François Hollande, the Socialist President of France, is apparently quite aware that Americans dislike only one thing more than socialists. And that is: snooty French socialists.
Hollande, who recently unveiled his controversial plan for a 75% income tax rate on people making over the equivalent of $1.3 million per year, was asked by reporters at the UN General Assembly this week whether he was backing either candidate in the U.S. presidential election. The self-aware Hollande pointed out that, in America, “as you’d imagine, if a socialist supported one of these candidates, it would cost him dear,” adding “I suppose I should endorse Mitt Romney.”
Jokes aside, Hollande said he was not officially endorsing either candidate. “I’m not saying that to get embroiled in the American electoral debate,” he said. “But it’s true that between President Obama and what I’m representing here today, France, there are common goals.” (François, stop helping!! Just stick with the Romney endorsement.)
*Don’t be a socialist. Go be a capitalist and buy some crap you don’t really need on Amazon.com through this link that we are helpfully providing here. If you don’t go buy some crap right now, that means you’re a socialist cheese-eating surrender monkey who hates America.
