American President Donald Trump is having a great visit with his new buddy, French President Emmanuel Macron.
Trump has described Monsieur Macron’s wife, Brigitte, as “beautiful.”
What a charming, gentlemanly thing to say.
Even the usually dour Melania, along for the visit, must be having fun.
PRESIDENT Donald Trump was captured complimenting the French president’s wife’s body in video posted by the French government’s Facebook account.
The footage shows Trump, French President Emmanuel Macron, and their wives chatting after their tour of the museums at Les Invalides.
Trump at one point turns to Brigitte Macron and tells her: “You’re in such good shape.”
He repeats the observation to the French president before turning back to the French first lady, and remarking: “Beautiful.”
Brigitte Macron was her husband’s former high school teacher and their relationship has drawn international attention because of their age difference.
But many have denounced the comments as sexist, noting that the Macrons’ age difference is identical to that of Donald and Melania Trump.
In a news conference, Trump saluted America’s “unbreakable” bond with France.
He made the gushing comments during a news conference in Paris today as part of a trip to France for the Bastille Day celebrations.
Setting aside the fluff, it’s a dazzling development to see Macron take so well to the older Trump. If he thinks of Trump as an older brother or confidant, then so much the better. Everyone had Macron pegged as a politically correct liberal, but so far he’s showing signs of independence from Angela Merkel, who must be jealous at what’s unfolding in Paris.
