defense minister grabbing the man by his coat in a attempt to eject him.
