The world is reveling in the fact that Emmanuel Macron has beaten his far-right opposition, Marine Le Pen, to become the next president of France. It was a heated election, as many young gay French men had surprisingly pledged their support to Le Pen.
Now, as Macron is settling into his role as the next French president, he has already been thrown into yet another heated debate, this time regarding his youthful, sexy appeal.
People have begun comparing Macron to a different young-and-attractive world leader, he with a booty sculpted by the gods: Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. This has led to an all-out Twitter war to decide who is the HFIC (Hottest Francophone In Charge).
It all started with Macron’s rise to power and many people getting to know his inherent sexiness (and the lack thereof in America’s current president).

Jokes were made about the newest hottie to join other world leaders.
Justin Trudeau has called Emmanuel Macron to concede in the race for Sexiest G7 Leader.

And then the question was posed.
@youngvulgarian Let’s just talk about the important issue now: who’s hotter, Macron or Trudeau?

The world knew this was not an easy decision to be made.

Many sided with Trudeau and his rugged Canadian appeal.

Until we see evidence that Macron’s behind is better I will not change my mind that Trudeau is far hotter. pic.twitter.com/aT49w6sd6G

While many were quick to dispute that, crowning Macron with the title.

But one thing everyone can agree on is that we can’t wait to see these two men in the same room, oozing their smoldering French charm and whispering sweet nothings to each other.
How is the internet going to cope when Macron & Trudeau eventually meet and discuss politics in French? ???

And in the meantime, we’ll just have to look to the internet to satisfy our urges.
Point me to the Trudeau and Macron slash fic
