CNN is apparently worried that Marine Le Pen could win the upcoming election in France. If Le Pen wins, it would be an indication that Trump and nationalism are part of a broader world trend and not just a fluke, as CNN would like to believe.
CNN Panics over French Election, Admits Le Pen Could Win
CNN has said the similarity between the French presidential election and the U.S. presidential election is “frightening” as they predict Marine Le Pen’s polling numbers could be much higher than current polls indicate.
The U.S. presidential election in 2016 saw more than its fair share of twists and turns, ultimately leading to an electoral college victory for President Donald Trump. CNN claims the French election is looking similar in many ways as establishment candidates like Republican François Fillon and Socialist party Benoit Hamon are pushed out of the race.
The piece, which was written by David A. Andelman, claims that French media is behaving much like U.S. media did in the run-up to the election, “effectively baptising one of the two leading candidates the winner even before the first ballot is cast”.
Le Pen would be the best candidate for the French people.
She would protect France’s borders and stop the flood of unvetted refugees.
