INDUSTRY.co.id - Padang - President Joko Widodo again shook the stomach of the audience who listened to him make a speech. This time it happened in the middle of peak event of National Press Day (HPN) 2018, at Cimpago Lake Pantai Padang, West Sumatera, Friday (9/2/2018).

As usual, Jokowi summoned one of the audiences to get onstage with him. Because it coincides with Press Day, this time the invitation to the stage only applies to journalists.

Previously, Jokowi admitted during this often difficult to serve the reporters who interviewed the "doorstop" or intercepted the steps of the source and then scatter him with many questions.

Therefore, he now wants "revenge". Jokowi also pointed to one of the journalists who are willing to go forward. From the stage, the reporter introduced his name Yousri Nur Raja Agam. He claimed to have been 40 years as a journalist.

Jokowi started "prank" Yousri by inviting him to exchange roles.

"Father became president, I became a journalist," said Jokowi. Then, pretending to be a journalist, Jokowi asks Yousri a question. The first question, which minister is the most important "president".

"You have minister 34, which minister do you think is the most important thing?" asked Jokowi.

"Actually it's all important, but the most important minister can make his president comfortable," Yousri replied.

"So the most important is which one?" To the point, sir, do not muter-muter, I cannot write, yet can catch, "Jokowi cecar.

"The minister who handles the reporters," Yousri replied. The point is Minister of Communications and Informatics.

Then Jokowi continues into the second question. Jokowi said it was sometimes annoyed, sometimes annoyed with easy reporters' questions early on but it was getting harder in the middle of the interview.

Therefore, still pretending to be a journalist, Jokowi asks Yousri.

"Which media is the most annoying to you?" asked Jokowi greeted by laughter of the audience. Hearing the question, Yousri clumsily. He initially answered "junky media". But Jokowi immediately denied.

"In the palace, the media abal-abal baseball exist, all official media," said Jokowi.

"Tell me what it is that pack, whether TV, online, whether the print media, which you are interviewed every day in the palace, you know what journalists and what media," added Jokowi.

Yousri also spontaneously replied, "The most memorized, the most annoying is the People's Liberation". Hearing Yousri's answer, Jokowi immediately laughs loudly.

"Mr. President is outspoken as I feel, just the same," said Jokowi while laughing giggly.

Then Jokowi asked why the People's Freedom became the most annoying media.

"If the people are free, the leaders are hard, too independent, everything is regarded as independent, whereas there is a rule of independence itself," Yousri said.

No power to restrain laughter, Jokowi also ended his work Yousri. As usual, he told Yousri to take the bike as a welcome gift.
