Port Said Governor: E7na warak ya rayess. Sisi: Ana 3ayzak 2oddammy. Awkward laughter echoes throughout social media.
Social media has been in a state of frenzy after a video of President Abdel Fattah El-Sisi, during his visit to Port Said, started circulating yesterday. The video is from a conference that was held as part of the visit, and in the video, Port Said Governor Adel El-Ghadban shouts out to El-Sisi: "E7na warak ya rayes!" (We are with you, President) to which El-Sisi responded: "Ana 3ayzak odamy" (I want you in front of me). Awkward.
It didn't pass lightly, and, in no time, Egyptians took to social media, throwing one of their typical roast session. Since then it's been a slew of mocking comments all over the place:
اول رئيس حمدي الوزير منتخب https://t.co/IE2RvKR50I— Mohamed Ibrahim Amer (@mobTaKr) December 28, 2016
The first Hamdy El-Wazeer (rape symbol in Egyptian cinema) president.

السيسى واخد الشعب كله قدامه مش محافظ بورسعيد بس ... فاجر وقادر 😂😂
It's not just the Port Said governor who has been taken in front of Sisi, the entire population has.
محافظ بورسعيد : احنا وراك يا ريس— ehab elsaket (@Toky0u) December 28, 2016
السيسي : أنا عايزك قدامي
أول رئيس شمال منتخب
The first pervy president.
The gaffe is already joining the ranks of other famous Sisi blunders that made it into daily Egyptian vernacular, like Maysa7esh keda (that's not right) and the classic ento msh 3arfeen enokom noor 3enena wala eh (don't you know you're the light of our eyes?).
