Trump Just Picked Some 'Dandruff' Off Of Emmanuel Macron In A Bizarre And Uncomfortable Moment

Before President Donald Trump hosted his first state dinner on Tuesday, he greeted French President Emmanuel Macron, which was peppered with French greeting kisses, shoulder rubs, and Trump brushing dandruff off Macron's shoulder.


Standing beside each other in the Oval Office, the two leaders exchanged smiles and pleasantries, which were quickly followed by the president flicking what he called "dandruff" off Macron's suit. Whether the dust on Macron's shoulder was, in fact, dandruff, has not been confirmed.

"We have a very special relationship, in fact I'll get that little piece of dandruff off," Trump said of Macron. "We have to make him perfect. He is perfect"

The American and French presidents discussed an array of issues, with the Iran nuclear deal being a central focus of their talks. Trump has long expressed his desire to withdraw from the agreement. Macron believes it can be improved. They also reaffirmed their commitment for "free and fair trade."

"It is together that we shall build a new form of prosperity for all people, which means innovation, free and fair trade, and the protection of our middle classes," said Macron. "It is together that we will be able to act effectively for our planet."

Twitter users wasted no time sharing their, shall we say, befuddlement at the unexpected shows of affection between two men who could not be less politically aligned. The whole was just... weird.


Of course, Trump's hair was the butt of a joke.

"God in Heaven please help us. Maybe Macron should have reached up and straightened out that hot mess up on Trump's head for starters, lol."


But a lot of the digs were at Trump himself, who is easily swayed by praise.

"Trump acting like the unpopular kid who got to sit with the popular kids at lunch He wants so badly to be respected and liked."

Gender roles have evolved over time, which includes the roles of spouses in a "traditional marriage."

While the concept of traditional marriage is actually quite modern and differed in cultures around the world, most people envision the homes of sitcoms like Father Knows Best and Leave It to Beaver from the 1950s and early 1960s when they think of a traditional marriage.

A tanning addict who admits to soaking up sun without using protection for decades talked to Press Association about how a pink pimple on the end of her nose turned out to be sunbathing-induced skin cancer.

Her nose had to be covered using a radical technique known as a reconstructive skin flap, involving three operations in May and June, after Laure Seguy was diagnosed with skin cancer. She blames her tanning addiction and has now drastically overhauled her relationship with the sun.
