Emmanuel Macron's victory in the French Presidential Elections has sparked outrage on #Social media.

The centrist candidate beat his rival, the head of the National Front's Marine Le Pen, comfortably with a 65% share of the vote. His rival won 35% of votes.

However, many famous centre-right commentators have exposed their fury at his victory on different social media platforms.

The former senior editor of Breitbart News and alt-right personality, Milo Yiannopoulos, shared a picture on Facebook explaining 'how to make your own French flag' for Bastille Day by using a plain white sheet.

This is a reference to France's 'willingness to surrender' by voting for Macron.

'France in 10 years time'

He then shared a video from a computer game where a soldier is fighting in a modern war in Paris, only to witness the Eiffel Tower collapsing, with the caption 'France in 10 years time.'

Finally, he wrote a post asking people to choose their favourite new French flag out of a choice of a white sheet or a tricolour with a Jihadist symbol on it.

The latter mocks President Macron's support for the free movement of people in the European Union, a policy Le Pen attacked throughout the entire campaign for allowing terrorists into France.

'A giant deceit'

Daily Mail columnist Katie Hopkins joined in the outrage at the outcome of the #French Presidential Elections by quoting the new President on Twitter before saying:

'"We are what we are. We are the future. We will not give in.

I am doing tonight what I must do"'.... Jesus'.

She also criticised those who mocked Theresa May for the famous phrase: 'Brexit means Brexit' after nobody had picked up on President Macron's phrase: 'France is France.'

The former Apprentice star shared a photo of the centrist President with his wife and tweeted: 'Macron's wife has promised him such a special new toy from the shops tomorrow for being such a clever little boy', mocking the President's wife being his former drama teacher and considerably older than him.

Former UKIP leader Nigel Farage tweeted: 'A giant deceit has been voted for today. Macron will be Juncker's puppet.'

He later appeared on Fox News to argue that France is not quite ready for Frexit.

However, France's new President should not be entirely disheartened by the disappointment of his victory on social media.

Many people have issued a comparison between him and Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, over who they think is the 'hottest' out of the two of them.

Former US presidential candidate Hillary Clinton tweeted: 'Victory for Macron, for France, the EU & the world.

Defeat to those interfering w/ democracy. (But the media says I can't talk about that).'

US President Donald Trump tweeted: 'Congratulations to Emmanuel Macron on his big win today as the next President of France. I look very much forward to working with him!'

This reaction comes despite endorsing Le Pen at the beginning of the French Presidential Elections.

'The world is watching us'

In a speech to thousands of supporters outside Paris's Louvre museum last night to the tune of the French national anthem, President Macron pledged to guarantee unity and suggested he faces an immense task ahead.

He is France's youngest ever leader since Napoleon.

Ms Le Pen quickly conceded defeat once polls closed. She congratulated President Macron on his victory before arguing that the French people voted for continuity.

The centrist candidate's supporters waved French tricolour flags at a victory party outside the Louvre.

President Macron said to the crowd of his supporters that Europe and the rest of the world were 'watching us', pledging to defend the spirit of the Enlightenment which has been 'threatened' in so many places.

Prior to his speech, he was on the receiving end of numerous gaffes, including being caught having make-up applied to his face and practising his speech on live television.

He was also caught looking at the wrong camera when making his speech.

Meanwhile, Ms Le Pen has vowed to act as the new 'leader of the opposition' to President Macron. #President Of France
