We’re live: Jean Castex treats Léa Salamé as a “trainee” and wishes his wife a happy birthday

the essential
Prime Minister Jean Castex was the guest of “On est en direct”, the program of Laurent Ruquier and Léa Salamé, Saturday evening on France 2.

For the return of his show “On est en direct”, Laurent Ruquier welcomed Léa Salamé, who will now host the show alongside him on Saturday evening. It also hosted Prime Minister Jean Castex who was participating in the show for the first time.

Comfortable on the set, pedagogue, Jean Castex regularly called the presenters by their first names Laurent and Léa. If the atmosphere was relaxed, the Prime Minister qualified Léa Salamé as a “trainee”: a word which surprised the journalist who pouted but did not respond to this formulation. “She’s a very good intern,” said Jean Castex exactly, addressing Laurent Ruquier. The Prime Minister was probably referring to his first participation as co-host of the show.

“A very good intern …” I sensed that Léa Salamé was about to say “fuck you” to Castex ud83d ude05. #OEED

At the end of the interview, Laurent Ruquier thanked Jean Castex for his visit, specifying that the Prime Minister’s wife was celebrating her birthday on Saturday September 4 and offered to Jean Castex to wish his wife a happy birthday. “Happy birthday darling! I’m coming,” said Jean Castex all smiles.

During the show, Jean Castex spoke about the health crisis, the mobilization of antivaccines or even the probable candidacy of Eric Zemmour for the presidential election in 2022. Eric Zemmour will also be the political guest of “We are live” next Saturday.
