The previous president was shorter! These insults all socialists must endure. The French are no tall as a whole. Right wing activists are clearly losing the battle if they have to ridicule their president. It's the kind of idiocy we have here too.

There are many things wrong with the new French President's view of the world (his views on Europe, his demand for "Growth" or tax and spend as it's also known, his demand for higher taxes to pay for everything he wants to do, to name but a few) but making fun of someone for their height is a cruel and unnecessary thing to do.

It's not as if there's much he can do about it and ridiculing someone for something like that just shows the person who is doing it to be a coward and a bully.

Unless being a coward and a bully is something to proud of now?

Thank you. It's never particularly admirable to make fun of people, but for height?! Come on... That's something one can't possibly change.

Well, I guess it was an interesting way to spice up a boring story of Hollande on his first trip in office to the UK. It's good journalism comparing someone of average height like 5'7'' with giants of 6'4'' that have big bird's nests for hats as well, just to add a tad of height more.

Any media as juvenile to point out a sovereign nation's leader is short- is ridiculously out of ideas and maybe in need of some new editors. This is one of the dumbest stories ever.

Most nations militaries have an honor guard- with the specific requirement that the troops serving in that honor guard look impressive since they are on display. So the very tall, broad shouldered and most militaristic soldiers would be chosen to serve and be put on display.

Duh.
Can we get more info on actual news - and much less really elementary school stories like this? If another media outlet is running "French Prez is short stories" or French Prez had American cheese on a sandwich or something else equally dumb- how about you guys man up over there and not act like lemmings and come correct with actual story,,,

This is garbage you expect to see in a supermarket rag. Really huffpost?

"...Francois Hollande Is Short Standing Next To Guard Of Honor..."

And your point is, AOLHuffPo?

Come on. Surely there's a point to this story?

So a man is short. What of his character? What of his ideas?

Too short? Ridiculous. He's at least 1/2 inch taller than Queen Elizabeth II. The photo of him and the guards is hysterical.

Another embarrassment for France. Not only he is a cretin but he is short too. And you wonder why France is an Arab colony. Inch Allah

Most NATO country honor guards are tall men. 6'1 and up.
This article is infantile.

They should elect somebody like Arnie to be their President and send him in a ripped t-shirt to flex and intimidate the “girly man” Prime Minister Cameron. Apparently international affairs is now relegated to the editors of gossip rags and fashion magazines! What next?
