France - 101-Year-Old Asks Merkel: “Are You Ms Macron?” (Video)

A heartwarming moment emerged from the Remembrance festivities which quickly went viral on French television. When French President Emmanuel Macron greeted several veterans, one of them had brought his mother with him, who is turning 101 tomorrow.

She was clearly star-struck at getting to meet the French President and said: “Mr. Macron, this is impossible. To see you and to shake the hand of the President of the Republic, an old lady like me, this is fantastic. You’re gonna make me cry.”

“Don’t make me cry, don’t make me cry.”

Her son, an army veteran, tells President Macron: “She will be 101 years old tomorrow.”

Macron states: “That’s unreal.”

The old lady then sees German Chancellor Merkel and says: “Are You Ms. Macron?”

Merkel answers: “No, I am the German Chancellor.”

The old lady replies: “Oh, this is impossible. What an extraordinary anniversary.”

She seems a bit confused and Merkel has to repeat a few times more that she really isn’t Ms. Macron, but the German Chancellor. Both European leaders then continue to take a picture with the woman.

In the end, she assured the French President: “I will certainly come back next year as well.”

The event took place during the Remembrance days in Paris and was clearly a lighter moment as the leaders honored the dead of World War One.

I always thought M. Macron was Mr. Merkel. Who knew that European Politics was so complicated?
