Donald Trump‘s only modes of diplomacy appear to either involve frowning and yelling a lot, or being extremely horny. He has truly deployed the latter on his trip to France, where he was captured on video praising President Emmanuel Macron‘s wife for her bod.
During the meeting between the leaders and their wives, Trump at one point turns to Brigitte Macron and tells her: “You’re in such good shape.”
He then turns to Emmanuel and says “she’s in such good physical shape,” before turning back to the French first lady and saying “Beautiful.”

This particularly thirsty display comes as part of Trump’s slightly awkward trip to France – his relationship with centrist Macron has been frosty ever since Macron gave him an aggressive handshake at their first meeting (yes, this is politics now).
It also doesn’t help that Trump withdrew from the Paris Agreement on climate change. Though Donny made some mystifying remarks on that in Paris, perhaps responding to the fact that his decision to nix the agreement has won him few friends in Europe.
“Something could happen with respect to the Paris accords, let’s see what happens,” Trump told a news conference.
“If it happens, that will be wonderful, and if it doesn’t, that’ll be OK too.”
But Macron is obviously an opportunistic bloke, and he’s done well to weasel himself in as Trump’s primary contact in Western Europe, as the United Kingdom works through this whole Brexit dealio and Geramny preps itself for a mammoth election.
Turns out the price you pay for that is Trump openly lusting after your wife. Cool.
