“Since that day, I have never spoken to him again”: David Pujadas recounts his falling out with Nicolas Sarkozy

the essential
Saturday January 14, David Pujadas returned to his anger with Nicolas Sarkozy.

Nicolas Sarkozy obviously still wants David Pujadas for a question asked in 2016, during the debate in the primary of the right. The host had at the time asked him if his 2007 presidential campaign had been financed by Libya, as the businessman Ziad Takieddine had claimed.

Outraged, Nicolas Sarkozy had then replied to him: “You are not ashamed to echo a man who has been in prison and who is a liar. This is not the idea that I have of public service. What a shame !”

Guest on the show “We redo the TV” on RTL, Saturday January 14, David Pujadas returned to this anger. “Since that day, I have never spoken to Nicolas Sarkozy again. Never. He remained angry,” revealed the presenter.

“I know his lawyer and I know some of his relatives. So, from time to time, I ask them if he is still sulking. And, yes. He is convinced that, in particular, this sequence made him lose the primary of the right in 2016 and, shortly before, another interview that we had done on Libya and on Bygmalion”, added David Pujadas.
