Akkar MP Walid Baarini said Monday that he had not meant to hint at sexual intercourse when he invited a senior female employee at Al Jadeed news channel to "try my manhood".While the remarks were widely denounced on social media as sexist, Baarini told The Daily Star that they had been misinterpreted. In a tweet last month, Bassam criticized a Future Movement statement read out by Baarani at a news conference that blasted Wahhab.A number of TV presenters rallied around Bassam on social media, lambasting Baarini's comments.
