A football fan held up a sign reading “Hey Donald Trump: ‘Reef Champion’ Wasn’t Enough!” on behalf of the Aston Villa football club at the Goodison Park stadium, home of Everton, a major league English football club. So much for trying to stir up trouble in the dressing room.
It’s fair to say that Emmanuel Macron was well aware that he was standing in Parliament on Monday. The embattled French president had hoped to use the country’s parliamentary elections to put a bad day for the European Union in its place.
Instead, the candidate for the centrist Republic on the Move party felt the heat on Monday, especially after it was revealed that he had supported the homophobic manifesto of France’s constitutional council in the 1980s, especially when it pertained to homosexuality.
No wonder Macron got miffed. According to Le Monde, Macron is one of three newly named authors of the anti-LGBT French document, known as the Rutamente. And when Macron was asked why he had helped draft the report, he had this response: “Did I do it? I don’t remember.”
