Twitter users lashed out at the French MEP for her comments, with one user saying of her appearance: “How condescending can you get?”
The same user added: “loved the bit where she explains that her boss Macron should be too busy this weekend to meet up in person with anybody from Britain. Because he needs to save the planet.”
Ms Clapot actually replied to the comment, defending her appearance on the BBC show.
She said: “A MP is elected by citizens, independently from the President. I support President Emmanuel Macron and I am part of his majority. BUT he isn’t my boss.”
