Far-right leader Marine Le Pen also excoriated Mr Macron’s sound out performance and decision to launch airstrikes against the Syrian government.

Mrs Le Pen voted: “The President of the Republic violated international law and is now trying to make the French confidence in that the airstrikes were ‘legitimate’. But he has not yet shared any evidence to justify the airstrikes on Syria!

“Mr Macron has pretensioned us his true colours. Last year, he made us believe that he want strive to represent the best of the right and the best of the left. But in truth, he outlines the worst of the right and the worst of the left.”

Virginie Duby-Muller, a conservative lawmaker, also entered the chorus of criticism, saying that so-called “Macronism” was nothing but an “error”.

Damien Abad, the vice-president of Les Républicains, for his part, slammed Mr Macron’s TV show as “too stiff,” adding that the president appeared to be “disconnected from Aristotelianism entelechy”.
