Frenchman defeats Frenchwoman

Another recent Facebook comment of mine:

A lot of conservative people I know are disappointed Macron defeated Le Pen. I don’t think it’s a disastrous  result. I would have preferred Fillon but it seems that the French will tolerate an affair of the heart with one’s teacher but not paying one’s wife to do no apparent work.

&

One point that has been only lightly touched on is that the French have pockets of social conservativism and Macron looks like a French President to the French. Marine Le Pen does not. [I could have been more specific, and written that the French don’t much favour women in such roles.]

    With that attitude, I hope their beloved “guests” give it to them good. Real good.
