Gérald Darmanin is the Interior Minister of France and a member of “La République En Marche!” (bang included in the official title), the party of Prime Minister Emmanuel Macron. The following Twitter exchange between Mr. Darmanin and Marine Le Pen, the leader of Rassemblement National, took place after the recent murder of a priest in the Vendée by a Rwandan culture-enricher.

1. Marine Le Pen’s reaction to the murder (not shown in the screen cap):
In France, one can be an illegal immigrant, set fire to the cathedral in Nantes, never be deported, and then reoffend by murdering a priest.
What is happening in our country is unprecedentedly serious: it is the complete failure of the State and of @GDarmanin
2. Gérald Darmanin’s response to her comment:
What indignity! Rather than expressing her compassion for the Catholics who welcomed this murderer, Madame Le Pen polemicizes without knowing the facts: this foreigner could not be deported, despite his deportation order, as long as his judicial supervision was not lifted.
3. Ms. Le Pen’s riposte:
After this tragedy, your only response is contempt, arrogance, “it’s not my fault”.
This illegal immigrant was deportable since 2019!
The French people want firmness, not this childish blabbering of a minister who deflects. Do your job. MLP
