But Laurence Rossignol's response was not long in coming, a few minutes later Sandrine Rousseau was tackled by Laurence Rossignol. ' This is a lie !

It's wrong! and this video proves it! No offense to him, I even received applause. '
This is a lie! Making believe that all women would have been whistled is manipulation (see video in my previous tweet). That @sandrousseau assumes its positions and does not seek to embark us, all, on its boat! https://t.co/2drHuvrGwx— Laurence Rossignol (@laurossignol) October 3, 2022
Refusing to admit what happened, Sandrine Rousseau hammered home on Twitter that she wasn't the only boo. ' There were whistles and applause. For everyone. Whistles were more important to @ManonAubryFr
