The socialist politician of Tenerife Gustavo Matos has posted a comment on his profile on Sunday Facebook in which supports the humorist Dani Mateo, protagonist of a controversy by a sketch of his in The Intermediate in which it sounds with the flag of Spain.
"I am more represented by a comedian who tries to stir consciences than a legion of patriots whose idea of a country is that one in which there is no room for those who do not like them. @DaniMateoAgain".
This is the comment he wrote this Sunday afternoon.
Another joke of the program El Intermedio, La Sexta has generated numerous critics in the social networks, perhaps more than any other.

"What have I done, what have I done !?", says Mateo afterwards In the middle. "No, no, no, I did not want to offend anyone," she adds as she caresses and kisses the flag.
"He did not want to offend, not the Spaniards, not the king, much less the Chinese who sell these rags," he continues to retract again and ipso facto for using the word "rags".
Instantly, thousands of Internet users said they felt offended in social networks and criticized the mockery of the monologuista of the Red Roda Teaching.
Dani Mateo had to go to social networks to give his point of view. "The meaning of the sketch of the flag was – or so I understood – to show that, when tempers are very hot, flags become more important than people and that is dangerous," he writes in a tweet, to specify: " That's why I was falling apart when I realized that it had sounded in her, it was never an offense. "

Many opponents to the sketch of The intermediate -It's actually from the direction and scriptwriters of the show- they said that I was not able to do the same with an Islamic flag. The presenter is called everything: "insensitive", "clown", "unpatriotic" …
