Viral: A Bystander Slaps French President In The Face

In a shocking viral video, a bystander slapped French President Emmanuel Macron in the face during the latter’s trip to Southeast France as a part of his nationwide tour.

The video that emerged on social media, shows Macron approaching a barrier to greet a man, but gets slapped across the face instead of a hand-shake. President’s bodyguards quickly reacted and two people were arrested in the incident.

The slapping incident happened in the village of Tain-L’Hermitage in the Drom region. While the intention of the president’s tour was to take the country’s pulse, this incident caught more attention.

Macron is expected to seek re-election in next year’s presidential elections and polls also show him a narrow lead over far-right leader Marine Le Pen. ‘Politics can never be violence, verbal aggression, much less physical aggression,’ Prime Minister Jean Castex told parliament after the latest incident.
