Default France's Macron slapped in the face while greeting crowd

If somebody did this to Trump, they'd immediately become a CNN anchor or Democrat frontrunner...

France's Macron slapped in the face while greeting crowd


Quote:
French President Emmanuel Macron was slapped in the face while greeting a crowd in southeast France on Tuesday, in a shock incident he shrugged off as "isolated" but which drew widespread condemnation in a tense political climate.

Video footage on social media shows Macron shaking hands with voters when a man in a green t-shirt takes hold of his forearm and slaps him.

Someone can be heard in the video shouting an old French royalist battle cry, and "Down with Macronism".

Macron's bodyguards quickly intervened and two people were detained after the incident in the village of Tain l'Hermitage, local officials said.

Two 28-year-old men living in the region are being questioned, said local prosecutor Alex Perrin. But "at this stage of questioning, their motives remain unknown".
Because "racism" would be the media's guess...

Default Re: France's Macron slapped in the face while greeting crowd

I saw that and the French weren't calling it a slap but an incident or something. At least in America we call a spade a spade. Like Giuliani's cheap hair color all running down his face and Biden saying the wrong word, Trump's false teeth...
