Henry Rousso is one of France’s most preeminent scholars and public intellectuals. Last week, as the historian attempted to enter the United States to attend an academic symposium, he was detained for more than 10 hours — for no clear reason.

Emmanuel Macron, the popular centrist candidate for the French presidency, used the Rousso affair to repeat his pitch to U.S. scientists and researchers who he has said would be better off in France rather than in the America of Donald Trump.

"There is no excuse for what happened to Henry Rousso," Macron wrote Sunday on Twitter. "Our country is open to scientists and intellectuals."

    • Why Polls Differ On Trump’s Popularity "The differences between the polls aren’t random, or at least they don’t appear to be based on the relatively limited amount of data we have so far." 
    • Trump Will Be First President In 36 Years To Skip White House Correspondents Dinner "On Sunday, White House deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders told ABC's This Week, 'This wasn't a president that was elected to spend his time with reporters and celebrities.'" No, this is a president that chooses to spend every weekend golfing at taxpayer expense and undermining the press with every other sentence. But, y'know, whatever. "The last president to not attend the dinner was Ronald Reagan in 1981. But he had a pretty good reason — he was recovering from being shot in an assassination attempt."
