Armin Laschet messes with journalist because of critical question: “That’s stupid!”
CDU candidate for chancellor Armin Laschet has to throw everything in the pan again: Almost two weeks before the general election Armin Laschet clearly behind SPD competitor Olaf Scholz in the polls.

Armin Laschet gets angry in a radio interview when the presenter asks THIS question
At “Deutschland3000 – a good hour with Eva Schulz” arose Armin Laschet on Monday the questions from the moderator and the listeners.
The topic also comes down to the sometimes faltering digitization in Germany. Journalist Eva Schulz would like to know about the CDU top candidate: “The Union has been ruling this country for 16 years. And now you come and you have to explain again, why are you the best to really kick the digitization in Germany forward now? “
This is Armin Laschet:
- The 61-year-old is a candidate for chancellor from the CDU and CSU.
- He is 1.72 meters tall – Merkel comes to 1.65 meters.
- Laschet is said to be a direct descendant of Charlemagne.
- He has been Prime Minister of North Rhine-Westphalia since 2017, and CDU Federal Chairman since 2021
- Armin Laschet lives in Aachen and has three adult children with his wife Susanne (two sons and a daughter)
“But that is also, dear Ms. Schulz, a somewhat too clumsy argument ‘for 16 years’. Do you know what was 16 years ago? Netflix was still sending DVDs for its customers. You can’t say now why the federal government wasn’t actually 16 years ago … “
Eva Schulz does not agree to the comparison, interrupts Armin Laschet: “So you say we will be as digital as we could in 2020/2021?” The candidate for chancellor admits: “No, of course not. But the 16 years are a stupid argument because the 16 years had very different phases. “
In addition, the government has “done a lot”, defends the CDU chairman. “We can’t talk our country so badly now that we are not digitized,” he says indignantly. “Only we have to find out today that we have to get better.” A lot has been done, “but we still have faxes” – they have to be banned from offices.
