François Hollande is a former French President who was very unpopular.
“I’m going to tell you who my adversary is. My real adversary has no name, no face, no party, he will never run for office and will never be elected — and still he will rule. This adversary is the world of finance.”
François Hollande (January 22, 2012)
Candidature speech for the French presidency
The Washington Post reported on July 5th, 2016, that "nearly 90 percent of the French disapprove of their president, a poll has revealed. Only 12 percent of those surveyed by polling institute TNS Sofres said they thought Hollande was doing a good job. It is the worst score of any French president since such surveys were first conducted more than three decades ago."
In late July 2016 Hollande announced, after a lot of suspicious "terrorist" activity, that France would have a 'new National Guard' "to protect its citizens".
