  • M. Bibard,

    Je l’aime!

    Mais, je ne comprend pas les responsabilités de la première femme.
    Maintenant, la première femme a quitté. M. Holland est le président, mais
    France est sans la première femme.
    Expliquez.

    Je vous remercie.

    Annie

    • Haha, en France la première dame de France n’a pas de statut particulier. Elle peut faire ce qu’elle veut. En général on essaye de séparer la vie publique et la vie privée. Valérie Trierweiler et François Hollande se sont séparés parce que ce dernier a eu une liaison avec une actrice. Très honnêtement je ne pense pas que les Français se préoccupent d’avoir une première dame.
