Guest of the program presented by Yann Barthès, Édouard Philippe, the former prime minister and current mayor of Le Havre, was questioned on many subjects, from pension reform to police violence, including the place of culture in this context. current and also his physical appearance.

And if the woman is known to deal with sexual issues

"not to mention ass"

in "Daily", she now addresses the two diseases, Vitiligo and Alopecia, which Édouard Philippe suffers from.

“For a few years, your political action has sometimes been parasitized by your appearance, which changes quickly and which arouses a lot of curiosity on the part of the French”

, begins the columnist.

“I started boxing when my father died”

She then underlines that the former Prime Minister of Emmanuel Macron had the courage, rare, to speak about his pathologies.

“I would have liked someone to explain to me how I could not have talked about it.

“No, no, everything is fine”


It's obvious, it shows [...] I'm not going to put on a wig.

I am lucky, this depigmentation of the skin and this loss of my eyebrows, of my beard, of my hair, it occurs at 50 years old.

It doesn't matter,”

he asserts lucidly, adding later:

“It's neither painful, nor contagious, nor dangerous.

I tell you, do what you want with it.

If you think it pisses me off, well, I can't help it because it's mine, as Johnny would say


If you think you have to be a playboy in France to be elected, I still have some counter-examples

Edward Philip

Maïa Mazaurette also notes that Édouard Philippe seems to compensate for his illness by practicing – in the media – sport and boxing in particular.

"I tell myself that it is perhaps not by chance that if faced with an illness that refers to old age, weakness and devirilization, you practice a sport of endurance, strength and combat"

, declares cash the columnist.

And although he finds the comparison interesting, the mayor of Le Havre wishes to clarify a detail which is not one.

“I started boxing when my father died, simply because it shook me

,” he replies aside.

The 52-year-old can only say, however, that appearance and body matter in political life.

He recalls that it is a job of image, seduction and incarnation while tempering his comments.

“Ok the physical in politics, that counts but as in all other subjects, I trust the common sense and intelligence of our fellow citizens.

[...] And then after if you think that it is necessary to be playboy in France to be elected, I nevertheless have some against-examples

, launches Edouard Philippe, sentence starting the hilarity of the plate.
