Make no mistake: Emmanuel Macron is a piece of shit.
However, he is so incompetent, he isn’t even good at being a piece of shit. Every once in a while he goes totally off-script and holds Donald Trump’s hand for a really long time, says that we have to stop Africans from breeding, or praises a Nazi hero.
French President Emmanuel Macron waded into controversy Wednesday by praising a general who helped win World War I but became a top Nazi collaborator in World War II — comments that triggered outrage among French Jews.
Marshal Philippe Petain’s name appears alongside seven other top military chiefs to be honored this Saturday in a ceremony at the Invalides monument, site of Napoleon’s tomb, to mark the centenary of the end of World War I.
Touring battlefields ahead of a formal commemoration of the Nov. 11, 1918, armistice that ended the war, Macron said Petain was worthy of the honor for his leading role in the World War I victory.
“Marshal Petain was also a great soldier during World War I” even though he made “fatal choices during the Second World War,” Macron said in the northern town of Charleville-Mezieres.
The stop was part of a weeklong tour that included Verdun, which Petain defended against a German onslaught.
Petain led the French army to victory in Verdun in 1916, but gained infamy and a conviction for treason for his actions as leader of Vichy France from 1940 to 1944. He is despised for his complicity in the Holocaust.
“I pardon nothing, but I erase nothing of our history,” Macron added.
The French presidency later said that only the five top military chiefs who are interred in the Invalides will be individually honored and have their names cited in the ceremony — not including Petain.
This isn’t even cucking.
He is just correcting something he was confused about.
He is really not a competent person. He was shoved in to beat Le Pen when the other guy collapsed under a mountain of corruption and various scandals, and now somehow the goofy bastard has become the leader of Europe.
And he’s using his position as leader of Europe to call to raise an army to fight both America and Russia.
I say just let this guy go. He’s certainly not hurting any of my agendas with his wackiness.
