Francois Hollande is so unpopular, he's not running for reelection

The presidential incumbent in France is so loathed by the public, he's decided to retire:
French President Francois Hollande announced Thursday he will not be running for reelection, capping an overwhelming political collapse since being elected five years ago.

Hollande, a member of the Socialist Party, is the most unpopular president France has had since World War II. Even in 2013, just a year after taking power, his approval ratings dropped to below 30 percent. By 2016, public disapproval with his performance approached a staggering 90 percent. Hollande was weighed down by a stagnant economy and repeated Islamic terror attacks. Hollande’s tenure was also marked by a 75 percent income tax on incomes over one million euros, which he was forced to repeal after just two years.

Foreseeing likely annihilation in next April’s presidential election, Hollande announced in a televised address Thursday night he will be stepping down after a single term. In the address, Hollande said he was “aware of the risks” that his candidacy would not be able to rally much of the public behind it, and had consequently decided to drop out.
Another serious error his government made was demanding that Israeli products from Judea/Samaria be labeled, in complete contradiction of the rulings that anti-Israel boycotts constituted incitement. I can only figure he and his ilk are so full of despicable positions on Israel, they're willing to go out with a severe whimper on that topic as much as any other. It's like he/they want to be hated, and cause their country only so much embarrassment.

Hollande won't be missed, and should be ostracized by the public in France for all the misery he contributed on his part.
