The decor is foggy, at the top of the illustrious rock where Nicolas Sarkozy stands, this January 15, 2007. The presidential race begins, and it is Mont-Saint-Michel that the UMP candidate chooses as the cradle of his campaign. A highly symbolic place, which must “carry the idea that France is not over”, then declared the future president. Fifteen years later, it is at the foot of this same rock that we find ourselves. In the middle of a field, feet in the mud, Eric Zemmour in turn leans against Mont-Saint-Michel to evoke “the power of France”. As if to pass from one tutelary figure to another. After François Fillon and the “Trocadero spirit”, it is with the Sarkozyist campaign of 2007 that the candidate wants to identify.
