American election in French style

Full of positive energy we went  with my American friend from Paris to watch on live stream race for the armchair in the White House . This event attracted crowds to the beautiful building of the French radio in Paris. Not Americans however. 

My friend dressed for this special occasion cap which provides for whom he voted. As a native Polish, journalist in plus I was just in the position of an event observer. Our first surprise at the entrance to the beautiful building of the French radio sparked  fact that in this American historical night event are participating almost only French people.

The second shocking annotation was  that they treat  American  presidential election as a football match. Beer pours streams and you can hear discussions about plans for the weekend but not about politics. In one of the rooms Dj mixes electronic pieces.Considering that it was in a beautiful building of the French radio he could play better by the way.

In the course of beer a few people discovered  that all they cheer completely the opposite player than the one whose name was on the cap of my friend. And in the course of the beer situation was getting dangerous. One girl demonstratively turns butts raises cap on the forehead of my friend. Another asked me stupid questions because she was totally drunk. We decided to evacuate from such a democracy.
