French presidency is a joke

Macron became the world champion in presidency photoshooting. I just have no word for this.

For the last picture, as TheLocal.fr says:

In the photo taken on Sunday, Emmanuel Macron is seen between two bare-chested young men wearing bandanas on their heads. One of them is givingw the middle finger to the camera.

The shot was taken during the president’s visit to Saint Martin, a year after a hurricane devastated the French Caribbean island. Macron, followed by a host of photographers, was walking through the streets, meeting locals and talking to them about how they are rebuilding their lives after the tragedy.

When heavy rain started battering down, the president unexpectedly decided to take shelter in a block of social housing flats.

This could have been a good opportunity for Macron, who is struggling to shed his reputation as an arrogant leader removed from his people, to prove his critics wrong.

He met a family, and one man told him he had just come out of prison. In a firm manner which the president has been criticised for using lately in his interactions with the public, he told the former convict not to repeat the same mistakes.

“Don’t make any more mistakes, will you? Your mother deserves more than this. Stop messing around, think of your mother. Now go and rebuild the island,” Macron told the former convict and hugged him afterwards, which left the young man’s mother in tears.

What a president!
