    French President Emmanuel Macron on Friday defended his rude remarks about the country's minority of vaccine refusers, saying he cannot accept them infringing on others’ freedom. The 44-year-old outspoken president, who is expected to seek re-election later this year, made headlines earlier this week by using the word "emmerder" — rooted in the French word for "crap" and meaning to rile or to bug. He was talking about his strategy for pressuring vaccine refusers to get coronavirus jabs. His vulgar language dominated news broadcasts and provoked angry reactions from his political rivals.

(AP Photo/Michel Euler, Pool) Speaking in a news conference in Paris, Macron acknowledged the term may have upset some, but said he takes full responsibility for it. "When some make from their freedom ... a motto, not only do they put others’ lives at risk, but they are also curtailing others' freedom....
    The BBC also said Macron "used the vulgar term 'emmerder' to say how he wanted to stir up the unvaccinated." The expression is from the word "merde" (s**t) that can be translated as "to get on their nerves" and is considered "very informal" by the French dictionary Larousse — and its use elicited criticism from Macron's rivals, Reuters reported. 'A president shouldn't say that' "A president shouldn't say that," conservative leader Marine Le Pen said on Twitter, according to Reuters. "Emmanuel Macron is unworthy of his office." Republicans candidate Valérie Pécresse said she was incensed that Macron accused unvaccinated people of not being citizens, BBC News said, citing CNews: "You have to accept them as they are — lead them, bring them together, and not insult them." Another conservative, Bruno Retailleau, told BBC News that "Emmanuel Macron says he has learned to love the French, but it seems he especially likes to despise them." Reuters said Macron previously has been chastened for off-the-cuff remarks which many in France said were arrogant, cutting, or...
    Lionel Bonaventure/Getty Images French President Emmanuel Macron said Tuesday he wanted to “piss off” unvaccinated citizens of his country in an effort to pressure them into getting the shot. “I really want to piss them off, and we’ll carry on doing this to the end,” Macron said in remarks to Le Parisien. “I’m not going to put them in prison. I’m not going to vaccinate them by force. So we need to tell them, from Jan. 15, you will no longer be able to go to the restaurant. You will no longer be able to go for a coffee, you will no longer be able to go to the theatre. You will no longer be able to go to the cinema.” (Translation according to The New York Times.) France’s Parliament is considering legislation that would would prevent citizens from obtaining a “health pass” allowing them to enter public spaces — such as restaurants — with negative Covid-19 tests alone. Instead, they would need to provide proof of vaccination. The proposal follows the country’s Saturday announcement that even children aged 6-11...
    French President Emmanuel Macron came under fire Wednesday after he suggested the unvaccinated are “no longer” citizens. “The unvaccinated, I really want to annoy them,” Macron said in a Tuesday interview with newspaper Le Parisien, according to the Wall Street Journal (WSJ). Macron reportedly used the phrase emmerder, which is a vulgar term for “piss off.” “They undermine the solidity of a nation. When my freedom threatens that of others, I become irresponsible. An irresponsible person is no longer a citizen.” Macron’s comments came as French lawmakers debated legislation sought by Macron’s administration that would require individuals be fully vaccinated in order to enter restaurants, gyms and other arenas while taking away the option for unvaccinated people to provide proof of a negative test taken within 24 hours, according to the report. “I won’t send [unvaccinated people] to prison,” Macron said during his interview regarding France’s roughly five million unvaccinated residents, according to BBC. “So we need to tell them, from 15 January, you will no longer be able to go to the restaurant. You will no longer be able to...
    The president of France plans not to let the unvaccinated eat cake in the near future unless they get the COVID-19 vaccine. President Emmanuel Macron said in an interview on Tuesday that he wants to "piss off" unvaccinated people to encourage them to get the COVID-19 vaccine. Beginning Jan. 15, he said those who are unvaccinated could not go to restaurants, coffee shops, bars, or theaters, according to Reuters. "The unvaccinated, I really want to piss them off," Macron told the outlet. "And so, we're going to continue doing so until the end. That's the strategy." FRANCE THREATENS TO BLOCK FIVE PORNOGRAPHY WEBSITES UNLESS THEY ENFORCE AGE VERIFICATION RESTRICTIONS France implemented a health pass in 2021 that prevents people without a PCR test or proof of vaccination from entering restaurants, cafes, and other venues. Macron said he would not send the unvaccinated to prison, the outlet reported. Marine Le Pen, a French lawyer and politician, criticized Macron's statement, calling the French president "unworthy of his office" on social media. Un Président ne devrait...
    French President Emmanuel Macron faced significant criticism for his comments claiming that he would like to "piss off" unvaccinated individuals.  Macron spoke candidly during an interview with French newspaper Le Parisien, during which he said that he wanted to make life difficult for individuals who have not received a COVID-19 vaccine. The French "sanitary pass" has prompted a number of protests and stiff opposition while the country nears 75% full vaccination.  French President Emmanuel Macron thumbs up as he welcomes Latvian Prime Minister Krisjanis Karins (L) prior to their meeting at the Elysee Presidential Palace on December 01, 2021 in Paris, France .   (Chesnot/Getty Images) "I really want to piss them off, and we'll carry on doing this - to the end," Macron said three months ahead of a presidential election.

