Man Slaps French President Emmanuel Macron Across The Face, VIDEO

French President Emmanuel Macron was slapped across the face by a man during a trip to southeast France on Tuesday. Macron approached a barrier to shake hands with a man who slapped the 43-year-old across the face in the village of Tain-l´Hermitage in the Drome region.

A video has emerged showing a man slapping French President Emmanuel Macron across the face during a visit to a town in the country’s Southeast on Tuesday.

The footage – which has been confirmed by Macron’s office as authentic – begins with the French leader walking toward a crowd lined up at barriers in Tain-l’Hermitage, offering his greetings.

He then leans in and touches the arm of a man in a green shirt, before the man winds up and slaps Macron across the face, drawing a loud “oh!” from another onlooker.

Macron’s security detail and French police then intervene to separate the pair.

French news broadcaster BFM TV said two people have been detained by police in the wake of the slap.
