SHAFAQNA (Shia International News Association) – French President François Hollande doesn’t like poor people and refers to them as the “sans-dents” (toothless ones), France’s ex-first lady Valérie Trierweiler said in her new book released on Thursday. Trierweiler said that the Socialist president is not too fond of France’s poor people.
Trierweiler writes: “He portrays himself as a man who doesn’t like the rich. But in reality, the president does not like poor people. She continues: “Him, a man of the left says in private “les sans-dents”, very proud of his humour.” Trierweiler’s words have provoked both anger and mockery in France, where the release of the book has dominated headlines.
The National Front were quick to react after hearing of Trierweiler’s claims. “Hollande despise the “sans dents”. This is probably the most interesting information in the book,” said a statement from the party. Party leader Marine Le Pen said: “If he said this, then it would reveal a face of François Hollande that would definitely ruin his image among those who put their trust in him.”
UMP deputy Valerie Boyer described it as “an expression of cynicism and contempt that is not acceptable”. The hashtag #sansdents topped the Twitter trends in France on Thursday and it prompted Twitter users to use their photo shop skills, by removing Hollande’s teeth from various photos. Trierweiler’s book finally hit the shelves on Thursday after being kept tightly under wraps. It was even printed in Germany to prevent any leaks. It has already become the best-selling book on Amazon France, shooting to the website’s number one spot in just one day.
