Egg on his face: Macron splattered by protester on French campaign trail (VIDEO)

Egg on his face: Macron splattered by protester on French campaign trail (VIDEO)

French presidential candidate Emmanuel Macron was left with egg on his face while attending an agricultural show after a protester threw the produce at him, splattering the En Marche party member.

The confrontation happened while France’s former economy minister attended Salon International de l'Agriculture 2017 in Paris.

Footage of the incident shows the minister in conversation before being blindsided with the incoming egg. Members of his security team then rush to protect Macron and chase the food-firing protestor.

This is not the first time Macron has been egged, however. Last June Labour reform protesters pelted eggs at the former Rothschild banker outside a post office in Montreuil.

Macron is, meanwhile, reportedly building momentum on the campaign trail, edging closer to National Front Leader Marine Le Pen in the polls.

OpinionWay’s daily support poll for Wednesday leaves Le Pen just one point ahead of Macron in the first round voting.
