Creepy Old Man

Donald Trump has been heavily criticised after passing comment on the physical appearance of France’s first lady during his first state visit to the country.

Apparently Himself hasn't seen that yet.
Standing in the marbled hall of the the Hôtel national des Invalides in Paris on Thursday, Trump was filmed looking Brigitte Macron, the wife of the French president, admiringly up and down.

“You’re in such good shape,” the US president told her. He then turned to her husband, newly elected French president Emmanuel Macron, who was standing beside him, and repeated: “She’s in such good physical shape.”

Looking back to the first lady of France, Trump nodded approvingly once more and added: “Beautiful.” Her response was unclear, but she appeared to take Trump’s wife, Melania, by the arm and step slightly backwards.

The comments came after a tour of the Hôtel des Invalides, home to the tombs of Napoleon Bonaparte and other French military heroes, by the two couples, and was caught on live video posted to the French presidency’s Facebook page.


Last month Trump also drew flak when he interrupted a telephone call in the Oval office with the prime minister of Ireland, Leo Varadkar, to comment on the looks of the Washington correspondent of Ireland’s national broadcaster.

“And where are you from?” the president asked Caitriona Perry. “Go ahead. Come here, come here. Where are you from? We have all of this beautiful Irish press.” He then told Varadkar: “She has a nice smile on her face so I bet she treats you well.”


Jen Siebel Newsom, a documentary maker and actress, (@JenSiebelNewsom) said on Twitter: “Mr. Trump - Women do not want to hear unsolicited remarks on what you think of their bodies. Its gross, and deeply inappropriate.”
You'll never convince him of that.

...but hey, do what you will anyway.


MSNBC is saying that remark about Macron's wife came from Macron's FB page  (France24 says (French government's Facebook page".)
