president of the Republic
Le Canard enchaîné reveals today an exchange between the president of the Republic Emmanuel Macron, and the ex-president Nicolas Sarkozy.
Invited by the president of the Republic Emmanuel Macron at a tribute to Helmut Kohl in Strasbourg on the 1st of July, the ex-president of the Republic Nicolas Sarkozy would have thanked him in a strange way : “Thank you, you are very high. You’re not like your predecessor, who had ill-treated my wife during our departure from the Elysée “.
It refers to the moment where, during the handover of power, president Hollande had not descended the steps of the Elysee for the ride home as well as his wife Carla Bruni to their car. A gesture that was highly analyzed and commented on at the time and took it as a real affront by Nicolas Sarkozy and his wife, who had even dedicated a song from his album titled ” The penguin “.
In a documentary aired on Canal+ this year, François Hollande confess, however, that he regretted this gesture :” I have regrets because in the end, I didn’t want to give the feeling of being discourteous to the respect of my predecessor. “” I thought that I was not in the same relationship as that of Nicolas Sarkozy Jacques Chirac in which he had been the minister “.
His words of reconciliation and regret seem not to have been heard by French president Nicolas Sarkozy and Carla Bruni-Sarkozy.
