Macron says he will govern like a Roman God


Quel un garçon folle!

Summoning 1,000 politicians from both houses of the French parliament to a rare Congress at the palace of Louis XIV in Versailles, French president Emmanuel Macron declared he will govern France like Jupiter, the Roman king of the gods.

images-1Before an assembly usually reserved for a national crisis, the 39-year-old novice used the occasion to warn legislators not to try and block the “reforms” he intends to implement.

Macron said he intends to reign like a remote, dignified figure, like the Roman god of gods, who weighs his rare pronouncements carefully.

When he eschewed a press conference, a spokesman informed the media that his thought process was “too complex” for journalists to understand.

Macron strives to be a tough guy after being ridiculed as an ineffectual stooge when he served as economy minister in president François Hollande’s cabinet. He has also been called a lap dog of German chancellor Merkel.

As his election rival Marine Le Pen said during a debate, “You are the heir of François Hollande. We now call you Baby Hollande!”Unknown

Whatever the outcome of the election, she added, “France will be led by a woman: either me or Mrs. Merkel.”

Macron’s natural submissiveness speaks to his marriage to his 64-year-old former school teacher, whom Italy’s former playboy-president Silvio Berlusconi described as the young lad’s good-looking mother.

Macron’s imperious arrogance was shaken when he met President Trump in Europe and visibly grimaced when the 70-year-old Trump gripped him for several seconds in one of his bone-crushing power handshakes. Touché!
