As President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump were visiting with French President Emmanual Macron and his wife Brigitte Macron Thursday, a friendly conversation among them has sent the media into a tizzy.
The headlines are being blasted across the media, saying, “Trump hits on France’s First Lady in front of Macron!” as they claim he was “admiring her body.”
As the four prepared to pose for a group photo, President Trump was overheard complimenting Mrs. Macron, and said, “You’re in such good shape… beautiful.”
The Trumps and the Macrons had just toured the museums at Les Invalides, and were standing together chatting before posing for a photo.
Business Insider noted there is almost the exact same age gap between both couples, as President Trump is 24 years older than Melania, while Brigitte Macron, 64, is 25 years older than her husband.
The media is exploding over the matter:
Trump to Macron’s wife: “You’re in such good shape”
Dems: *Heads explode*
Would you have liked it more if Trump said “you look awful”? 😂
