While Emmanuel Macron's visit to a nuclear submarine 
Tuesday
 may have been a standard part of presidential duties, 
his entrance 
was quite dramatic. 
In the photo tweeted by the president's account, Macron, 
39, the youngest French president since Napoleon Bonaparte, 
dangles from a wire as he is lowered from a helicopter to the 
deck of "Le Terrible."

Macron, a centrist, won the French presidential election 
in May 
over far-right candidate Marine Le Pen. Macron, who had
never 
before held elected office, was handed the keys to the 
country 
and the nuclear codes by predecessor Francois Hollande.
