When you have a political system of presidential republic this is what you get; a turn-out of 44% in the parliamentary-elections.

The election itself was a huge success for Macron. His party was only founded two years ago and now it has the majority. A bit fickle those French voters, arent they?

Something he said :  «L’art français, je ne l’ai jamais vu». French art? I’ve never seen it. 

His declaration is questionnable. He explained himself. For him, once a culture has influence from something external from France, it means it's not french. He stated the influence of Picasso and many others who had an impact in french art.

If it is what he really thinks, it was clumsy to say that french art does not exist. He should have said something like art does not have nationality and therefore, there is no such thing like a national art, including the one of France. But that would have been to clever from a multiculturalist like him. Multiculturalist gurus who think that all the cultures are good except your's and that foreigners are all bringing you cutlure wealth to your poor one. That kind of thinking is the exact ugly opposite side of the ugly facist one of the FN. That is why Macron won only with 62% instead of une écrasante majorité like did Chirac against Lepen father, more than a decade ago. Macron and those in the same kind of mindset are feeding the extreme right with their non sense blindfold eyes.

Marine Le Pen is an extreme right winger, she has Dangerous political positions and it is a very good thing that she is not elected... but... she is not as worst as the bien pensant would like to demonize her and she addresses real problem with immigration policies that many others like Macron blindfold themselve. The people expériences the conséquences of that and it is no surprise if she got so much support. Seriously, at some point I thought she would get it this time.

Leaders in France really need to address their problems with lucidity because next time, she might win. Fortunately, there are a rising number of french politicians that understand the importance of address the multi ethnicity with a pluriculturalism policiy rather than a multiculturalism one, but it seems that Macron isn't among them. So I am happy that Le Pen did not win, but I am not enthusiast with Macron. I think it is a feeling shared by all alot of french Citizen right now.

Macron has made some sort of a record as how soon his popularity has shrunk since he took office.
