French President Emmanuel Macron is offering refuge to American liberals upset at President Donald Trumps decision to withdraw from the Paris climate agreement.
In a video posted to Twitter, speaking in English, Macron said:
I wish to tell the United States: France believes in you. The world believes in you. I know that you are a great nation. I know your history, our common history.
To all scientists, engineers, entrepreneurs, responsible citizens who were disappointed by the decision of the president of the United States, I want to say that they will find in France a second homeland. I call them: Come and work here, with us, to work together on concrete solutions for our climate, our environment. I can assure you, France will not give up the fight.
Macron also posted a picture to Twitter, with the words Make Our Planet Great Again on a green and blue background.
Macron is a 39-year-old liberal who worked in mergers and acquisitions for the Rothschild investment bank in Paris and as the economy minister to French Socialist Party President François Hollande before rebranding himself as an outsider last year and launching a campaign for president.
He defeated populist National Front leader Marine Le Pen in May to become the youngest-ever president of France.
It may be because of his youth that Macron is not aware that the specter of a young Frenchman calling out the president of the United States, speaking English with a French accent, may invite more ridicule from Americans than gratitude.
"If you're wondering how to get into France, you can either be a Syrian [jihadi] or an American climate scientist," newspaper columnist and talk radio guest host Mark Steyn said on "The Rush Limbaugh Show" on Friday afternoon, before noting that France would likely require more paperwork from the American climate scientist than from the jihadi.
And as for President Trump himself, The Washington Post reported Friday that Trump's irritation with Macron's disrespecting him at their first meeting may have, in fact, helped seal his decision on withdrawal from the Paris accord.
It occurred in Brussels, Belgium, on May 26, when the new French president approached the line of world leaders, with Trump in the middle, but veered off to his right, ignoring Trump to shake German Chancellor Angela Merkel's hand first, and then the hand of NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenburg, only to then finally come to Trump, who clasped Macron hand tightly and pulled the slender Macron toward him forcefully while shaking his hand vigorously, breaking out into a huge smile not at Macron, but toward the cameras that he saw were pointed toward him.
At an earlier private meeting between Macron and Trump, the two had shaken hands, with both gripping tightly and grimacing for the cameras, in what some media organizations interpreted as an alpha male showdown.
In what was likely the best, or probably the most memorable, line from the president's energetic address from the Rose Garden on Thursday, in which he laid out a strong case for exiting the Paris agreement, he said: "I was elected to represent the citizens of Pittsburgh, not Paris."
Yeah gang why don’t you take him up on it?
Made for you, John.
“only to then finally come to Trump, who clasped Macron hand tightly and pulled the slender Macron toward him forcefully while shaking his hand vigorously, breaking out into a huge smile not at Macron, but toward the cameras that he saw were pointed toward him. “
What a hoot, where was the news coverage of this??
And btw is Macron a “real” man, or is he some variant of transgender?? LOL
As far as I can tell, the Hollywood celebs who PROMISED to leave the country if Hillary lost are still here though some might have left.
Liberals - PLEASE LEAVE!
This is the perfect opportunity to purge our cities of welfare recipients. Time to load up the jumbo jets and cruise ships with anyone on US welfare and votes Democrat, almost everyone, and send them Postage Paid, so to speak, to France as ‘Refugees’ where they will be qualified for all of the French welfare benefits.
I think 10 - 15 million would be a good start.
Can you imagine America without Liberals(Picturing happiness :-)
Of course the Hollywood leftist celebs didnt leave..they would NEVER leave their millions behind, and once they found out in Socialist countries they would have to give up 80 percent of their wealth to the Govt they decided to stay
They can stay at his mom's house.
Make them live in muslim sectors so they can get enriched by diversity...
Actually, that showdown took place earlier when they first met and Trump practically pulled Macron's arm out of its socket...the long shake was round deux.
French President Offers Refugee Status to U.S. Liberals
Invitations only for people of higher degrees. Scientists, etc. No riffraff. They don’t want our Hollywood crowd, our rappers, or other dregs. Too bad, as we could have pulled a Castro on them and emptied our prisons and sent them as a gift.
It might do the moonbats some good to be beaten, raped and murdered by the refujihadis.
If they live to tell about it, they can come back and become FReepers.
How do we persuade those liberal celebrities who said they would leave America to accept Macron’s offer? Supposedly they like France better anyway.
Pay their way and make them stay until after Trump’s re-election. They’ll want to come back.
I suspected all along that it was too good to be true.
