French President Emmanuel Macron, who considers himself ‘a man of the people’ does not blame himself or economic problems for the rise of the yellow vest movement.

A head of the 12 consecutive week of yellow vest protests, Macron laid the blame on social media and the Russians (of course) rather than taking any responsibility himself.

Macron blasted the nation’s mainstream media for failing to control the narrative and argued that social networks and “the Russians” are driving all content instead, with traditional outlets falling into line. The president’s calculated outburst was published by the weekly Le Point on Friday, just before the Yellow Vests officially marked the 12th consecutive week of staging large-scale protests against the government.

The president dismissed Eric Drouet, the 33-year-old trucker who emerged as a prominent figure in the protests, as “a media product, a product of social networks,” and claimed that the demonstrators are being “advised from outside,” without elaborating. He argued that 90 percent of the chatter online about the Yellow Vests comes from the “[far] rightists, leftists, and the Russians.”
