President Trump has a long standing history of being a little grabby with women. There have been numerous times he has been caught being a little handsy with those he would deem to be beautiful women. Apparently, becoming the President of the United States has not changed this behavior at all.
Another thing Trump seems to struggle with is handshake etiquette. Not only did he give French President Emmanuel Macron one of his signature lengthy handshakes during their visit, but the first lady was subjected to one as well.
Upon saying his goodbyes to the Macrons, Trump gestured toward Mrs. Macron’s body, looking her up and down, and stated,“You know, you’re in such good shape. Beautiful.” This, however, isn’t the end of Trump’s weird behaviors toward the french first lady.
At Les Invalides in Paris, after giving the President Macron possibly the longest handshake of his life, Trump set his sites on Macron’s wife. While still essentially holding the hand of her husband, grabbed onto Brigitte’s upper arm. Shortly after Trump released President Macron, while focusing solely on Mrs. Macron, Trump gave her a tight hug and an awkward handshake before allowing her to retreat.
First Lady Melania Trump tweeted out her thanks to the Macrons for welcoming them in France, but unsurprisingly had no comment on her husbands strange behavior. Twitter users, on the other hand, were not going to let Trump get off that easy.
