Markus Söder observes the 0-1 defeat of the Germans in the European Championship game against France live in the Allianz Arena, cheers on the team via Instagram - and provokes prominent mockers.

Munich - You almost have to feel sorry for the Bavarian Prime Minister.

At least on Instagram.

It is a post that couldn't be more innocent that Markus Söder * drops it off from the Allianz Arena grandstand at around 8.45 p.m.

Completely apart from Corona * and Bayern politics *, Söder conveys at most anticipation for the German national team's first EM game *.

"The countdown is on: We keep our fingers crossed for our team 😀 My tip: 2: 1 for Germany", writes Söder about the selfie with the field and city in the background.

But the controversial CSU boss is apparently not allowed to be a private person even when watching the EM.

At least if he posts it on Instagram and has such prominent followers as SPD Corona expert Karl Lauterbach * and ZDF-heute-show comedian Fabian Köster.

The latter has been following Söder very actively on Instagram for a long time, especially while Söder was on vacation in Bavaria and under the beautiful hashtag “södergram” he converts almost every Söder post into sometimes funnier and sometimes less funnier memes.

Of course, Köster doesn’t miss the EM-Post either.

“If necessary, sprint onto the field and bait France away!” He writes under the Söder-Post, even before the Greenpeace parachute lands on the field.

And of course there is also a meme: "We lost the game, but I drank the French under the table all night, so all in all a victory, LG Maggus", Köster titled Söder's latest Insta selfie on Wednesday morning, on which he drinks from one of his eye-catching motto cups - probably coffee.

As everyone knows, humor is a matter of taste.

Especially since Markus Söder is really not a fan of alcohol at all.

However, Söder bashing has been given a new quality by Karl Lauterbach. As is well known, the SPD politician and health expert has advanced to become one of the most prominent German publicists and talk show regular guest through his mostly accurate forecasts during the corona pandemic - one might say: a cross-generational over-influencer. Accordingly, his tweets have a wide reach. And Lauterbach uses his reach on Tuesday evening after the lost European Championship game for a probably funny attack on Markus Söder: "I also bet 2: 1 for Germany", Lauterbach writes via Twitter. “Instead it could have ended 3-0 against us. @Markus_Soeder is clearly to blame. It sucked the enthusiasm and creativity of our team ... "

Twitter: Karl Lauterbach makes fun of Söder-Post after the EM game

I also bet 2: 1 for Germany.

Instead, it could have ended 3-0 against us.

@Markus_Soeder is clearly to blame.

It sucked the enthusiasm and creativity of our team ... https://t.co/GKCtXey5dS

Markus Söder should be to blame for the German EM defeat?

Even Söder's worst critics would not go that far.

Here, too, you can certainly argue about the humor content.

However, many Twitter users celebrate the fact that Lauterbach attacks Söder like that.

Others don't understand the joke.

Was Söder-bashing a team effort?

Lauterbach and Köster know each other well from the show today

Perhaps the whole action was also a team effort. Because Köster and Lauterbach are old friends. As fans of the

ZDF

format know very well, the two often appeared as a duo in the

heute-show

, so often that presenter Oliver Welke already runs Karl Lauterbach as a “freelancer”.

And so Söder and Lauterbach have at least one thing in common: a certain desire for public perception can probably be assumed by both.

In conclusion: If you read Lauterbach's tweet again carefully, you could understand it as hidden praise for the Swiss franc.

Because if Söder finally "sucks" all creativity out of the German team, as Lauterbach writes, the Bavarian Prime Minister should be brimming with it now.
