    Invited by Cnews on February 18 to debate the escalation of violence in the marches, Gaspard Ganzer was keen to introduce the substance of his own intelligence.

    “I always paid attention to my language to comment on what has been happening with the Yellow Vests, but here we crossed the red line,” he said during the interview. “If we did IQ tests at the entrance of the demonstrations, there would not be many people”.

    The communication’s chief of of former French President François Hollande reacted to the altercations that had taken place on Sunday during a demonstration of a group of Yellow Vests at Place de l’Étoile.

    The rally was marked by the presence of Ingrid Levavasseur, one of the figures of the movement, and a salvo of insults directed at her. It became so bad that she had to be exfiltrated by the police. “Once we say that people can demonstrate, we cannot choose between the different demonstrators, this is the beauty of democracy,” explained Ganzer. Then he added: “They have the right to protest, even if they are idiots. That’s what’s wrong.”

    His clear contempt was not appreciated an old Yellow Vest, Hayk Shahinyan, present on the set of Cnews and for whom “this kind of statement does not calm things”. Although he admitted that he did not include everyone, Ganzer could not hide his contempt: “Excuse me, when I see this kind of images, I think I have to be hard.”

    Ganzer is a shady character. On the web, he has frequently been the subject of rumors. He was cited as responsible for the legal setbacks of François Fillon, a popular candidate who ran against Emannuel Macron in the last presidential elections.

    Ganzer, supposedly a Socialist, have also been accused of working for Macron to eliminate his rivals in the countryside.

    Ganzer never enjoys being filmed. When a news team of France 2 interviewed government officials, the communications advisor appeared in the picture and expressed his anger.
