French President comes under egg attack.

Web Desk:

According to Reuters, a man pelted French President Emm­anuel Macron with an egg while he was visiting a restaurant and hotel trade fair in the south-eastern city of Lyon on Monday. The egg hit his shoulder, but bounced off without breaking, as he walked through a crowd while a protester shouted “Vive la revolution” (long live the revolution).

The assailant was quickly subdued and removed from the room, with Macron saying he would try to speak with him later.

“If he has something to tell me, let him come,” Macron said at the International Catering, Hotel and Food Trade Fair (SIRHA). “I’ll go see him afterward.”

It was a startling disturbance of the warm welcome by fair attendees for the centrist president, not least after he announced that restaurant tips paid by credit card would no longer be taxed.

Eggs from irate protesters are a common occupational hazard for French politicians, and Macron is no exception.

When he was still a candidate for the presidency in 2017, an egg exploded against his head during a crowded visit at the national agriculture fair in Paris. More recently, a man slapped him across the face while he was shaking hands with well-wishers in the southern city of Valence in June. The man was ordered to serve four months in jail.

Macron’s security detail is expected to be on high alert in the coming months as the centrist leader multiplies his public appearances ahead of a widely expected re-election campaign.

So far he has not officially declared his candidacy for another five-year term in voting set for April.
