Shocking and racist remarks for Gilles Verdez and Matthieu Delormeau. As the debate opposes Adama Traoré and Elisabeth Lévy, Gilles Verdez intervenes by saying: “There for me you went much too far… When we watch the broadcast live, it comes out spontaneously on the boubou. There, we see that spontaneously, you express what you feel. And that's doubly racist. He explains that it is not only racist because she is a person of color and that in addition Elisabeth Lévy attacks her on the traditional outfit that is the boubou.
The tone is on set
Matthieu Delormeau supports Gilles Verdez's comments. He even goes further, because he criticizes the trial of intention that Elisabeth Lévy had against the deputy. “She would have arrived at the Assembly in a boubou, you could have said that ‘I am shocked that’. There, she is not in boubou and you still say happy that she is not in boubou.

She goes on to explain that the National Assembly should not be the place for the expression of community belonging. A justification that did not convince many people on the set, especially Gilles Verdez who again reminded him that Rachel Keke“did not arrive in a boubou.
