JESSE WATTERS (HOST): Cops, war, abortion, Trump. You name it, we're on the streets. The French don't care about any of that, doesn't get them out of bed. But the second you tell them they have to work, they do this.


So, why are they burning their own country down? Well, it's because the president raised the retirement age from 62 to 64. Yeah. And if you thought Marcia in accounts receivable hated her job, you've never met a Frenchman. They have a serious case of the Mondays. Also, the average Frenchman works five fewer weeks than we do and they want to nuke city hall.

Macron changed the rules without telling anybody. But if anybody should be angry, it's all the 61-year-olds out there, right? But they're not the ones throwing the bricks through the Louvre. It's all the 22-year-olds. They have 40 more years of work anyway. And now they want to tip over the Eiffel Tower over -- that's 42?
