Marine Le Pen makes it to 2nd round of French election, with Emmanuel Macron as rival

The results of the first round are in, with some results giving Le Pen nearly 4 percent more in results than Emmanuel Macron. I'll have to admit, it's a shame that Francois Fillon didn't make it, because Macron's proven himself untrustworthy already.

Yet Fillon, in his defeat, isn't making a good impression upon himself, if, according to the reports I've seen, he said he'd support Macron in the second round. Does Fillon actually believe in his own platform, or doesn't he? Yes, I think it's idiotic to just go and throw support behind somebody who's bound to be an extension of Hollande's own disastrous government.

For now, we have to hope Marine Le Pen can win the presidency on the second round, and that nobody will be fooled by Macron's own deceptions.
