French President Emmanuel Macron was re-elected for a new five-year term on Sunday (24/4). Macron celebrated the victory alongside his wife Brigitte, who in 2019 was the subject of a joke made by President Jair Bolsonaro (PL), on social media.

Days later, a follower of the president posted a photo of Brigitte and First Lady Michelle, saying that Macron was stalking him out of envy. Bolsonaro replied: “Don’t humiliate man. Hahahaha”. The comparison made reference to the ages of the two wives and suggested that Bolsonaro would have an advantage because his was younger. In response, Macron called Bolsonaro “extremely disrespectful” and said he was sorry for Brazilians.

“We ask all Brazilians to become more and more aware of who this country, this wonder called Brazil. A unique country in the world, which has everything to succeed and we do need each one of you to rebuild it. And freedom comes first. (…) Our Brazil, green and yellow”, he highlighted.

“France is an example for us, much less Mr. Macron. Macron is very well accompanied by Lula, and Lula is very well accompanied by Macron, they understand each other, they speak the same language”, the president fired. “Macron always beat us up on the Amazon issue, as if he and his predecessors had preserved something in France,” he added.
