Seeking to quell Yellow Vest anger, Macron says some of the poor are just 'screwing around'

President Emmanuel Macron's hopes of quelling the economic anger of Yellow Vest protesters by launching a national debate ran aground Tuesday when he sparked new outrage by saying some of those struggling economically were just “screwing around”.





Macron had planned to try to quell a rising tide of economic anger with a speech in Normandy announcing a round of public gatherings that would form a "grand national debate" on the issues facing France, from tax reform to adopting green energies. But instead he sparked an immediate backlash while on a surprise visit to the town of Gasny by seeming to suggest that many of those struggling economically had only themselves to blame. Even as the French president expressed his desire to "empower" people in “difficult economic circumstances”, he mused that while some were “doing the right thing” others were just “screwing around” with the system. His sentiments, as well as the vulgar expression he used in French, sparked immediate reactions on social media from politicians on both the left and the right. Socialist politician Olivier Faure was one of the first to fire back.



It gets even worse for Liberalism.



Macron had already unleashed a fresh wave of indignation on Friday, when he said that too many French citizens “think they can get things without making an effort".





The 41-year-old centrist has made a series of comments perceived by many French as arrogant and out of touch, including when he told an unemployed man that he could find him a job just by "crossing the street". France has had an unemployment rate hovering near 10 percent for most of the past decade

This is what the Hero of Liberal Liberalism Order of France and Europe thinks of his own voters and French People.
Macron just added more fuel to the fire by committing more self suicide for the French Liberals permanently.


Macron and the Liberals of France have no problems accusing and insulting the French people who are unemployed by the polices they created agaisnt the french people while labeling the people as lazy or the poor are just screwing around.

At the same these liberals and pro open border groups have no problem forcing France to accpet thousands and thousands of migrants who aren't even having an effect on their economy.

Macron and the Liberals are finished.

Sorry you are facing "Obama policies" in France.

Learn from America. . . Thousands (millions) of Migrants (from where-ever) have no effect on the economy?

He thinks talking about their feelings while simultaneously ignoring the root causes of their anger is going to stop the protests. He has shown how completely out of touch he is with the common man.

This bloke reminds me of Canadas latest contribution to political greatness. A #in freak who literally can't be taken seriously. Then again, what are we to expect from an ex-Rothschild investment wanker.

Mainstream News Media is pathetic. Just look at this article and compare it to the French24 one.
Macron Says Some Poor French People Need to Stop ‘Messing Around’



But his bid to reconnect with voters hit another snag on Tuesday with an attack on feckless poor people. “For people in a difficult situation, we will try to make them take more responsibility," he said in the northern French town of Gasny. "Because some are doing the right thing, and some are just messing around.”

MSM are in a desperate position on trying to defend Macron and his gov/party in this least circus fall. By not quoiting the whole statement on what Macron said MSM has even gone as far as to censor the word screwing around.

The author in the bloomberg article censored the word screwing around and replaced it with messing around, which is not what Macron said.
This goes to show that MSM are out of touch with reality on the ground as well.

My close circle of liberal friends treats these two as if they are unable to be criticized and the cats meow.

Only a few can even laugh at let’s say a funny Trudeau meme.
