44. When Macron got the highest vote in the first round,

Fillon and Hamon told their supporters to vote for Macron. The French recognized the gravity of the situation and voted for a centrist to stop the progress of a neo-Nazi fascist.

If it had been the U.S., there would have been endless complaining about how Macron shouldn't have won, how his campaign had supposedly cheated, how Mélenchon or Hamon would have been stronger against Le Pen, how leftists should stay home because Macron was too centrist, how leftists should vote for Le Pen to teach the Socialist Party a message, how Macron wasn't really that different from Le Pen, how five years of Le Pen wouldn't be the end of the world, etc., etc.

I congratulate the French people. They have succeeded where Americans have failed. May we learn our lesson this time.
