    This is a political guy, hope it's not against the rules, if it is plz delete.

    Setup: guy that failed to get elected as president, now comes out of hiding and bashes someone who is currently running for president via a speech broadcasted over Facebook.

    Ignore the speech (it's boring as f*ck anyways), just look at the comments from his follower base for maximum LOLz. It's the first post on the FB page linked below. Something tells me he won't be posting anything else so it should stay as the first post

    Hello,

    I could watch another fucking spectacular social media backfire. French president, Hollande, is not popular: surveys say it, media say it and people say it. When he goes outside, it's always with policemen, bodyguards, ... and he is insulted.

    Recently, he visited the enterprise Showroomprive, which makes private sales on internet. And he made ... a periscope. With a "a posteriori" moderation.

    Yes.


    A public man, who is hated by a lot of people, makes a periscope. You guess what happened ?

    He was trolled to death. French president was trolled, insulted, despised publicly:

    You can see a short video of his periscope with the trolls:

    How can people with money, power and staff be so stupid? They don't think before using social media or what?

    Is it a bad thing to not know who this guy is? Or, more importantly is it a bad thing to completely avoid politics? Other than of course our favorite all time troll Donald Trump. Watching him is like watching a really good comedy, except it's all real. :ridinghor

    If you are a public figure you can't say anything on social media without offending somebody.

    John Oliver had a good section of his show related to a clothing company that featured a feminist in it's catalog. it pissed off half of it's consumers who vowed not to buy anything from them. So they immediately pulled the article, which pissed off the other half. That's how you destroy your business overnight.
