Republicans MEP unleashes Twitter storm after comments about black Minister

French MEP Nadine Morano did not appreciate the statements by her black colleague Sibeth N'Diaye and she has made it known. Her comments unleashed a massive Twitter storm.

    According to Morano, nobody wants to hear silly government statements from people like N’Diaye clad “in circus dress”.

    The Senegalese Ndiaye is a communications advisor, and appointed as official Government Spokeswoman by President Emmanuel Macron. She was in charge of Macron’s press relations during the 2017 presidential election and joined his cabinet in the Élysée Palace after he was elected.

    She obtained French nationality only three years ago, “visibly with major shortcomings in French culture and unworthy of this government function in France,” tweeted Morano, the MEP for the Republicans, attracting the wrath of supporters of the government.

    The boss of the LREM deputies, Gilles Le Gendre denounced the “openly racist remarks […] unworthy of a politician”, calling on the Republican MEP to “present [her] apologies”. Other LREM deputies chimed in too: “The circus is the noise you make to run after the extreme right,” Macronista Aurore Bergé tweeted.

    Alexandre Benalla himself attacked Morano, at least from a Twitter account affiliated with his name, but not certified. The former disgraced chargé de mission of the Elyseé Palace described the MEP as “the real clown of the politico-media circus”.

    But Morano dryly responded: “The government is saved, Alexandre Benalla ensures the protection of the spokesperson.”

    Earlier, a French columnist Zohra Bitan, had also mocked the “completely off outfits” and the “haircut without styling” of Sibeth N’diaye. But Marlène Schiappa, a French politician serving as the Secretary of Equality between women and men since 17 May 2017 defended the French-Senegalese Minister. “Seriously, in 2019 are we still worried that a woman of African origin does not smooth or hide her hair?”

    Nadine Morano tweeted in response: “Do not say anything because she is black, right?”

    Morano was elected Member of the European Parliament in the 2014 European elections, representing East France. She has since been serving on the Committee on Industry, Research and Energy. In addition to her committee assignments, she is a member of the Parliament’s delegation for relations with the Pan-African Parliament (PAP).

    In September 2015, Morano quoted General Charles de Gaulle, saying that “France is a Judeo-Christian country, of white race”. This resulted in her removal as head of the Les Républicains (the former UMP) list for the regional elections in Meurthe-et-Moselle.
