Reminds me of another firebrand….
Oriana Fallaci started off her interview with the then Ayatollah Khomeini in a chador, she then ripped it off to his amazement, and laughter.

‘I will not cover myself up’ Marine Le Pen REFUSES to wear headscarf for Grand Mufti talks
FIREBRAND French right-wing leader Marine Le Pen has pulled out of a meeting with Lebanon’s Grand Mufti after refusing to wear a headscarf.
The controversial presidential hopeful was in Lebanon seeking to bolster support ahead of the first round of voting in April.
But the proposed meeting with the Grand Mufti Sheikh Abdul-Latif Derian – the most prominent Sunni Muslim cleric in the country – was scrapped at the last minute.
Ms Le Pen said: “You can pass on my respects to the Grand Mufti, but I will not cover myself up.
“I have met before with Grand Imam Sheikh al-Azhar in Egypt without wearing a veil.”
