President Sebastian Pinera is being blasted for telling what one opponent called a 'prehistoric and sexist' joke at a leaders' conference in Mexico.
Pinera said: "Do you know the difference between a politician and a lady? When a politician says 'yes', he means 'maybe'. When he says 'maybe' he means 'no'. If he says 'no', he's not a politician.
When a lady says 'no', she means 'maybe', when she says 'maybe', she means 'yes'...and if she says 'yes'...she is not a lady."
