French President Hollande Says That Donald Trump Makes Him 'Sick'

Bloomberg: Hollande Says Trump Excesses in U.S. Elections Make Him Sick

* French President made comments over drinks with journalists
* Trump has said ‘France is no longer France’ and slammed Merkel

French President Francois Hollande expressed extreme revulsion at Donald Trump’s “excesses” in the U.S. presidential campaign and warned against the authoritarian tone adopted by the Republican nominee and billionaire reality-television celebrity.

“In the U.S., one of the world’s great democracies, maybe the greatest democracy, where democracy was born, before the French one, we see some excesses that are sickening,” Hollande said in Paris during the annual meeting with the presidential press.

Particularly, Hollande added, when Trump “speaks ill of a soldier, of the memory of a soldier,” an allusion to his feud with the parents of Capt. Humayun Khan, a Muslim-American soldier killed in Iraq in 2004.

They may not fancy Mr. Hollande anymore, but I would imagine that the majority of the French people totally agree with their Presidents opinion of Donald Trump. You know, like most thoughtful people.

I was really hoping for this. For Trump to take on my least favourite Western leader. Seems like I'll get my wish.

As for the majority of French people - no, I doubt it. I don't know about "most thoughtful people" (was there a poll?) but it's not like the French are thoughtful. And many of them are certainly quite open to right-wing demagoguery.

Ha ha, maybe you live in the states. Here in Europe (sweden in my case) we are sick of politicians that care only rapefugess and Islam. We would love to get someone like Trump in charge.

I strongly suspect that "most thoughtful people", while they have reservations about Mr. Trump are secretly hoping he wins the presidency. While I'm not sure about other places in the world, to openly support Mr. Trump in the US especially as a public person opens one up to the most vile and vicious attacks imaginable. As such, I suspect there are allot of "thoughtful" people in the US who are going to be voting Trump in the privacy of the booth.

A "thoughtful" person would not have done the following. 1.)Call for the removal of Assad of Syria when such a thing was never ever going to happen as the Russians would never allow it. To be blunt, for any policy to be successful it has to be based upon realistic assumptions. People with a business background understand such things, 2.)foolishly back anti-Russian elements in Ukraine, and 3.)act in ways to antagonize Russia in times and places that are unnecessary and run counter to American interests.

Mr. Obama opposed the surge in Iraq and the Iraq war for sound reasons then he goes and advocates for the exact same thing he opposed in Iraq in Libya!! This appears to be an erratic and unstable mind at play. Mr. Obama either needs to be institutionalized or he needs to be treated as a small child and placed under adult supervision until he can learn to think as an adult.
