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.
