Nelson Mandela Fake Interpreter Steals Spotlight From World Leaders: Video

By Robert Paul Reyes

Thamsanqa Jantjie, the fake interpreter for the deaf at Nelson Mandela`s memorial, has faced charges of murder, kidnapping, rape, theft and breaking and entering.


The scholar, gentleman and outright fraud suffers from schizophrenia, and while he was "interpreting" at Mandela`s memorial service he hallucinated angels descending from heaven.

The only sign language I know is flipping the bird, but I could tell that this Flip Wilson lookalike  mental basket case was just flailing his arms and winging it.

It`s scary to think that this unhinged fraud was just inches away from powerful world leaders, including President Barack Obama.

Obviously this fake sign deaf sign-language interpreter didn`t belong on stage at the Mandela memorial service; he shouldn`t even have been allowed in to clean the portable toilets.

But I know the perfect job for this fraud: Sign language interpreter for C-SPAN. The C-SPAN network should mute the audio and let this charlatan do his thing. Congressmen and senators are full of crap, and nothing they say makes sense; a schizophrenic fraudulent deaf-sign language interpreter would be perfect for C-SPAN.
