A different understanding of laissez-faire:
Which brings me to the core of this piece: the French, their political leaders, and sex. With the publication of a new biography of the French president’s live-in mistress, Valérie Trierweiler—or Rottweiler, as her enemies dub her—it emerges that President Hollande, while living with the mother of his four children, Ségolène Royal, was sharing the Rottweiler with one Patrick Devedjian, a man of Armenian descent and a close friend of ex-president Nicolas Sarkozy. I know, I know, you’re getting confused. I’ll start again. Hollande is living and having children with Ségolène, but on the side he’s knocking off the Rottweiler, who is cheating on him with an Armenian. Does that make it any clearer?
