Markus Söder shares a gift he received on Instagram and X. There are a lot of derisive comments for the post.
Munich - On X (Twitter) and Instagram, Markus Söder regularly lets his followers participate not only in his work as Prime Minister of Bavaria and CSU leader. He has also established the hashtag "Söder eats" and regularly shows what ends up on his plate. Now he shared a gift he received on social media - and which is already making waves after just a few minutes.

Söder is happy about paintings - and criticizes the traffic light
"Great gift from DEHOGA Bavaria: 'Captain Bavaria' by the artist Damir Corell. Thank you very much!", Söder is enthusiastic and assures: "The Bavarian state government is on the side of our gastronomy. The increase in the gastro tax due to the traffic lights is a serious mistake." This is because it harms companies and thus destroys jobs and livelihoods. In order to relieve people and companies in times of crisis, a reduction in the tax on basic foodstuffs is needed and, in the catering industry, a permanent reduction in VAT on beverages is needed.
"Can I sue you for damages?" Söder-Post irritates
But the content of the post is only a topic for a few readers. "Markus fantasizes about taxes that don't even exist. Is the gastro tax in our room right now?" one person asks. Background: The tax has been reduced for a limited period of time, so there can be no talk of an increase in the eyes of many.
For most of them, however, the focus is on the painting anyway. "This is no longer satire. I'd also like to criticize the content, but I can't get out of the mixture of laughing and choking so quickly," reads a comment on Twitter. "Uuuuh he's embarrassing again," it also reads.
"Can I actually sue you for compensation for pain and suffering if my teeth fall out of my face with so much shame from others?" asks another person. "The cult of personality is only appropriate for St. Nicholas," writes one woman in keeping with the 6th of December.

Gift for Bavaria's Prime Minister: Söder photo polarizes
- "Boy! I want to have a deduction from that. I'm going to tell my children that he was our king!"
- "I'm going to blow myself away!"
- "This is something for the bedroom or the guest toilet."
- "German Captain America."
- "When will the emperor be crowned?"
- "The last thing the American flag sees is when Mark departs it on the moon."
But not everyone goes down badly with the gift: "Looks mega cool," writes one woman, for example. Another person says: "A great picture." After less than 30 minutes, the Söder post has already collected almost 3000 likes on Instagram (came)
