Politician recites bestiality poem about Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan in German parliament

Detlef Seif has become an unlikely internet sensation as his attempt to defend his boss backfired

From the article:
A German politician has ignited a diplomatic row between his country and Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan by reading out a poem suggesting he likes fornicating with goats.
Detlef Seif, a backbench member of Chancellor Angela Merkel’s Christian Democratic Party, quoted extensively from the controversial poem which also implies Mr Erdogan enjoys child porn, kicking Kurdish people and attacking Christians in his spare time. 
When the poem was first performed by German comedian Jan Böhmermann in April it sparked a diplomatic row between Ankara and Berlin as Mr Erdogan’s demanded he be arrested under the terms of an out-of-date German law which forbids insulting foreign leaders. 

Ms Merkel gave in to the demand and the comedian is now facing prosecution and up to five years in prison.

But far from sticking up for freedom of speech, Mr Seif was actually attacking the poem in the German Bundestag and trying to defend his party leader by demonstrating it lacked satirical merit. 
Unfortunately for him, the proceedings were recorded live on camera so he soon became an internet sensation when Mr Böhmermann uploaded the footage to his YouTube channelThe Local reported
