Faustine Bollaert Snubs Emmanuel Macron

On Thursday, July 4, 2024, Faustine Bollaert was reportedly directly contacted by Emmanuel Macron. The President of the Republic wanted her to host a major show where he would intervene, but the host is said to have declined this proposal.

Emmanuel Macron was considering speaking in prime time shortly after announcing the dissolution of the National Assembly on June 9, 2024. The Élysée Palace then discussed with France 2 and TF1 to organize a special news broadcast on June 23 to convince the French of the necessity of this surprise dissolution.

However, another idea emerged: inviting Faustine Bollaert, host of Ça commence aujourd’hui, to conduct a major one-on-one interview. The Head of State hoped to reach a wide and diverse audience this way. A source close to the Élysée confirms this idea among others, but Faustine Bollaert reportedly declined this offer, fearing a misunderstanding from her viewers.

Despite a personal call from Emmanuel Macron to convince her, the host maintained her refusal, considering that this type of interview would be inappropriate in the current context. Ultimately, Emmanuel Macron settled for addressing the French through a letter published in the regional daily press.
