Since before his inauguration, President Donald Trump was scrutinized for his treatment of his wife Melania.
Between leaving her behind during his initial meeting with former President Barack Obama, to not sharing his umbrella with her in the rain when he boarded Air Force One earlier this year, Trump seems to let his wife slip his mind.
So when the President takes a moment before boarding a helicopter to praise the First Lady's recent interview—not forgetting to mention he "didn't do too bad either"—it should be a positive step.
Except the moment he chose to do this.
Watch the moment here.

Trump left his wife in the rain again.
After his chat with reporters, the President rejoined the FLOTUS as they crossed the grass to the helicopter, keeping the umbrella over his head most of the way there.
When ABC News posted the video to Twitter, Trump's actions were quickly noticed.

@ABCPolitics Once again he doesn’t share the umbrella with his wife— Miller Road 🌊 (@Miller Road 🌊)1539612886.0
@ABCPolitics I get that the creature on his head can’t handle water but this usage of umbrella is very effeminate. Eat it up maga-ts— August B. West (@August B. West)1539613095.0
@ABCPolitics Such a gentleman. https://t.co/IpKdJKKfu4— T'Hanos (@T'Hanos)1539647290.0
Some had suggestions on what Trump could have done, if he was not so self absorbed.
@ABCPolitics And he has a hat he could have very well put on and gave her the umbrella— DCMN (@DCMN)1539613590.0
@babydest @ABCPolitics Or even handed her one of her own, but it's all about himself.— deelane (@deelane)1539614087.0
Others had some compelling reasons why the President left his wife to get wet.
@ABCPolitics COME ON......Let's be fair to Trump! He DOES have way more hairspray in his hair than Melania does...... HE needs the cover lol— Melanie Van Ⓜ (@Melanie Van Ⓜ)1539613227.0
@ABCPolitics Such a gentleman the way he protects himself w the umbrella but not his wife. Though he does spend more time on his hair— Siobhan (@Siobhan)1539614243.0
@ABCPolitics Trump protects only himself with the umbrella...his hair is the most important thing for today and everyday.— John McLaughlin (@John McLaughlin)1539618458.0
And some could not help but point out Trump's little aside when he was supposedly praising the First Lady.

As well as the fact his 60 Minutes interview did not go as well as he thought.

@ABCPolitics Where's her jacket? No, Donald. Melania and you were not terrific on TV. You are both good at lying, though.— nananesbitt (@nananesbitt)1539614684.0
@ABCPolitics "What is your message for hurricane victims?" "We both did a great job on television the other night." 🤬🤮— Traci 🐘🐖🐕🐳🐬🐄🐢 🐇🐈🐎 🐅🦗✌️ (@Traci 🐘🐖🐕🐳🐬🐄🐢 🐇🐈🐎 🐅🦗✌️)1539647296.0
The President's comments came while leaving for a trip to inspect the damage caused by Hurricane Michael, in the ravaged states of Georgia and Florida.
