The former Prime Minister expressed his disappointment with the stance taken by the leader of La France Insoumise on the set of the show « Quelle époque! » on Saturday evening on France 2.
La position de Jean-Luc Mélenchon et des Insoumis qui refusent d’associer le Hamas à une organisation terroriste continue de faire du bruit dans les médias. Une semaine après l’attaque contre Israël qui a fait près de 1400 Morts côté israélien, l’émotion reste palpable.
On Saturday evening, it was the former Prime Minister Édouard Philippe who mentioned on the Léa Salamé show « What a time! » the « huge political mistake » of Jean-Luc Mélenchon. And he added: « I’m upset with him… What he said is terrible, and since he is intelligent, he should know better. »
Une « ordure » pour Philippe Lellouche
For the current mayor of Le Havre, the question to ask is: « Is Jean-Luc Mélenchon truly revolutionary or does he only have the excitement of his speeches? » However, the day after the November 13, 2015 attacks, Jean-Luc Mélenchon « impressed » Edouard Philippe because he was able to find the right words in national unity.
Gérard Miller, a psychoanalyst close to the Insoumis, even stated that Mélenchon’s positions were a political mistake: « There is not even a discussion. »
On his part, actor Philippe Lellouche repeated his insult by once again referring to the leader of LFI as « trash » on the television set.
On the set, everyone agreed that Jean-Luc Mélenchon’s position was a political stance aimed at gaining the support of French Muslims. The left-wing alliance, Nupes, is at risk of falling apart due to LFI’s positions. The Communist Party is expected to decide on Sunday whether to leave the left-wing alliance. The Socialist Party was also supposed to make a decision before the news of Dominique Bernard’s murder in Arras on Friday disrupted their schedule.
