The On est en direct issue programmed by France 2 this Saturday, September 11, 2021 was marked by the promotion of Eric Zemmour’s new book.

At around 12:30 am, Eric Zemmour took to the talk stage, On est en direct, for an interview conducted by Laurent Ruquier and Léa Salamé on France 2. The discussion first focused on the presidential aspirations of the editorial writer of CNews before the sequel is about the release of his book “France has not said its last word”.

From the first minutes, Léa Salamé wished to sweep aside the ambiguities around a candidacy of the guest but the latter assured that he did not yet know if he would be a contender for the Elysee: “When I decide, I will say it. I’m thinking. For the moment, I have not officially decided […] I want to introduce myself because France is in an absolutely terrible state. The France that I love is disappearing “.

Laurent Ruquier, for his part, was quick to sting his former sniper by returning to the dismissal of the one who had formed a very feared duo with Eric Naulleau: “I have been hearing the same thing for several years and that is why “after five years I had had enough” said the host with a smile before a battle between the two men on the respective audiences of their talk. A Laurent Ruquier who will have tried to “trap” his former columnist on his presidential intentions without succeeding.

As for the other meetings, Josiane Balasko, Camille Chamoux, Jean-Michel Jarre, Eddy de Pretto, Olympic gold medalist in fencing Enzo Lefort and Serge Airoldi were received on the field.

This meeting convinced an average of 816,000 French people for a market share of 16.8%, which has soared by 5.3 points compared to last Saturday for the launch of the second season with Jean Castex. The Eric Zemmour effect worked perfectly with an audience drop at 1:30 am, when his nearly sixty-minute interview ended.
