Last minute. French President Emmanuel Macron had a bitter surprise during his visit to Drôme, in the south-east of the country.
After visiting the tourism and hotel school of Tain-l’Hermitage, Macron approached the crowd that was waiting for him to shake his hand.
The person Macron approached slapped Macron, who was holding his arm with one hand, with the other. The guards intervened immediately.
In the images that have gone viral on social networks in a short time, we hear that the person who can not fully understand what he is saying by slapping, ends his sentence with “Down with macronism”.
The Elysee has confirmed the incident as an “attempted slapstick”. The French press wrote that 2 people had been arrested in connection with the incident.
THE IDENTITY OF THE ATTACKER IS DECLARED!
The French press wrote that the attacker practiced Kendo, the art of Far Eastern fencing, and was also a HEMA master. The assailant was said to be following far-right social media accounts. The Valence prosecutor’s office announced that the 28-year-old assailant, identified as Damien T., and his friend, who was detained with him, did not have a criminal record.

His second visit to the Drôme, which Macron calls the “tour of France”, is characterized by the opposition as an electoral tour.
