A Republican congressman denounced French President Emmanuel Macron as a “science-alarmist” after the world leader delivered a speech to Congress on Wednesday.
Following Macron’s speech, Kentucky Rep. Thomas Massie tweeted: “French President is a socialist militarist globalist science-alarmist… the dark future of the American Democratic Party.”
When another Twitter user called the tweet untruthful, the congressman added: “‘I will advocate for militarism in front of the Congress,’ Macron said.”
However, Macron said he would advocate for multilateralism — not militarism.
Massie’s office indicated to Raw Story that the militarism quote came from media reports about Macron’s interview on “Fox News Sunday,” which had inaccurately transcribed the French president.
