“A meeting with Barack Obama is a totally exceptional moment. Whatever his record, he will remain as one of the icons of the beginning of the 21st century. I believe that he is a writer. He brought to the table politics a new sensibility “, estimates Tuesday, November 17 on franceinfo the journalist of France 5 François Busnel, whose interview with the former American president was broadcast Tuesday evening on France 2.
“What remains striking is the extreme humility. Barack Obama never takes you down. He is naturally a beast of stage with a formidable charismatic power intact and enormous convictions pegged to the body that come to him from his readings “, he adds.
“Barack Obama is one of those very rare statesmen who, when he takes up his pen, seeks less to carve a kind of marble, but rather to try to understand the gap between the presidential office and the man who occupies and it’s exciting “, concludes François Busnel.
