Karl Lagerfeld, the creative director for Chanel, has accused President Francoise Hollande of destroying France’s economy by taxing the rich. He even went as far as to call the Socialistic leader an “idiot”!
“This idiot will be as disastrous as Zapatero was,” Lagerfeld said in an interview with the Spanish edition of glossy fashion magazine Marie Claire published on Friday.
“It’s a disaster. He wants to punish (the rich) and of course they leave and no one invests,” he said. “Foreigners don’t want to invest in France and that’s just not going to work.”
“Outside of fashion, jewelery, perfume and wine, France isn’t competitive,” Lagerfeld said. “The rest of our products don’t sell. Who buys French cars? I don’t.”
Dr. Mr. Lagerfeld,
Please come to the US and explain your concept. Your vision is profound! Better yet, please run for President. You’ve got my vote!
PS And while you’re here, stop by my store (Roadkill Ranch & Boutique in Fullerton), I have something for you!
