France’s Macron Attacks America’s Trump, and Americans Help Pay For It

Emmanuel Macron, the president of France, is playing host to world leaders—and attacking one of them. Guess who?

As The Washington Post reported on Sunday, “In the shadow of a grand war memorial here, French President Emmanuel Macron marked the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I by delivering a forceful rebuke against rising nationalism, calling it a ‘betrayal of patriotism’ and warning against ‘old demons coming back to wreak chaos and death.’” For much of Sunday, that article was the “Most Read” story on the Post’s website—of course it was.

Attacks on the media are a threat to democracy, Trudeau says

Trudeau was deliberately posed on the far left (ha!) so he can be cropped out easily.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau told a press freedom event in Paris Sunday that one of the bulwarks protecting democratic governments from being undermined is also an institution under stress — a free-thinking, robust media.

You’re literally supporting an act of child abuse,” said a post by Hanouf Mohammad on Twitter.

Women in Migrant-heavy Paris Area Complain Harassment Getting Even Worse

“The situation has worsened. Of course, since these men are more and more numerous. Like many others, I gave up taking the metro to La Chapelle, to cross the square … Even at a running pace,” a local woman who did not wish to be identified said.

“And do not talk about cafes. They do not say ‘Women Prohibited’ on the front, of course, but who would risk it? The police are more present, it’s true, but the fights are also more and more numerous and violent. I have the impression that these traffickers won the game: they took possession of the place,” she added.
