All hail the president of everybody, Sepp Blatter!
It is my congress, I have the right to make the closing remarks. This is a very important congress. You see I am in a good mood. I was a little bit nervous today, but now I am the president of everybody, I am the president of the whole Fifa.
Twitter immediately reacted to the statement "I am the president of everybody" — which, to be fair, is being taken out of the context of his larger statement. Blatter's remarks, though, are reflective of a growing sense that FIFA — and perhaps its leader — is simply above accountability even in its corruption or bribery.
Yes, Sepp Blatter really did just say: "But I am now the president of everybody." pic.twitter.com/nzp3JAz0mW— Elana Zak (@elanazak) May 29, 2015

"I am now the president of everybody" sounds like something Dr. Doom or Darkseid would say, to be honest. But no, head of FIFA— Evan (@GiantTourtiere) May 29, 2015
