The Presidential Bunk Up
So President Hollande of France has dumped his girlfriend Valerie Trierweiler after having being caught red handed sneaking out of an apartment block after an illicit meeting with his mistress Julie Gayet.
What i don’t understand is why the media is so obsessed with this story?
The reality is that French people just don’t give a monkey’s about this story. The British national media and no doubt plenty of others have now seemingly ambushed pretty much every single French person in the whole of France and yet to find anyone who is even slightly outraged by the Presidents conduct!
The person in all this who i feel sorry for is obviously Ms Trierweiler, Why? well other than the fact she’s been cheated on by the President, according to many news reports she only a few days ago said she would forgive Hollande for his piss poor conduct and stand by him, only to be dumped a couple of days later.
What i also don’t understand is why two good looking and successful women would want to bunk up with Hollande in the first place. Lets face it, he’s made a right pigs ear of leading France, a country that is by all accounts still gripped by the effects of the global banking fiasco and is also about the most unpopular French President in history. Maybe they have a thing for underdogs?
It can’t be power or fame surely? 😉
