Argentine economy minister's discomfort with inflation questions becomes talk of Twitter

(AP) — Argentina's economy minister is the talk of Twitter in the South American country after a video shot by a Greek television crew became public.

Hernan Lorenzino was recorded repeatedly declining to answer questions about Argentina's real inflation rate.

He says he doesn't know and tries to cut off the interview, saying "I want to leave." Then he says that Argentina's inflation is too complex to talk about deeply.

A video of the interview surfaced this week, and Argentines can't get enough of it. On Twitter, the hashtag (hash)mequieroir ((hash)iwanttoleave) was generating among the most comments Thursday, and video of the visibly uncomfortable minister played repeatedly on the news stations that aren't aligned with the government.
