I have already noted here that every time Pope Francis answers questions from journalists on board a plane, he creates controversy. I am therefore not surprised to learn that it was during his return flight by plane, after his official visit to China, that Emmanuel Macron, chatting with journalists, set fire to the powder, with his declarations on Taiwan. Don’t ask me why it’s on the plane that it happens (problems of oxygenation or irrigation of the brain at this altitude?), I limit myself to observing.
Well, I know what you are going to tell me: Emmanuel Macron did not need to get on a plane on March 22 to trigger a package of outraged, even scandalized reactions, about strikes, demonstrations, unions , etc. : he was cushy on dry land, in a television studio. Except that on board his plane, he did much more: in a few sentences, he managed to confuse us with Taiwan, the United States, a bunch of Asian countries and most European countries, sorry. This is why, at a time when luminaries are proposing a moratorium on artificial intelligence, I suggest, modestly, a moratorium on interviews and declarations on board an aircraft. Let’s say for a month. Just to see if the situation will not have become calmer. By the way, he did not plan to fly after the decision of the Constitutional Council, Emmanuel Macron?
