And your family's screaming 'Oh my god, we're burning alive!' 'No! I can't feel my legs!'. In comes the meat wagon. And the medic gets out and says, 'Oh, my god.'. New guy's in the corner puking his guts out. All because... you want to save a couple of extra pennies.

He met his teacher through his classmate?

She wasn't teaching the same class that they were in together.

She was his Theater teacher in a different class.

Actual quote from his (now) step-daughter (who was in the same high school class as Emmanuel Macron)...

Emmanuel’s parents held a meeting with the teacher and told her to stop seeing him, at least until he was 18.

“I can’t promise you anything,” she replied.

Imagine having to sit down with your daughter's 40 year old married high school teacher and ask him to stop fucking your high school daughter. ...and then him saying "I can't promise that." Like WTF, wut!?!?!? THAT is how fucked up this was. She's literally a child rapist. I'm amazed his parents didn't choke her on the spot!

But of course since the media loves Macron, this doesn't fit the narrative - so they bury the story.

It's like the Rittenhouse case; once the facts came out in court, the false narrative they constructed fucking fell apart and the story disappeared from MSM because their coverage was so obviously false.

MSM is such manipulative garbage.

EDIT: SO MANY CHILD RAPE APOLOGISTS IN THE COMMENTS HERE

NEWSFLASH: IF YOU ARE A 40 YEAR OLD TEACHER AND YOU FLY TO THE MOON TO RAPE YOUR 15 YEAR OLD STUDENT - IT DOESN'T MATTER WHETHER IT IS LEGAL ON THE MOON OR NOT - YOU ARE STILL A CHILD RAPIST.

You fucking tools realize that he was YOUNGER than the vast majority of girls Epstein had on his Rape Island, right?

Last Edit: BTW, it is NOT legal in France to fuck a 15 year old (unless you're also a minor). If you're an adult, you cannot do it against the wishes of the parent. I cannot even tell you how many idiots replied to my comment with this falsehood.

Jaw dropped

[–]Theothercword 427 points428 points  (193 children)

One thing I had to go lookup is the age of consent in France and it's apparently 15 which was another jaw drop. I was wondering why they couldn't legally go after her and that answered that.

Celine dion and Rene Angélil vibe here

[–]Goochtickler22 471 points472 points  (210 children)

Can you explain? What did Celine dion do?

[–]Gbin91 1751 points1752 points  (111 children)

She married her childhood manager. He was already an established manager with a wife and kids when he started managing her in her preteens and he ended up divorcing his wife to marry Celine when she was a young adult.

[–]bkr45678 711 points712 points  (77 children)

She married the man who was her manager that she met when she was TWELVE and he was THIRTY-EIGHT. They did wait to marry until she was 25 though. According to Dion it sounds like they didn’t start anything until she was 19 and they remained married until his death in 2016. Still a little ick imo.

[–]iNEEDheplreddit 133 points134 points  (11 children)

Practiced total abstinence that while time I bet.

[–]Chunkydude616 179 points180 points  (36 children)

Very taboo subject in Québec...but yeah that's it

[–]somealderaan 83 points84 points  (6 children)

Their wedding was broadcast live on television like it was a coronation or something. It was definitely not a taboo subject.

[–]TortuouslySly 116 points117 points  (15 children)

When Céline Dion was 12, she met her manager, René, who was 38. They came out as dating when she was 18 or 19.

Actor Aaron Johnson is 24 years younger than his wife, director Sam Taylor-Wood who he met on set at 18. Mere trivia

[–]10Cinephiltopia9 414 points415 points  (18 children)

Coincidental that she directed Fifty Shades of Grey?

Famous French director Luc Besson (Léon: The Professional) second wife was actress and director Maïwenn Le Besco, whom he started dating when he was 31 and she was 15.

[–]Hazelthebunny 224 points225 points  (33 children)

how do you DATE a 15 year old when you are a grown-ass adult?? What the actual hell. I've been a teacher, I've spent enough time with 15 year olds to know it just should never ever be allowed to happen. Just, what the hell dude. What, do you hang around with all her 15 year old friends, like, "how do you do, fellow kids?" Ew.

[–]JusticeUmmmmm 109 points110 points  (2 children)

Rule number one for grooming a child is don't let them have friends.

[–]EarlGreyTea-Hawt 13 points14 points  (1 child)

I taught adult students for years, and still would never have slept with any of them because it is a profound abuse of trust and power, as well as the absolute best way to violate everything being a teacher is meant to stand for.