    President Joe Biden met with French President Emmanuel Macron on Friday, admitting he was unaware he upset the French while making a submarine deal with Australia in September. “I was under the impression that France had been informed long before … honest to God I did not know you had not been,” Biden admitted to Macron during the meeting which took place in Rome ahead of the G-20 summit. At the time, NATO ally France was furious that the United States joined with the UK and made a deal with Australia in September to provide them with nuclear submarines, which prompted Australia to cancel their deal with the French. Even more insulting to the French, was they found out about the deal from the press, not from the Americans or the Australians much less the UK. President Biden was conciliatory during the meeting with Macron.

    President Joe Biden and French President Emmanuel Macron smiled for the press before their meeting on the sidelines of the G-20 summit in Italy, a photo opportunity intended to put more than a month of diplomatic tensions behind them. The leaders' conversation at the French Embassy to the Holy See in Rome was their first in-person discussion since Macron recalled his country's top envoy to the United States for the first time in more than a century. That decision came in response to Biden's announcement of a new national security alliance with the United Kingdom and Australia. BIDEN HOPES HIS SHRUNKEN SPENDING FRAMEWORK IS A BIG ENOUGH DEAL “What we did was clumsy. It was not done with a lot of grace,” Biden said later Friday beside Macron inside the building. “I had been under the impression long before that France had been informed.” National security adviser Jake Sullivan told reporters flying with the president on Air Force One the Macron meeting would "cover the waterfront in terms of issues facing the U.S.-France alliance." That includes "counterterrorism in the...
    President Joe Biden on Friday admitted the submarine deal with Australia was handled 'clumsy' and 'without grace' as he held his first sit down with President Emmanuel Macron since French fury over the AUKUS pact. The two men waved for the cameras when Biden arrived at the French Embassy in Rome. They smiled, wrapped their arms around each other and grasped hands as they showed their relationship is being repaired after France accused the U.S. of stabbing them in the back for agreeing to sell nuclear subs to Australia, resulting in Paris losing out on $90 billion deal of its own. 'I want to be clear: France is an extremely valuable partner,' Biden said.  He shrugged off a question if he needed to apologize to Macron, saying they 'already talked' but he did offer concessions ahead of their meeting.  'I was under the impression that France had been informed long before that the deal was not coming through,' he says of thwarted submarine deal that caused so much French fury that Paris recalled its ambassadors to the United States and Australia. ...
    President Joe Biden will host a kumbaya meeting with President of France Emmanuel Macron on Friday as part of his make-up campaign following French fury over a U.S. submarine deal with Australia. The two leaders will meet at the Villa Bonaparte, the French embassy to the Vatican situated in the heart of Rome. Their sit down comes ahead of their attendance at the G20 summit this weekend. The Villa was originally the home of Napoleon Bonaparte's sister Pauline, who had a bathtub carved out of the marble installed so she could bath in donkey milk, which she believed would help keep her looking young. It became an embassy in 1945. Biden held two phone calls with Macron in the lead up to Friday afternoon's meeting, which could be one of his more awkward sit downs in his five-day Europe trip. It is the two men's first in-person meeting since the submarine deal with Australia was announced. The White House is making an all out effort to emphasis the importance of its relationship with France, the United States' oldest diplomatic ally.  Jill...

    A  new biography has shed light on the very intense bond between French president Emmanuel Macron and his wife Brigitte.  French journalist Gaël Tchakaloff, 49, who has been friends with the Macrons since 2016, followed them closely for a year and a half before penning Tant Qu'on Est Tous les Deux (As Long as We're Together), a biography which was published in France last week.  The book, which was not formally authorised but includes quotes from Brigitte Macron, 68, herself, as well as associates of the French president, 43, and his wife, portrays the couple as a close-knit unit who scarcely do anything without the other knowing.  Tchakaloff, who said in the book she was 'fascinated' by the Macron love story, revealed the French president calls his wife every hour and a half. Meanwhile, anonymous sources close to the couple opened to Tchakaloff about Emmanuel and Brigitte's bond, with one calling the First Lady 'dedicated to her husband's success,' and reminiscing about their very ostentatious public displays of affections in the early days of their romance, when Macron was at...

