'Arrogant' Macron Nowhere In Sight As Riots Sweep France

Embattled French President Macron is hiding away at the Elysee Palace while Paris burns from riots over his globalist environmental policies.

According to reports, Macron has been avoiding the limelight while trying to figure out a solution to the violent protests that descended on Paris earlier this week.

Several prominent French figures have implored Macron to address the protesters before the weekend.

"I give advice to the President of the Republic: speak to #GiletsJaunes, do not hide at the Elysée, do not ask others to do what the French expect of you, listen to them, hear them before Saturday!" Marine Le Pen tweeted Wednesday.

Socialist party leader Jean-Luc MĂ©lenchon also jabbed at Macron's noticeable absence on Tuesday.

"Did he #Macron come back from Argentina? He must have an opinion, probably."

Est-ce que #Macron est revenu d'Argentine ? Il doit avoir un avis, sans doute.— Jean-Luc Mélenchon (@JLMelenchon) December 4, 2018

Riots continued to grip Paris Saturday, with over 1,300 arrested and dozens injured as the French government ordered 89,000 police deployed on the streets.