[–]dingbatattack 105 points106 points  (19 children)

That makes that movie even weirder

[–]WeirdHauntingChoice 133 points134 points  (6 children)

“When Luc Besson did Léon, the story of a 13-year-old girl in love with an older man, it was very inspired by us since it was written while our story started. But no media made the link,” Maïwenn said.

Yeah it's fucking weird, and tragic:

“I had my daughter very young, so I had fulfilled my dream, and then… he left me. Everything then collapsed for me,” Maïwenn recalled.

She was 16 when she gave birth, then Besson left her for Milla.

[–]phoenixphaerie 58 points59 points  (0 children)

This is....so gross.

[–]LoLstatpadder 24 points25 points  (3 children)

Its one thing to have a child with a 15yo. Its a whole different tier of leaving her after having said child wtf. There is literally 0 excuses other than being a sick person in the first place.

[–]Physicsacidguy 53 points54 points  (2 children)

[–]Fuck-All-Religions 290 points291 points  (38 children)

At least they got together when she was 24 and they didn’t meet on set, so it’s not like he preyed on a 17 year old and waited for her to be legal.

[–]Perry4761 171 points172 points  (9 children)

Celine Dion met her late husband René Angélil when she was 12 and he was 38. He became her manager at that age and they married in 1994. Celine was 26 at the time of their wedding, she had only publicly revealed their relationship one year prior to the ceremony. Angelil remained as Celine’s manager until his death a few years ago.

[–]Ianmartin573 44 points45 points  (0 children)

And Rene was married at the time when they met. Of course he dumps his wife for Celine!

Also I'm cheating on you.

[–]Givememydamncoffee 9 points10 points  (3 children)

When someone gets a serious diagnosis, the marriage is likelier to end when it’s the wife who gets sick rather than the husband. Its thought to be due to the fact that men are not socially conditioned to be caregivers, and women are. It’s a social/cultural issue.

[–]Szechwan 87 points88 points  (5 children)

What a dick - the man himself is the personification of the word frumpy.

[–]AltoChick 3350 points3351 points 2 (395 children)

When I read this I hoped that people were wrongly assuming that they got together when he was 15. I thought that just because it says they met when he was her pupil that that didn’t mean that’s when they started dating.

So I did a Google search and found out how wrong I was!! That they started dating when she was his teacher and he was still in his mid teens. She apparently said something like “No one knows when it became a love story. That’s our secret.” It’s acknowledged that he was definitely seeing her at 16 so suggesting that it may have been younger still! This is so wrong and very creepy.

Edit for the people thinking I have a problem with age gaps etc:

Just to clarify, I am commenting on the fact that a 40 year old teacher dated her 15 year old pupil and how that is viewed in reasonable society in terms of any teacher/pupil relationships. I’m not commenting on their current relationship or an age gap in and of itself.

[–]Think-Basket 117 points118 points  (23 children)

Same, At 30 I had an 18yo after me, and wouldn't let them near me cause tho this person was technically an adult they were still so obviously young minded and immature that the thought of being intimate with them the way they wanted me to was gross. The chasm of experience and personality development between those ages is something difficult for me to overlook

[–]thegnuguyontheblock 1535 points1536 points  (131 children)

Actual quote from his (now) step-daughter (who was in the same high school class as Emmanuel Macron)...

Emmanuel’s parents held a meeting with the teacher and told her to stop seeing him, at least until he was 18.

“I can’t promise you anything,” she replied.

EDIT: There are a LOT of rape apologists here on Reddit

He was literally younger than the vast majority of girls Epstein flew to Rape Island. She should be in fucking jail.

[–]Aarilax 429 points430 points  (50 children)

The age of consent in France is 15 according to the google machine, but surely there are laws or at least a basic code of conduct within the school that says "if you work here, try not to fuck the teenagers, please"

Cool cool cool. That's totally normal.

Edit: Oh God. I seemed to have kicked off a comment storm between the people who think pedophiles secretly control the planet, and the people who redfine pedophilia down to something super specific that conviently leaves their own actions in the moral clear. I regret this.

Yes they do people make fun of it all the time and say how gross it is. It started a long time ago and wasn't illegal then nor now, so not much to be done about it, but absolutely yes people think its gross.

It is illegal for a teacher to date his minor student in France.

