The president of France, I mean. You know, that guy who the left absolutely adores because he beat one of those icky nationalistic deplorables?
Macron himself has said he plans a “Jupiterian” presidency – as a remote, dignified figure, like the Roman god of gods, who weighs his rare pronouncements carefully.
And all this time, I just thought he had an Oedipus Complex.
President Jupiter also says that he is too intelligent to talk to mere mortals.
Explaining why he would not be speaking to reporters, an Elysee source told Le Monde that while the French president does not “balk” at the thought of talking to journalists, his “complex thought process” didn’t lend itself to interviews with journalists.
To the extent he is saying that journalists are stupid, the last 48 hours at CNN may indicate he has a point.
