Marine Le Pen is leading in the exit polls in the French presidential election, THE FEMALE DONALD TRUMP IS LEADING, FLIP ALL PANCAKES AND PANIC. I hope the French people won’t make the same mistake we did in USA. Nazis groups are rising all through Europe as well I'm so scared :(

Apparently they’re doing a runoff in June. God😒😔

There were 100,000 votes for Harambe.

If you think voting is a fucking joke, then you should renounce your citizenship because you have no business helping to determine the future of this country.

People fought and died for the right to vote, and you made a fucking joke out of it.

It looks like Macron’s going to come slightly ahead of Le Pen in the first round and then thrash her in the second round in May!

I preferred Melenchon but Macron’s acceptable. A Macron presidency would certainly stop the “inevitable Trump/Brexit nationalist anti-liberal rise” narrative dead in its tracks. 

Bonne chance, France!

Who else was on Hellsite™ the night of the 2012 election?

There was so much excitement and optimism, because our mans Obama had beaten Romney, and the whole dash was unironic celebratory memes.  Gifs of superheroes dancing and all that.

Now it just feels like we’re older and everything sucks.  Just ironic jokes about how Jeb or Bernie could still win, distracting us from the reality of two deplorable candidates we’d love to forget

French election 2017: Emmanuel Macron elected youngest ever president in landslide victory over Marine Le Pen

Emmanuel Macron has been elected as the new president of France.

The 39-year-old Centrist defeated former National Front leader Marine Le Pen with 65.5 per cent of votes to just 35.5 per cent.

Presidential election polls hailed Macron as the victor in Sunday’s vote shortly after polling stations closed at 8pm.

Le Pen called Macron to congratulate him on his victory and concede defeat shortly after voting closed and the projected results were announced.

In a speech immediately after the results were announced, Le Pen added that she would call for a new political force as legislative elections loom in June.

She also hinted her party may rename itself from the National Front, which has been dogged by allegations of racism and anti-Semitism since it was founded by her father.

A turn-out of 63 per cent was recorded at 5pm (4pm BST) following a turbulent campaign battle that divided the country.

In a speech at his campaign headquarters he said a “new page of our history” had opened for France and vowed to “defend France and Europe”.

Macron will address supporters in the courtyard at the Louvre, Paris, to celebrate his victory.

The area was evacuated earlier on Sunday following reports of a suspicious package.

Theresa May was quick to congratulate Macron on his victory.

A Downing Street spokesman said: “The Prime Minister warmly congratulates President-elect Macron on his election success.

"France is one of our closest allies and we look forward to working with the new President on a wide range of shared priorities.”

A spokesman for German Chancellor Angela Merkel tweeted: “Congratulations Emmanuel Macron. Your victory is a victory for a strong united Europe and for the Franco-German friendship”.

The European council president, Donald Tusk, has also tweeted his congratulations.

Congratulations @EmmanuelMacron. Congratulations to French people for choosing Liberty, Equality and Fraternity over tyranny of fake news.

Outgoing president Francois Hollande congratulated Mr Macron and said his victory shows the overwhelming majority of voters rallied behind the European Union and openness to the world.

In a tweet, Donald Trump said: “Congratulations to Emmanuel Macron on his big win today as the next President of France. I look very much forward to working with him.”

A White House statement praised Mr Macron and the French people for “their successful presidential election” and said the United States looks forward to “continuing our close relationship with the French government”.

Jubilant supporters of Macron in London hugged each other as the banker’s figure beamed on to a screen, confirming him as the next French president.

Campaigners and voters for his En Marche movement, gathered at a central London pub, were tense with anticipation in the minutes running up to the result.

Within seconds of the exit poll being revealed, many were tweeting their joy at the victory of France’s youngest candidate to win the presidency.

Student Arjun Alim, 20, said: “I’m absolutely thrilled, I think it’s brilliant for France and Britain.

"It’s finally time for someone other than a right-wing populist to take the stand.”

“It doesn’t matter who you support for President. You should still want a legitimate and accountable system. Because, until we have that, we have nothing! We have the meaningless façade of Democracy. Until we get that, this is not over.” - Redacted Tonight with Lee Camp [#103]

“Do you mind if I sit back a little? Because your breath is very bad.”

- Donald J. Trump
