Following the publication of a photo taken last week, French President Emmanuel Macron instantly became the world’s biggest vaping celebrity, easily leapfrogging past lesser lights like Leonardo DiCaprio and Katy Perry.
The image, apparently taken by Macron’s official photographer, shows the unshaven French leader heading to his office with a stack of files.
He’s wearing a black hoodie with the insignia of an elite French commando unit, and carrying a vape device, almost (but not quite!) hidden in his right hand. (The image is shown in both tweets below.)
Philippe Poirson, writing in his blog Vapolitique, notes that, vaper or not, Macron has done little to correct public misperceptions about vaping during his first presidential term.
