These two relevant arguments were used by the defense lawyer to free his client.
The man had slapped the President during a Presidential visit to South-east of France.
The twenty-Eight-year-old Frenchman, Damien Tarel explained to the court the reason behind his decision to slap the country’s President, Emmanuel Macron.
He told the court on Thursday that he had thought about other ways to embarrass the President several days ahead of Macron’s visit to the region.
Tarel said he had thought about throwing an egg or a cream tart at the president, but added the slap was not premeditated.
“I think that Macron represents very neatly the decay of our country,” he told the court, according to BFM TV.
“If I had challenged Macron to a duel at sunrise, I doubt he would have responded.”
He added that he was angered by Macron’s “friendly” looks. The court handed him an 18-month jail term out of which 14 is suspended
