“For the moment, Eric Zemmour is polemicist, journalist, writer”, he continued, wondering: “What is his program?”. “He is hiding behind his many hats and he does not intend, for the moment, to declare himself for the Presidency of the Republic, because if he does, what will you say to him? Beh what is your program ?”

Eric Dupond-Moretti, who was the lawyer for Mohammed Merah’s brother, also reacted to Eric Zemmour’s comments on the Jewish victims of the Toulouse and Montauban attacks in 2012. The polemicist had criticized the choice of the Sandler family to have their children buried in Israel.
