Paris, France – Brigitte Macron, wife of French President Emmanuel Macron, has reportedly been spotted looking at the parisienne masses in tumult from a balcony at the Elysee, the palace where she resides, and commenting “let them eat cake”.
It is just another sign of the fact that history might be repeating itself after the whole chaos that followed the French Rebellion back in 1789. As some of our readers may remember, back then after the rebellion some guy Napoleon seized power, started battling all the other kings in Europe, made it to the Pyramids and, in general, made a huge mess.
Is this the case, once again? Yes, no, maybe. The certain thing is that France finds itself again in an age of turmoil: after the gilets jaune, after the loss at the World Cup against Argentina – there is just to much excitement in the hexagon.
Mr. Macron appears a little skeptical about the invitation to resign and cede power. “I am not so sure” he said massaging the back of his head “that this is the right decision”.
