Markus Söder visits the Alps.
So far, so spectacular.
At the same time, Bavaria's state father turns to the people with an important concern.
But these sentences mutate into an own goal.
Munich - During these weeks there is always an election campaign.
And above all, everywhere.
Nobody seems to internalize that better than Markus Söder, who goes to great lengths for his CSU - and maybe even a little for Union Chancellor candidate Armin Laschet.
These days the Bavarian Prime Minister is honoring the Alps with his presence.
Equipped with a mountain rescue jacket, helmet, climbing rope and the right hand tool, Söder climbs the mountains in the south of his empire.
Between bare peaks and lush greenery at his feet, the proud man from Nuremberg strides up to unimagined heights.
Just as he hopes for his party in the federal election on September 26th.
Söder in the Alps: At the summit, CSU boss draws attention to climate change
And so he proclaims the important message - surrounded by three mountain companions.
“Our Alps are a treasure of nature”, Söder writes about his Instagram post, garnished with four photos: “Unfortunately, they are threatened by climate change: glaciers are melting and the permfrost is disappearing.
We have to preserve this nature and protect it from new disasters. "
Well roared, Söder!
Unfortunately, he has forgotten that until the flood disasters of the past few weeks, his party did not exactly push itself forward when measures to curb climate change were being fought for.
Which the father of the family is promptly smeared on bread in the comments.

Söder in the Alps: Users do not believe the new climate path for him
One user asks: "Why wasn't everything tried in the last 16 years when the Union was in power to protect its 'beloved' Alps from climate change?" when the greens are in your neck.
This user even makes a specific suggestion: "How about first of all tilting the clearance area regulation for wind turbines in Bavaria to show that these are not just empty words?"
Söder in the Alps: Users miss their most important piece of clothing
Here, too, there is a verbal bang: “As good as I think your message is, I wonder why you are only now getting around the corner with climate policy.
Even if you read the party program, you unfortunately have to realize that your plans do not go far enough at all. "
Others miss Söder's favorite piece of clothing during the corona pandemic: the FFP2 mask with the Bavarian logo.
Maybe the air up there was a little too thin.
There are no excuses when it comes to choosing your leg dress.
Because according to a user, Söder exposed himself as a greenhorn on the mountain.
He stated: "Only people who NEVER go hiking in jeans go hiking." For example, campaign hikers.
