Reebok is taking a shot at President Trump after he paid French President Emmanuel Macron’s wife Brigitte a compliment during his visit in France last week. Apparently, Reebok found the compliment inappropriate.
As he was exchanging pleasantries with the Macrons, President Trump complimented France’s First Lady by saying, “You know, you’re in such good shape.” He then repeated the sentiment to her husband, French President Macron, before facing Brigitte again and saying, “Beautiful.”
Using a graphic to drive home their point, Reebok took to Twitter Friday in an attempt to educate the public about when such a compliment is acceptable, writing: “In case you were wondering when it IS appropriate to say, ‘You’re in such good shape…beautiful,'”

“Are you a world leader greeting the spouse of a head of state?” the graphic asks in one scenario. The conclusion: “No.”
There was only one scenario the sporting goods company found the presidents quote to be appropriate for.
They ask: “Did you just find a forgotten action figure from your youth, unscathed after decades, in your parents’ basement?”
According to the graphic, you are cleared to say: “You’re in such good shape . . . Beautiful.”
