Its the first district trip of Donald Trumps presidency, and the dominance foursome has truly delivered the goods

Never will we be knack such a dream change of press photos as the three epoch Macron-Trump tete-a-tete, the first day of which has assured the foursome see the former residence of George Washington and awkwardly plant a tree. As poses from France to the US extend, 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 flourished on one of France’s former first world war battlegrounds ).

The Macrons’ expedition is the firstly position stay from foreign governors to Trump, who is the first chairman in 100 times not to have maintained a government visit in his first year of office. It’s difficult to be a good emcee, between watching Fox& Pal, tweeting relentlessly and egregiously piquing most sections of society at a whim. 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 duets’ 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 getup Onassis wore on the day of JFK’s assassination ). The coat is Louis Vuitton, one of Brigitte’s favourite names. The cigarette throbs are tres French. Her husband is simply garmented as a standard Amis, ie. A Man in a Dres. But I note that Melania likewise selected a French designer to wear( Givenchy, with Louboutin shoes ); more on this outfit anon.

Here’s Macron doing” the Blair” side 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 politician do this with hands 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 example, 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 persons who only landed a red-faced and a light-green on her first two moves in a game of Twister.

Perhaps the best shot of the cluster, because: Melania. As well as demonstrating the kind of epic “hairs-breadth” movie that belongs on catwalks or in shampoo adverts( which would make sense, returned Melania’s former modelling vocation) it’s interesting to speculate 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 partner? Or perhaps this is why the Macrons apparently didn’t need a plane, because Melania flew them over. We simply don’t know.

Please, give it up for random harp madam. Your usual woodland stage headliner at Latitude Festival. Note Trump’s tepid motion- which, I’ll be honest, is probably the chasten response. The others are ignoring the harmonica girl, in accordance with procedures of one invigorating one’s tempo, pate down, past a tube 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 tell the body-language speak for itself here- because Melania, straight up, requires no part of this life any longer.
