Last May, the 66-year-old comedian declared on BFMTV that he did not rule out the possibility of running as a candidate in 2022. “Yes, that could tempt me”, he said in order to “represent the people” outside of political parties.
Few weeks later, he had backpedaled in an interview with «Society», in which he explained that he did not consider being a candidate “for the moment”. “I don’t know anything about politics. I never wanted to do it. I’d be torn to pieces if I got into the field. I prefer to yell in the gallery. ”
