“You call me Mr. President or Mr.,” French President Emmanuel Macron told a teenager who greeted him with an informal: “How about Manu?” and that, before, he had sung the first words of La Internacional, the communist anthem.
At this comment, the president replied: “You are in an official ceremony, behave as you should.You can play dumb but today it is La Marseillaise [French hymn] and the Song of the Partisans [anthem of the French Resistance during the German occupation] You call me Mr. President of the Republic or Mr., all right? “
“All right, sir,” the student replied as Macron continued to greet young people attending a ceremony honoring former World War II combatants outside Paris.
Macron turned to him again and, before giving him a little pat on the arm, said: “Good and do things in order, the day you want to make the revolution, first I got a diploma and learned to support yourself, Okay, at that moment, you will go and give lessons to others. “
