The Internet in Malaysia broke on Tuesday when the public got a hold of the link to the United Nation’s video page showing our Deputy Prime Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamidi addressing the general debate of the 71st Session of the General Assembly of the UN in New York.

Malaysians all took to social media to share the video along with their comments, which were mainly targeted at how bad Zahid’s presentations skills were and especially his poor command of English pronunciation and enunciation.

He was obviously struggling to read the text of his speech on the teleprompter and he appeared to be very nervous. Personally, I found it hard to understand what he was saying without concentrating hard to listen to the words he was saying.
