The man, Damien Tarel, attacked the president on Tuesday when Emmanuel Macron was visiting voters during a visit to Tain-l’Hermitage outside the city of Valence.
– Montjoie and Saint-Denis! Down with macronism, Tarel shouted as he gave the left-liberal president an ear file.
The former is a reference to a medieval battle cry.
Damien Tarel is said to be a right-wing sympathizer who is close to the Yellow Vests movement. He stated in court that he had acted impulsively.
– When I saw his friendly, lying look, which sought me as a voter, I was filled with disgust, Tarel explained according to BBC News.
However, the prosecutor claimed that it was, on the contrary, an “intentional act of violence” and demanded one and a half years in prison.
The court sentences Damien Tarel to 18 months in prison, but 14 of the 18 months are conditional.
