The 40-year-old Macron did not love it. Which he made clear to the middle-schooler by saying, “No, you can’t do that. No, no, no, no. You call me Mr. President or Sir."
The teen apologized, but the president apparently saw this as a teachable moment.
“You’re here, at an official ceremony, and you should behave,” he elaborated. “The day you want to start a revolution, you study first in order to obtain a degree and feed yourself, OK? And then you can lecture others.”
The jury's out here on whether the president was in the right. Some thought he had a point and that he taught the teen a valuable lesson. Others think he overreacted.
But we can all agree that teens are rad.
