Egyptian TV host Azza Elhennawy directed harsh criticism at Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi on the March 6 episode of her Al-Qahera TV talk show. Elhennway said that Al-Sisi has not been doing any work, and she compared his rhetoric to that of Hitler. In response, various Egyptian TV hosts went on the attack, with some of them focusing on Elhennawy's weight. Assema TV's Azmi Mogahed said that she reminded him of a sumo champion, and Al-Hayat TV's Tamer Amin said that only on radio, but not on TV, could hosts look like elephant seals.
