Well, the unvaccinated, I really want to piss them off,” He said. “So we will continue to do it, until the end, that’s the strategy”, he said.
“A Loving Way”
“You said ‘fuck the non-vaccinated’, that we were sub-citizens, we still got a kick out of it,” a passer-by told him during his visit. Emmanuel Macron’s response: “I never said that. I said it in a way, in quotes, ‘affectionate’.”
