Criticism of French President

Hat tip Gates of Vienna and Vlad Tepes

During the recent Armistice Day celebration in France, which was attended by President Trump, French president Emmanuel Macron went out of his way to embarrass himself. He made statements to the effect that France should honor Philippe Petain (who led the French military in World War One but presided over occupied France during the Second World War), talked of forming a European army to defend the continent from the US, and attacked the government of Italy, specifically Interior Minister Matteo Salvini for his immigration policies.

In response, Macron was harshly criticized by another French politician,  Nicolas Dupont-Aignan of the National Assembly.
