The Independent reports:
A Russian tabloid has quoted a description of the new President of France, Emmanuel Macron, as a psychopath who hates his country, and made derogatory allusions to homosexuality around him and his campaign. An article in Komsomolskaya Pravda, refers to a picture of a topless Mr Macron as he poses for a magazine with the title “coming out”.
The piece then later goes on to quote a psychiatrist who calls Mr Macron a psychopath, and suggests he does not love France and instead only loves himself. Psychiatrist Adriano Sagatori, who says he has studied the biography of the French President, described Mr Macron as a psychopath who he said would not fight for the French people.
“Like all psychopaths, he believes in his higher purpose. Macron does not love France and will not fight for the French people,” the article says. This is not the first time Russian media has chosen to attack Mr Macron and question his sexuality.
Sputnik, a Russian government-controlled news agency, previously claimed Mr Macron was “secretly gay and living a ‘double life’ while backed by a “very wealthy gay lobby.” Mr Macron was also allegedly targeted by Russian-linked hackers during his campaign.