    French President Emmanuel Macron lectured President Joe Biden on the “moral responsibility” their two nations owed to Afghanistan during a call with the president on Thursday. A readout of the call released by the French included a pointed note of Macron’s message to Biden. “The head of state emphasized our collective moral responsibility toward the Afghan men and women who need our protection and who share our values,” it read. “We cannot abandon them.” The United States readout of the call did not include similar rhetoric, noting that both leaders “underscored the importance of continued close coordination among allies and democratic partners on Afghanistan,” and the importance of “humanitarian assistance and support for refugees.” A Taliban fighter stands guard at a checkpoint in the Wazir Akbar Khan neighborhood in the city of Kabul, Afghanistan, Sunday, Aug. 22, 2021.

    More On: emmanuel macron French rush to get vaccinated after president’s warning French Senate blocks referendum on climate change Letters to the Editor — June 17, 2021 Biden’s G-7 gaffe sparks laughter from world leaders French President Emmanuel Macron has reportedly changed his phone after reports that he was among a group of politicians, journalists and human rights activists targeted with Israeli-made spyware called Pegasus. Le Monde reported this week that Macron and 14 French ministers were flagged for potential surveillance by Morocco, though authorities in the North African country have denied using Pegasus and insisted the allegations were false, according to the BBC. The spyware allows users to extract messages, photos and emails from iPhones and Android devices, whose calls can be recorded, while the microphones and cameras can be secretly activated. It was unclear if the software was ever installed on Macron’s phone, but his number was among a list of 50,000 contacts believed to be targeted by clients of Pegasus’ creator, Israeli-based NSO Group, since 2016, according to the BBC. NSO official Haim Gelfand told Israel-based...
    French President Emmanuel Macron has changed his telephone number, replaced his phone and ordered an overhaul of his security procedures in response to reports that he was among tens of thousands of politicians, activists, business leaders and journalists targeted by almost untraceable, military-grade spyware, BBC News reported. The spyware, called Pegasus, enables users to infiltrate phones without being detected in order to record calls, control cameras, and extract messages and emails. The company that makes the spyware, the Israel-based NSO Group, says it is only sold to "vetted government agencies" to be used against major criminals and terrorists, the Associated Press reported. Macron is one of a number of world leaders named in a recent leak of 50,000 contacts alleged to have been Pegasus targets, including the prime ministers of Pakistan, Egypt and Morocco and the presidents of Iraq and South Africa. It's unclear if every contact on the leaked list was hacked, according to BBC News. Investigations into the use of Pegasus have been launched in Israel, Hungary, and Algeria to determine if any crimes have been committed....

    A Frenchman who slapped French President Emmanuel Macron in the face was sentenced to prison Thursday on charges of violence against a public official, the Associated Press reported. Damien Tarel, 28, was sentenced to four months in prison and barred from ever holding public office by a Valence court after assaulting Macron Tuesday while he was on an official tour, the AP reported. During the trial, Tarel testified that the attack was unplanned and was brought on by anger at France’s “decline.” He defended his actions and calmly told the court, “I think that Macron represents very neatly the decay of our country,” the AP reported. “When I saw his friendly, lying look, I felt disgust, and I had a violent reaction. It was an impulsive reaction… I was surprised myself by the violence.” ????????

    The international community must draw "clear red lines" with Russia, French President Emmanuel Macron said, including implementing sanctions after any "unacceptable behavior" by Russian President Vladimir Putin. He said, however, that sanctions alone are not sufficient. In an interview with "Face The Nation" moderator Margaret Brennan, Macron said he "fully" shares Mr. Biden's desire to open dialogue with Russia. However, he said it was important to be clear with Putin "when we are not aligned." "This is the only way to be credible. I think that sanctions are not sufficient in itself, in themselves, but sanctions are part of the package. I do prefer constructive dialogue, but to have a constructive and efficient dialogue, you need credibility," Macron said.

For them, only “hard confinement” could allow the counters to be reset to zero on the front of the epidemic … Exactly like last spring. In the fall of 2020, this full containment did not however prevent the epidemic from starting again. France, crossroads of Europe, tourist country, and endowed with an economy of services, could not afford to cut itself off from the world. One year of epidemic, and one year of calls for national or “territorialized” re-containment. As if our horizon can only be summed up in this. However, more and more French people no longer...

From the start of the pandemic, he explained that he had the ambition to “To rebuild our national and European sovereignty. “ A few months earlier, in The Economist, he had urged his European partners to ensure “Strategic autonomy” from Europe. Then, in the heart of summer, when the French regained some strength between two epidemic waves, Emmanuel Macron returned to the subject, saying: “We must relocate and recreate production forces in our territories. Health and industrial sovereignty will be one of the pillars of the recovery plan ”.
