Mariano Rajoy Allowed No-Confidence Vote After Losing Odds Out of 7 to Pedro Sánchez

Funny story written by Thomas Coughlin

Saturday, 2 June 2018

Mariano Rajoy has been ousted as prime minister of Spain by the first successful no-confidence motion in the country's four decades of democracy. The vote was led by Socialist party leader Pedro Sánchez, who was sworn in as Spain's new prime minister on Saturday.

Even worse for Mr. Rajoy, Mr. Sánchez only put forward the vote after consulting the former prime minister.

Sánchez reportedly asked Rajoy, "Yo, what are the odds I start a no-confidence vote against you and your party?"

Rajoy, 63, known for wanting to be cool with the kids, surprised Sánchez by responding with "7," a relatively low number.

That decision immediately backfired when, at the count of three, both world leaders at the same time said "4."

After a moment of realization, Sánchez reportedly said "oh mierda," to which Rajoy responded "bruh."

The funny story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
