France - Le Pen, Media Slam President Macron Over ‘Gangsta’-Selfie

Another week, another scandal for French President Macron apparently. The leader of France, desperate to get his tumbling approval rating back up, went together with his wife Brigitte to the Caribbean to visit the youngsters in the French part of Sint-Maarten, a trip some claimed was simply another vacation.

The youngsters apparently are big fans of Macron and all posed for selfies with the French president.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="fr" dir="ltr">« Tu dois te comporter comme il faut. Tu m’appelles pas Manu, tu m’appelles Monsieur le Président » <a href=";ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#Macron</a> <a href=""></a></p>&mdash; Valérie Boyer (@valerieboyer13) <a href="">September 30, 2018</a></blockquote>

By now, all those Instagram, Facebook and Twitter posts have reached France where one, in particular, has caused quite a scandal.

The French President, who could be seen addressing a youngster in Paris only a few months ago who had the audacity to address him as ‘Manu’ was posing with two youngsters who made, well, ‘gangster’ symbols. It was mostly the raised ‘fuck you’ finger on the left which is really a first for any picture with a French president.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="fr" dir="ltr">On ne trouve même plus de mots pour exprimer notre indignation.<br>La France ne mérite certainement pas cela. C’est impardonnable ! MLP <a href=""></a></p>&mdash; Marine Le Pen (@MLP_officiel) <a href="">September 30, 2018</a></blockquote>

His political rivals (as well as the French media) were quick to pounce on it.

Ms Valerie Boyer, who is an MP for the rightwing Les Républicains, reminded the President of what he had said to the 15-year old in Paris: “To dois the comporter comme il faut. Tu m’appele Monsieur Le Président, pas Manu.” (you have to show me some respect and behave as you should. You have to call me Mister President and not Manu).

Ms Marine Le Pen, his contender for the French Presidency during the 2017 elections, even went a step further, stating : “On ne trouve même plus de mots pour exprimer notre indignation.” (I cannot begin to find words to express my shock).

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr"><a href=";ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#France</a> New controversy on <a href=";ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#Macron</a>&#39;s presidential style after a selfie with youngsters in the West Indies… In an interview with JDD weekly, <a href=";ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#Macron</a> said he can&#39;t really change it, even though this unleashes violent criticism <a href=""></a></p>&mdash; Geraldine Amiel (@GeraldineAmiel) <a href="">October 1, 2018</a></blockquote>

Mr Macron’s presidential style has cost him a serious drop in the popularity polls as of late. His wife’s Brigitte’s spending habits, his bodyguard beating up protesters and he making fun of the French while abroad have all cost him dearly.

In the latest political polls, his eternal rival, rightwing Ms Marine Le Pen, has almost overtaken him.

Oil driller Macron

I think Macron is just looking for some flavored “duck butter”. With no moral compass, he will turn like a magnet to whatever metal is around. Another words, follower not leader describes him perfectly.
