Kirill Hanuna, his follies, his excesses, but above all… his audience. Several politicians assessed that the host of “Touche pas à mon poste” (“TPMP”) went too far by insulting an elected official of the Republic. La France insoumise (LFI) MP Louis Boyard was guilty, in his eyes, of having “on the carpet” by questioning “The hand that feeds him”, namely Vincent Bolloré, the owner of the channel he directs, C8. From right to left, almost everyone is ready to go back there, at a time when the part of France, young, popular, rural and peripheral, eludes them.

With this punishment as a bonus, “At this time, LFI is no longer invited to the set until further notice.”
The presenter put an end to the relationship that began in 2013: Jean-Luc Melenchon was one of the first political figures who went to his set. On Monday, November 14, the founder of LFI gave him at least a virtual release. “I’m not going to throw stones at him like everyone else”He said during a meeting in Clermont-Ferrand. The latter also knows what he is talking about when he says that the show is a showcase for the ultra-right. Renaud Labaye, Secretary General of the RN Group of the National Assembly, still remembers “The Big Show” in which Marine Le Pen participated during the campaign. “He was flawless”Judge the far-right official, who no longer adheres to the support of the channel Eric Zemor.
