Emmanuel Macron goes for the Zelensky look

Dressed in a hoodie bearing the logo of an elite parachute unit, or with his head in his hands as he deals with the current crisis, recent photos of President Macron at work bear an uncanny resemblance to other wartime leaders — but his critics are not convinced by the image being portrayed. “The Zelensky effect,” tweeted Raphael Grably, a reporter with BFM, the rolling news channel, in response to the series of photos taken on Sunday and published online by Soazig de la Moissonnière, 40, the president’s official photographer, showing an unshaven Macron in his office in the Elysée.