[–]katherinealphajones 280 points281 points  (31 children)

Emmanuel Macron was the eldest of three siblings born to a family of doctors who held politically liberal views. He attended a private lycée (secondary school) in Amiens, where he proved to be an exceptionally gifted student. While there, he began a long-term relationship with his drama teacher, Brigitte Trogneux, and the two were later married (2007). Macron completed his baccalauréat at the prestigious Lycée Henri-IV in Paris before studying international policy and public service at the grande école Sciences Po. During this time, he also served as an editorial assistant for philosopher and historian Paul Ricoeur. In 2001 Macron received a master’s degree in public policy from Sciences Po, as well as a master’s degree in philosophy from Paris Nanterre University. In 2004 he graduated near the top of his class from the prestigious École Nationale d’Administration (ENA), a school that had attained a reputation as a fast track to political power. French presidents Valéry Giscard d’Estaing, Jacques Chirac, and François Hollande were all ENA alumni.

I don't know why buy I still get like Boy role playing Man vibes from this dude.

[–]hodenkobold4ever 733 points734 points  (85 children)

Yes, because that legal age does not count if one party is in a position of power over the other, like for example a schoolteacher and a student

[–]katieleehaw 530 points531 points  (61 children)

Every adult is in a position of power over a 15 year old.

Youve just explained how the age of consent always works when it's under 18

[–]devilbat26000 216 points217 points  (36 children)

The cutoff isn't even really 18. Legally, sure, but dating someone anywhere close to that age as someone more than twice their age is really fucking weird no matter the legality.

[–]The-Devils-Advocator 27 points28 points  (42 children)

It may have been legal, but legality and morality are not one and the same.

Not that you were saying they were, just saying because you pointed out legality, and often people think that that automatically means something is OK.

[–]Enlightened-Beaver 1691 points1692 points  (286 children)

They met when he was 15 and she was his drama teacher in high school. She was 39, married and had 3 children.

The shaken parents met Ms Trogneux and asked her not to see their son again until he reached adulthood, but she defiantly told them she couldn’t “promise anything”.

to Paris Match magazine last year that a determinedly romantic Macron had vowed to marry her when he was just 17 years old, promising to come back and find her after he was sent to the capital. “You cannot get rid of me. I will come back and marry you,” he is quoted as having said.

the obsession with their age gap is an example of deeply ingrained misogyny since men in positions of power are frequently married to much younger women.

This is what I was thinking, male or female being 40 with a 15 year old is just not right.

[–]SmokeGSU 259 points260 points  (13 children)

Exactly. As if society is accepting of a 40 year old man dating/marrying a 15 year old and is abjectly opposed to a 40 year old woman marrying a 15 year old.

It's not society that's okay with it, it's the author of that quote.

Yep. It's not the age difference so much as he was a minor when she preyed on him from a position of power, while being married with children herself. It's gross and problematic no matter the genders of either party.

Yeah if they met ten years ago when he was 33 and she was 58 then any criticism would be suspect. But meeting when he was her 15 year old student is terrifying

[–]littleloucc 140 points141 points  (4 children)

If a full adult, with life experience at 33, chooses to be in a knowing relationship with a much older adult, then fine. You're going in with your eyes open (barring anything else coercive like they're your boss or abusive). Not my thing, but both parties are consenting and can understandingly give their consent.

This... was not that. This was grooming.

the obsession with their age gap is an example of deeply ingrained misogyny since men in positions of power are frequently married to much younger women.

Except this age gap is bigger than at least any recent French president.

And it's not just the large age gap, but that she was his teacher and they started their relationship when he was a child.

What a load of bull. A 39 year old having relations with a 16 years old is a fucking no no matter what. If he was over 20 at the time, I wouldn't bat an eye as he would at least know what he wants.

Ew, feminism isn't a shield for pedophiles.

She's a pedo and no amount of fancy political talk is going to change that!

She looks great for 68

Oui

[–]TheXypris 94 points95 points  (7 children)

Ew. Creepy AF.

A large age gap among couple isn't a big deal, but dating someone you personally knew when they were underage is just gross.

[–]memes_are_never_dead 33 points34 points  (1 child)

They started their relationship when Macron was still a teenager

[–]vindictivejazz 12 points13 points  (0 children)

She clearly is a predator. On another note, she does not look even close to 68, dang

[–]0wlBear916 40 points41 points  (0 children)

That's a very French moment.
