A truck driver dumped a massive pile of horse manure outside France’s National Assembly today in protest of the political elite, reports Agence France-Presse.
The driver dumped the load from a truck labeled “Out with Hollande and the whole political class!” at the front gates of the Palais Bourbon which hosts the lower house Assembly.
He was later arrested and is likely facing charges.
French president François Hollande has not been a stranger to controversy as of late.
Earlier this week, French Closer magazine reported that the president was having an affair with a mistress.
Additionally, Hollande, who is a socialist, pushed for a 75% tax on “high earners” in France, which was approved by a top court last month.
