“Everything is done so that you have your retirement”: Brigitte Macron wants to calm down with the youngest
Brigitte Macron said on the TF1 set at 8pm Monday 9 January that she was optimistic about the French reaction to the pension reform project.
In the face of the hard-fought pension reform project that the government presented today, Brigitte Macron trusts in the adaptability of the French. Invited to TF1’s 8 p.m. set this Monday to launch Operation Yellow Pieces 2023, the first lady wanted to be reassuring.
“All I can say is that the French have always responded positively when in trouble,” she said, before drawing a parallel with the health crisis. Referring to “barrier gestures” and “containment”, Brigitte Macron emphasized: “The French have always adapted”.

The First Lady also wanted to reassure some “young people” who say they are convinced they will never have a pension. “Everything will be done so that you have your retirement,” she assured.
More broadly, Brigitte Macron said she played the role of a “passerby” with her husband, the President of the Republic. “I hear the criticism” and “I carry the messages,” she stated, particularly in relation to the hospital’s crisis and the demands of caregivers. “I would never allow myself, ‘be careful, do this, do that’, but I pass it on to him.”
According to the First Lady, Emmanuel Macron is approaching this second five-year term like the first: “It started with a bang”. When he “adapts to the situation,” he “remains basically […] who he always was,” she said.
