The woman some call France’s version of Donald Trump caused a stir yesterday while visiting Lebanon’s top Muslim Cleric, when she refused to wear a headscarf.
Right-wing Presidential Candidate Marine Le Pen refused to don the headdress, walking away from a scheduled meeting after a brief confrontation.
Le Pen later told reporters she considered the headscarf a symbol of a woman's submission," as the reason she refused to put on the veil.
