Valérie Pécresse launched in “Star Wars”
Two months before the first round of the election, which will take place on April 10, the presidential campaign is in full swing. Named “political personality of the year” by the jury of the Trombinoscope Prize, Valérie Pécresse tackled her political opponents by chaining cinematographic metaphors, this Thursday, February 10, 2022.
Candidate LR launched into a humorous speech during which she multiplied references to Star- Wars. If she did not mention the three opuses of the posology, Valérie Pécresse almost quoted all the titles of the original trilogy and the trilogy. On stage, she said:
This campaign is a bit star-warss, it’s a bit like war. (…) There is The Phantom Menace. It’s the left. There are The Empire Strikes Backe, it’s Macron. Finally still it would be necessary that the empire attacks… There is Attack of the Clones : Eric Zemmour and Marine Le Pen. (…) Well, you understood that I was Return of the Jedibecause I want to raise A new hopethe end of the saga.
A big fan of Star Wars?
A speech which could suggest that the president of the Regional Council of Île-de-France disavows Star Wars Episode VII: The Force Awakens Star-Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi and Star-Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker along with many fans.
Valérie Pécresse is not at his first hint to the universe created by George Lucas. In 2015, she had suitable for many times the famous replica “May the force be with you” in particular at the microphone of France Inter as well as at the regional council of Île-de-France.
