people in the US are fond of saying "a republic not a empire" and "a president not a king" to convey the idea of limited government
not so in france, where the new socialist president macron thinks he is not just a king but also a godMacron, a new Franco-European monarch

that interviewMacron ne croit pas "au président normal, cela déstabilise les Français"
I thought the term was "Jovian" (or "Jovien" in french), not "jupiterian" or "jupitérien"

It's not because he has poor communication skills or poorly thought-out policies that make no sense. Rather, mere mortals are incapable of understanding his godlike thought processesMy thoughts are 'too complex' for journalists, says Emmanuel Macron
