    oh my god, i swear the russians and fox news right wing trolls are the same people.
    also, not gonna lie, macron does it for me. i think he's way hotter than pretty boy justin trudeau.



    Emmanuel Macron labelled 'psychopath who hates France' in Russian media


    An article in Komsomolskaya Pravda says France deserves to go through 'globalist hell'





    Emmanuel Macron becomes the youngest French President in the history of the republic Reuters

    A Russian tabloid has quoted a description of the new President of France, Emmanuel Macron, as a psychopath who hates his country, and made derogatory allusions to homosexuality around him and his campaign.

    An article in Komsomolskaya Pravda, refers to a picture of a topless Mr Macron as he poses for a magazine with the title “coming out”.
    The piece then later goes on to quote a psychiatrist who calls Mr Macron a psychopath, and suggests he does not love France and instead only loves himself.

    “Like all psychopaths, he believes in his higher purpose. Macron does not love France and will not fight for the French people," the article says.. Psychiatrist Adriano Sagatori, who says he has studied the biography of the French President, described Mr Macron as a psychopath who he said would not fight for the French people.

    “Macron loves only himself and he will fight to defend their fragile identity."

    The piece also goes on to say that the word psychopath is not an insult and adds that the French deserve Mr Macron.
    “They, [the French], have to go through globalist hell. They do not deserve democracy, paid for with the lives of millions of Soviet soldiers,” it says.

    This is not the first time Russian media has chosen to attack Mr Macron and question his sexuality.
    Sputnik, a Russian government-controlled news agency, previously claimed Mr Macron was “secretly gay and living a ‘double life' while backed by a “very wealthy gay lobby.”

    Mr Macron was also allegedly targeted by Russian-linked hackers during his campaign.
    Researchers at the Japanese firm Trend Micro listed 160 attempts at electronic espionage which were attributed to a group called Pawn Storm.

    American spy agencies have accused the group of acting as an arm of Russia’s intelligence apparatus.
    In addition Marine Le Pen, the leader of the Front National and Mr Macron’s rival in the presidential race, alluded to allegations Mr Macron had an offshore bank account in the Bahamas.

    Mr Macron launched a lawsuit over the allegations, which appeared on websites linked to the Kremlin.
    Russian government officials have repeatedly denied claims of state-sanctioned hacking or interference in the election.

    In the French election Mr Macron comprehensively beat Marine Le Pen of the hard-right Front National.
    He successfully secured 65 per cent of valid votes cast compared with only 35 per cent for his opponent.
    At the age of 39, Mr Macron is now the youngest President in the Republic’s history.

    Well at least, Le Pen lost...

    "Mackron hackers" sounds suspiciously like "Mackerel snappers". Are we sure the Catholics aren't behind this?

    It's behind a pay wall.

    I think Macron is attractive, but I'm more into pretty boy Trudeau

    Still can't get over how a French president is my own age. (Sometimes it still feels unreal that I'm nearly 40. Like when the fuck did *that* happen?)

    I get the pay wall sometimes but not always with the FT. Will try to post the whole article from work, it breaks down the french vote not only by rural v. urban, income and level of education but also by things how people resounded to survey questions about their level of iptimism in general.
