- The French pastry can cost anywhere from $1
- Users mocked the politician on social media for the gaffe
When asked during a radio interview with Europe 1
on Monday if he knew the price of the famous French pastry, the lawmaker guessed they would be between 10 and 15 euro cents ($0.11-$0.16).
"I have no clue, I have no idea ... maybe 10-15 cents?" Cope said during the interview.
The chocolate treat actually sells for over $1.
Many users took to social media to mock the candidate for his answer with the hashtag #PainAuChocolat
"Brexit strikes again -- my English #PainAuChocolat (is) already 10-15 times more expensive than France. Disgrace," James Funnell tweeted.
