Its the first nation stay of Donald Trumps presidency, and the capability foursome are certainly delivered the goods

Never will we be offering such a dream organize of press photos as the three epoch Macron-Trump tete-a-tete, the first day of which has determined the foursome visit the former residence of George Washington and awkwardly plant a tree. As presents from France to the US disappear, some have pointed out that this tree is not exactly up there with the Statue of Liberty. The tree is more of a flowers-from-the-petrol station sort of effort.( It is, though, apparently substantial foliage, in that the oak grew on one of France’s former first world war battlegrounds ).

The Macrons’ trip is the firstly nation trip from foreign managers to Trump, who is the first president in 100 times not to have braced a position visit in his first year of its term of office. It’s difficult to be a good host, between watching Fox& Friends, tweeting relentlessly and egregiously piquing most sections of society at a impulse. But Trump selected the Macrons as a return invitation after he and Melania spent Bastille Day with the Macrons in Paris . Let us take a closer look at the latest couples’ minibreak.

We begin with the above image, which I have titled, in homage to Magritte, Ceci n’est pas un avion . Because frankly, there is a glaring omission here.

I care about this image because Brigitte’s coat is amazing. There’s a Jackie Onassis colour-match here( albeit specific the kit Onassis wore on the day of JFK’s assassination ). The coat is Louis Vuitton, one of Brigitte’s favourite labels. The cigarette breathes are tres French. Her husband is simply dressed as a standard Amis, ie. A Man in a Dres. But I note that Melania likewise elected a French decorator to wear( Givenchy, with Louboutin shoes ); more on this outfit anon.

Here’s Macron doing” the Blair” hand gesture, since developed as the centrist premiere hand-move du jour . We’ve seen Barack Obama and Justin Trudeau utilise it, and even Angela Merkel. I have never seen anybody other than a politician do this with sides when they speak.

The main event, the tree-planting. What I enjoy about this photograph is that neither Melania nor Brigitte has any remote intention of helping, while Trump and Macron bury their dying approval ratings and, perhaps in Trump’s action, Michael Cohen’s paper trail from the Stormy Daniels case. And the Steele dossier. And all other intel on Russia. He’ll probably be finished by nightfall. Meanwhile, Brigitte has the constitute of someone who precisely landed a cherry-red and a green on her first two moves in video games of Twister.

Perhaps the best shot of the cluster, because: Melania. As well as expressing the various kinds of epic hair movie that belongs on catwalks or in shampoo adverts( which would make sense, payed Melania’s former modelling busines) it’s interesting to suppose what she might be disguising under the cape. Perhaps a carry-on, containing all the stuff one needs when one is planning to run away from one’s awful husband? Or perhaps this is why the Macrons apparently didn’t need an aeroplane, because Melania flew them over. We just don’t know.

Please, give it up for random harp noblewoman. Your typical woodland stage headliner at Latitude Festival. Note Trump’s tepid movement- which, I’ll be honest, is probably the redres response. The others are ignoring the harp noblewoman, in accordance with procedures of one invigorating one’s gait, chief down, past a tube depot busker with an eccentric instrument. I respect your decision to play the oboe sir, but is it really working at the bottom of an escalator in King’s Cross?

I’m gonna make the body-language is talking about itself here- because Melania, straight up, misses no part of this life any longer.
