French politician and former presidential candidate Jean Lassalle accused French President Emmanuel Macron and his cronies of lying about their COVID vaccination status.
In an explosive interview with NTD on Sunday, Lassalle, who had represented the 4th constituency of the Pyrénées-Atlantiques department in the National Assembly from 2002 to June 21, 2022, revealed that the experimental COVID vaccine nearly killed him.
“I got the Johnson vaccine that almost killed me, that warped my heart. I have had four surgeries since January 3rd of this year,” Lassalle said. “And then there, it is in the Ambroise Paré clinic that the surgeon who trained with another one in the besides, succeeded in putting my auricles in place, except to make them function normally. Otherwise, I would certainly be dead.”
French MP Jean Lassalle who had 4 heart operations after his💉almost killed him says Mad Macron and most MPs aren’t vaxxed. (What a surprise!)

Lassalle, who ran for president in 2017 and received over 435,000 votes, explained that he took the COVID shot to set a good example for the French people, and claimed he was completely unaware that French President Emmanuel Macron and other top officials did not receive the jab.
“Because I was an MP and I didn’t want to give the feeling that I wasn’t doing my job. But I did not know that Emmanuel Macron was not vaccinated,” Lassalle said. “I did not know that most of the government members were not, and I did not know that many of my fellow MPs were not either. I wanted to set an example.”
“This was the time when Mr. Macron, Boris Johnson and all the others… encouraged everyone to get vaccinated,” he continued.
“I got sick and I said so during the election campaign, nobody listened and they wanted they wanted to silence me.”
Recall that Macron in January threatened to make the lives of the unvaccinated miserable until they relented and got the COVID jab.
“The unvaccinated, I really want to piss them off. And so, we’re going to continue doing so, until the end. That’s the strategy,” Macron said in an interview with Le Parisien.
“I won’t send (the unvaccinated) to prison, I won’t vaccinate by force. So we need to tell them, from Jan. 15, you won’t be able to go to the restaurant anymore, you won’t be able to down one, won’t be able to have a coffee, go to the theatre, the cinema…” he added.
Lassalle’s claims have sparked calls for a parliamentary investigation into the matter of Macron and French government officials’ vaccine status, according to French news outlet Putsch.
