The assailant was quickly subdued and removed from the room, with Macron saying he would try to speak with him later.
“If he has something to tell me, let him come,” Macron said at the International Catering, Hotel and Food Trade Fair (SIRHA). “I’ll go see him afterwards.”
It was a startling disturbance of the warm welcome by fair attendees for the centrist president, not least after he announced that restaurant tips paid by credit card would no longer be taxed.
Eggs from irate protesters are a common occupational hazard for French politicians, and Macron is no exception.
When he was still a candidate for the presidency in 2017, an egg cracked against his head during a crowd visit at the national agriculture fair in Paris
