You Won’t Believe What This Liberal Hero Spends on Makeup


Emmanuel Macron

American liberals took Emmanuel Macron’s victory in the French presidential election this year as a proxy win, while they continue to lose up and down ballot here in the U.S.

Macron’s win was celebrated by both wings of the Democratic Party:

They may want to take back their support, though, when they find out how much the young Macron spends on makup.

According to Le Point magazine, Macron “spent €26,000 on makeup in his first three months as leader of the country.”

A quick Google search finds that 26,000 euros is roughly equal to $30,808.31.

Do some back-of-the-napkin math, and Macron is spending around $342 a day on makeup.

Now, makeup is expensive. But, for reference’s sake, even the freest American spenders only put down about $11 per day for their makeup, in New York and Connecticut.

All of this begs the question: how do the French people feel about putting down $30,000 to pay for their leader’s makeup?
