The jury for the 2022 “Press club, humor and politics” prize on Monday selected a second series of six “little sentences” uttered by politicians to reward the author of the funniest protrusion of the year.

The jury, chaired by Olivier de Lagarde (France Info), selected:

Rachida Dati, former minister, mayor of the 7th arrondissement of Paris, speaking to Anne Hidalgo: “Your presence at the Council of Paris is as anecdotal as your score in the presidential election”. At the Paris Council – 05/31/2022

Jean Lassalle, former presidential candidate: “I am a candidate because otherwise I would not have known who to vote for”. BFMTV – 01/04/2022

Edouard Philippe, former Prime Minister, Mayor of Le Havre on Jean-Luc Mélenchon: “It takes a certain audacity for someone who was beaten in an election where he was a candidate to think that he will be elected in an election where he is not a candidate!” South West – 05/29/2022

Sandrine Rousseau, MP for Paris: “I would like there to be a possibility of a crime of not sharing household chores”. Miss ? 03/21/2022

André Santini, former minister, mayor of Issy-les-Moulineaux: “My party supports Valérie Pécresse because she is committed to extending metro line 12 to the Meudon bridge”. Point ? 03/25/2022

Richard Ferrand, former President of the National Assembly: “Elisabeth Borne is great but nobody knows it”. Chained Duck – 06/22/2022

A first selection of eight “small phases” took place in March. A final selection will take place in October.

The “Press club, humor and politics” prize rewards the author of the most hilarious sentence of the year, whether it is indiscriminately voluntary or involuntary humor.

It was won in 2021 by Minister Marlène Schiappa who, in defending her bill to fight against polygamy, had seen fit to specify: “We are not going to forbid threesomes”.
