Its the first district trip of Donald Trumps presidency, and the supremacy foursome have really delivered the goods

Never will we be gifted such a dreaming mount of press photos as the three daytime Macron-Trump tete-a-tete, the first day of which has find the foursome visit the former dwelling of George Washington and awkwardly flora a tree. As presents from France to the US depart, 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 kind of effort.( It is, though, apparently significant foliage, in that the oak grew on one of France’s former first world war battlegrounds ).

The Macrons’ excursion is the first position call from foreign presidents to Trump, who is the first president in 100 years not to have maintained a district visit in his first year of office. It’s difficult to be a good legion, between watching Fox& Friends, tweeting relentlessly and egregiously offending most parts of society at a whim. But Trump preferred the Macrons as a return invitation after he and Melania wasted 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 outfit Onassis wore on the day of JFK’s assassination ). The coating is Louis Vuitton, one of Brigitte’s favourite names. The cigarette gasps are tres French. Her partner is simply dressed as industry standards Amis, ie. A Boy in a Dres. But I note that Melania likewise chose a French decorator to wear( Givenchy, with Louboutin shoes ); more on this outfit anon.

Here’s Macron doing” the Blair” handwriting gesticulate, 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 legislator do this with handwritings when they speak.

The main event, the tree-planting. What I enjoy about this photo is that neither Melania nor Brigitte has only one remote purpose of helping, while Trump and Macron inter their dying approval ratings and, perhaps in Trump’s case, Michael Cohen’s paper trail from the Stormy Daniels instance. And the Steele dossier. And all other intel on Russia. He’ll probably be finished by nightfall. Meanwhile, Brigitte has the pose of persons who exactly landed a crimson 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 demonstrating the various kinds of epic fuzz movie that belongs on catwalks or in shampoo adverts( which would make sense, rendered Melania’s former pattern occupation) it’s interesting to suppose what she might be concealing under the cape. Perhaps a carry-on, containing all the stuff one needs when one is planning to run away from one’s awful partner? Or perhaps this is why the Macrons apparently didn’t need a plane, because Melania moved them over. We precisely don’t know.

Please, hand it up for random harp madam. Your typical woodland theatre headliner at Latitude Festival. Note Trump’s tepid brandish- which, I’ll be honest, is probably the remedy response. The still others dismissing the harp lady, in accordance with procedures of one quickening one’s pace, honcho down, past a tubing depot busker with an eccentric instrument. I respect your decision to play the oboe sir, but is it genuinely working at the bottom of an escalator in King’s Cross?

I’m gonna let the body-language speak for itself here- because Melania, straight up, craves no part of “peoples lives” any longer.
