Hi! Still French here!
For the most part, we don't like american politics in general (you know, ultra capitalism and all that... and sometimes resent it when some americans make jokes about us being lazy) and the way you seem to go to war on frequent bases in places of the world you have nothing to do (but we do the same so yeah.... at best, we suffer from a severe case of bad faith !).
Also, old school people resent what you call food because I'll be honest : we are super intense with our food. Case on point, war on McDonalds in my country. But we lost this one too (a french speciality, losing wars...) and we now binge burgers and bagels like any other country in the world.
But except for old farts still clinging on their view of the world from when the internet and international television didn't exist (and some legit traumas from the Liberation for some of them), we love America, we love american television and you are more than welcome to visit us!
We cheared and cry of joy when Obama was elected the first time. We cried with you when Trump was elected. We are very afraid of the things to come too, for you and for the rest of the world.
Personally, as I said in my first post in this topic just after the election: I love your country and I love the people very much and I'm far far far far far from alone here. We are all very aware that if Trump is president, is really not a reflection of the majority. He's an historical accident. Please, don't take it personally if a Parisian is not super kind. They're assholish sometimes, like your typical New-Yorker on tv. Being from the "province" (meaning from another part of the country... la province is everything BUT Paris), I have a hard time with them too! To put it in perspective, each time I visited different parts of your country, I had a marvellous time except when visiting San Francisco where I told my husband "damn, honey, we're in Paris!" because some of the restaurants waiters and even people guarding museums were on the verge of obnoxious. I still don't think all sanfranciscans (??) are assholes or all of them hate frenchies and I can't wait to go back for more (am I wrong?!).
On another note and selfishly : protect Yellowstone from Trump's people, we still have to visit it please and thank you!
Thank you very much! You explained it very well. I think a general rule to visit another country is like the rules on PTV forums : don't be an asshole. If you aren't, nobody will be with you!
