    Napoleon 2.0

    When addressing lawmakers, Macron said that the "greatness of France" was his government's main ideology. The speech wasn't supported by several right- and left-wing lawmakers, who decided to boycott it and accused the president of leaning toward the fashion from across the Atlantic, others slammed him for adopting a “monarchial” style. Separately, the #Macron Monarc hashtag was spread on Twitter.
