Firstly, congratulations Monsieur Macron on winning the French elections!
Yep, there goes another celebrity President!
The French election is always exciting! I don’t like politics, but I like minding the French’s business! 🙂 Going into the big day when the French would choose their new leader, social media was abuzz with fierce intensity. Marine Le Pen put up a good fight, but in the end, it was not to be. Macron was elected in hopes of restoring the country to its former glory.
A lot of American celebrities were clearly delighted with the new President-elect:
You sure did, girl. You sure did. Wrote that wrong, that is.
I’ve tweeted some people’s thoughts from the Daily Mail about France’s new President and many of them were mixed.
^ A lot of people didn’t vote Le Pen because there is too much racism involved in her party. You can ask Zidane (yes, that former footballer, now coach at Real Madrid) if you don’t believe it.
^ Whenever I hear the name Emmanuel Macron, I automatically think of macarons!
^ Macron is 39 which means he has become France’s youngest ever President.
^ During the campaign, it was revealed that Macron, a former banker, had married his former Drama teacher, 64-year-old Brigitte Trogneux. Le scandale! He was 15 when he met the married mother of 3. She was 24 years his senior. He embarked on an affair with her when he turned 16? Or was it 17? Or maybe it was 18? Is there a biography of sorts on this man’s life? I want to read it.
^ First Lady at 64! Brigitte will work for free in her husband’s government to plan new education reforms. Yes, girl, serve! Once a teacher, always a teacher! Her main focus is concentrating on “work for autistic and disadvantaged kids, out of the political firing line.”
^ Mme Le Pen was gracious in defeat. She congratulated Macron and even danced the night away to ‘I Love Rock and Roll’ and ‘YMCA’. She got some sweet moves!
^ Macron is pro-EU. When he appeared in front of his supporters, the EU anthem was sounded, rather than “La Marseillaise”. Hmm, why am I getting Tony Blair vibes from Macron?
^ And let the male sexual objectification begin! No, seriously. Twitter exploded with a debate over who is the ‘sexiest G7 leader’: Canadian PM Justin Trudeau or newly elected French President, Monsieur Macron. As far as I am concerned, they’re both French, celebrities and good looking. Trudeau is often referred to as a Tom Cruise look-alike… when he smiles. Strange enough, the first time I saw Mr. Trudeau, I was like, ‘Oh, Tom Cruise has finally cloned himself!’ Then it wore off.
Canadian PM and French Pres:
^ Macron has inherited a divided France. Let’s see how he plans to unite the country.
Vive la France! I hope that you’re pleased with your decision. 🙂
