This Dude Perfectly Explained Why He's Totally Fucking Sick Of The French Election

"Like this is 2017, you can’t be that stupid."

On Monday this week, a worker's protest in Paris turned violent after anarchists and antifascists started throwing Molotov cocktails at police.

BuzzFeed News covered the protest live. You can watch a video about it above.

Many of the young people at the march came out to protest not one, but both of France's presidential candidates. A 25-year-old Parisian named Gabriel jumped on BuzzFeed News' livestream and explained exactly what he thinks is wrong with the election.

Just a note: A "liberal" in France refers to a candidate that supports lower taxes, fewer labor rules, and less state influence.

(Just a little context for you.)

Benoît Hamon, candidate for France's Socialist party, came in fifth in the first round of the election, disqualifying him from the final round. Hamon is a member of the same party as the current French president, François Hollande. Now that Hamon and the far-left candidate Jean-Luc Mélenchon are no longer in the running, many young French people feel the same way as Gabriel and plan to abstain from voting again on May 7 out of protest.

CORRECTION

Benoît Hamon was the candidate for, but not the head of, the French Socialist party. A previous version of this article misstated that.
