In "Apparent Sign Of Support" Obama Has Phone Call With Macron Days Ahead Of Election

In what Reuters has said was "an apparent sign of support just three days before the first round of an uncertain presidential election", French presidential candidate Emmanuel Macron - and the market-friendly candidate preferred by Europe's establishment - spoke with former U.S. president Barack Obama on the phone on Thursday.

Quick to avoid the perception of yet another foreign interference (who can forget Obama's strong condemnation of the Brexit campaign last summer), in a statement from Kevin Lewis, spokesperson to President Barack Obama, he said that "an endorsement was not the purpose of the call, as President Obama is not making any formal endorsement in advance of the run-off election on Sunday." And yet, the optics certainly imply just that.

The full statement below:

"President Obama spoke on the phone to Emmanuel Macron this morning. President Obama appreciated the opportunity to hear from Mr. Macron about his campaign and the important upcoming presidential election in France, a country that President Obama remains deeply committed to as a close ally of the United States, and as a leader on behalf of liberal values in Europe and around the world. An endorsement was not the purpose of the call, as President Obama is not making any formal endorsement in advance of the run-off election on Sunday."

Macron said Obama wanted to exchange views about the French presidential campaign and that the ex-president had stressed how important the relationship between the two countries was.

Macron's party "En Marche!" said in a statement that "Emmanuel Macron warmly thanked Barack Obama for his friendly call."

In a separate statement, Obama's spokesman added: "an endorsement was not the purpose of the call, as President Obama is not making any formal endorsement in advance of the run-off." Macron is the only candidate so far to have said he has talked with Obama, a popular figure in France.

So where is Obama these days? Obama to Marcon, "don't worry we got the Pedophile thing under control so far".

Yes but where, in DC, Epstein's private Island (likely) enjoying 60,000 dollars worth of "Succulent Hot-dogs".

Does this constitute 'interfering with the elections in a foreign country'?

silverer's picture

Yes, according to the US election standards set by the Deep State and their shills, the mainstream media.

He's got Susan Rice setting up French spread sheet and divulging the finer nuances of targeting Russians so his preferred candidate can know what the opposition is up to.

It's the latest thing!

French kiss of death. It is Obamanation after all so you know it's man to man tongues and a reach around afterwards. 


On the plus side Macron is now officially electorially doomed.

"Macron just lost the election"


Alas you're wrong, Obozo still has a HUGE appeal here (at least among the sheeple). But tonite's terrorist attack will boost Marine's ratings.

So all in all it's a tie. If the Muzzie scumbags are to make another attack before Sunday they'll propel Marine into the stratosphere...

I hope so.   The Euroweenies love Obama.  Obama does have the Fecal Midas touch, turning everything to shit that he touches.

Relax, Soweeto was simply asking Macron for some photos of him in a Speedo so he can pin them up next to Reggie's.

Then Macron must be the man-of-the-people, populist outsider, right?

but but but what if this is reverse double-think and they are trying to actually set up Le Pen to win??

Damn my brain hurts these days...everything is so fucking upside down and gaslit it's hard to see straight.

aliki's picture

sooooo does THIS count as "interferring in the democratic process"???

actually, lets hope obama does for france what he did for the U.K.

skbull44's picture

Considering how most outside the US view American politicians, this could work in Le Pen's favour...

froze25's picture

Don't worry people inside the US feel the same way for the most part. The American MSM dare not show it though.
