Did the president of the United States really just hit on the First Lady of France? That’s becoming the general consensus after this information emerged via Twitter and ABC:
As Macron and Trump bid goodbye to first ladies, Trump looks Brigitte up and down. 'She looks great.. beautiful' https://t.co/4X7D6qGFCI

According to a report of the Trump/Macron meeting by ABC News:
President Donald Trump was captured complimenting the French president’s wife’s appearance in video posted by the French government’s Facebook account.
The footage shows Trump, French President Emmanuel Macron (eh-mahn-yoo-EHL’ mah-KROHN’) and their wives chatting after their tour of the museums at Les Invalides (lehz ahn-vah-leed).
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. Feminist have denounced the comments as sexist, noting that the Macrons’ age difference is identical to that of Donald and Melania Trump.”
Trump seemingly doesn’t even realize that his opinion of women’s physical appearance is not only unwanted, but it’s kind of creepy. It’s like that rapey uncle who thinks he’s still a ladies man who always hits on your friends when they come over.
No, Trump. Just no.
