The French president, Emmanuel Macron, has received the impact of an egg when taking a mass bath during the International Exhibition of Restoration and Tourism in Lyon, by an individual who shouted: “Long live the revolution”.
The egg, which has not been broken, has hit the president on the shoulder, who was immediately protected by the bodyguards, and who at the same time asked to speak to the aggressor.RELATED
“If you have something to tell me, come,” said Macron, who assured that he would come to see him later. The forces of order have taken the man, a young man for now unidentified.
Until then, the head of state had had a rather placid visit to this room, where the country’s restaurateurs thanked him for his help during the worst months of the pandemic.
Macron announced that tips paid by credit card will be tax-exempt, one of the demands of workers in the sector.
Seven months before the presidential elections, the president is multiplying contacts with the public. In one of them, on June 8, he suffered an attack. Macron was in the town of Tain-L’Hermitage and was slapped by an individual, who was quickly sentenced to four months in prison.
As collected Le FigaroIt is not the first time that someone has thrown an egg at the French president. In 2017, when he was a candidate and visited the Agriculture Show, he was already the target of another, that exploded in his head.
