For the premiere of Quelle époque, the new program by Léa Salamé and Christophe Dechavanne, broadcast this Saturday, September 24, the duo will receive Jean-Luc Mélenchon. The latter is however rare in the media since the scandal of the Quatennens affair. So how did the journalist manage to convince him?
Philippe Vandel received in the studios of Culture Médias, broadcast on Europe 1 this Friday, September 23, journalist Léa Salamé, as well as host Christophe Dechavanne. They came to present a new show called what timethe premiere of which will be broadcast this Saturday, September 24 at 11:10 p.m. on France 2. And for this premiere, the duo hit hard for their guests: Jean-Paul Rouve, Yann Moix, Laurence Ferrari and even Jean-Luc Melenchon. The presence of the latter among the guests surprised Philippe Vandel since the politician has reportedly refused all invitations since La France insoumise, the party he leads, is in turmoil following the Quatennens affair. “How did you convince him to come on set?”then questions the journalist from Europe 1.
“She slept”loose Christophe Dechavanne. “I went to bed”, resumed Léa Salamé, bursting out laughing. And to add: “I slept with Jean-Luc Mélenchon, I wanted to tell you, that’s how I got him for the first time!”Raphaël Glucksmann’s companion then resumed her seriousness: “The truth is thatwe had launched it long before all that (Editor’s note: the Quatennens affair)we launched it at the end of the summer (…) I think he wants to talk, I think Mélenchon likes to do the premieres, unlike others who wait to see if it’s good to come etc. He likes to take risks. Quite honestly, I knew he was coming two weeks ago so we were already very happy to have him. It is true that with the Quatennens affair, there will be an even greater stake.“ When the handrail deposited by the wife of Adrien Quatennens was made public, Léa Salamé however admitted having had doubts on the appearance of the president of LFI on his show: “Of course, I was afraid that he would cancel, I’m not going to lie to you, I was afraid that he would cancel when the Quatennens affair broke out a week ago, I said to myself: ‘Is he going to go?’ We called his press secretary who told us: ‘He’s maintaining, he’s going.'”
Jean-Luc Mélenchon strongly criticized
As a reminder, Jean-Luc Mélenchon was strongly criticized at the beginning of the week after his tweet of support for Adrien Quatennens while the LFI deputy had justconfess to domestic violence against his wife who he is divorcing. Remarks that the leader of La France Insoumise maintained, this Thursday, September 22, in front of a journalist from Daily. The latter asked him if he regretted the tweets he had published. Jean-Luc Mélenchon then replied: “Sir, I weigh my words all the time. You’re the one who regrets what you’re saying to me.” Speaking to the journalist, the politician had an inappropriate gesture touching her cheek. A behavior that also made a lot of talk…
It’s not the first time that Léa Salamé lets go live. Accustomed to the serious tone of the journalist, the listeners of France Inter had already been surprised, last March. After a column on the sexual practices of certain animalsGabriel’s mother then chanted in the radio studios: “Ass, ass, ass!” Words that had caused hilarity among his colleagues. And surprising the public is precisely the objective that Léa Salamé has set for her new program on France 2. The presenter indicated that viewers will discover her under another lookespecially when she receives political figures on the set of Quelle epoque: “Political shows, political interviews, I do so many all the time, we will also try to do a slightly different political interview with Mélenchon and with the other guests. “ And to detail: “That is to say with slightly sequenced questions, talk about something other than pure news etc This is also what seduced him, that is to say that it is not the morning interview on France Inter or on Europe 1 or the Great political program of France 2. There, we will try , and it’s also where I’m going to test myself, to do something different from the interview I do every day. What I’m waiting to see is also Dechavanne against Mélenchon, that intrigues me, that interests me, I want to see.” To find out, see you this Saturday, September 24 at 11:10 p.m. on France 2!
