Macron didn’t wish the French a Merry Christmas

(rfi) – President Emmanuel Macron spent a quiet Christmas at the Bréganson Fort on France’s Mediterranean coast with his wife Brigitte, according to a communique published by the presidential palace.

Macron’s critics on the political right have taken to social media to criticise him for not wishing the nation a Merry Christmas.

Jordan Bardella, an MEP for the right wing National Rally party, took to Twitter on 25 December to complain, “the President of the Republic couldn’t be bothered to wish his fellow compatriots a Merry Christmas. Not a word, not a tweet…absolutely nothing.”
