I am trying to imagine what the people in the US or Canada or most countries would say or how they would react to the news that the leader of their country and spouse were both cheating on each other and not really trying to hide it. According to several French tabloids, Carla Bruni is not only cheating on her husband she is actually living with her new lover. He is Benjamin Biolay which is not a hand cream but is actually a singer. Supposedly the two fell in love when they decided to turn friendship into romance. Meanwhile, the President of France is enjoying some time with Chantal Jouanno who is in charge of the environment and also loves karate. Maybe the President likes it rough. The story is everywhere and there have been no attempts to stop it from spreading. No denials other than the usual perfunctory ones.
The great thing about the French media is that no one has even bothered to ask the President. They don't care. It isn't important to them what he does in his private life and they figure if he wants to talk about it he will. Above is a French link. If you would prefer an English based link, click here.
