Melania Trump appears smitten by Canadian leader Justin Trudeau — and the internet loves it
First Lady Melania Trump only had eyes for Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and President Trump could only look on at the G-7 summit in France.
A comically framed series of photos that seem to show Melania about to kiss Trudeau has gone viral, prompting online jokers to kid that the first lady has found love north of the border. Even the Russian news network RT News has some fun with the awkward moment.
“Everyone should find someone who looks at them the way Melania looks at Justin Trudeau’?” the outlet tweeted.
Complicating matters for Melania, 49, and Trudeau, 47, is that the 72-year-old U.S. president appears defeated in the photos, as he tends to business while the two of them share a moment. Granted, Trump appeared to be holding his wife’s hand at the time.
A creative tweeter photo-shopped one of the images to look like the cover of a romance novel, and added the caption “While Trump surrendered himself to Russia and North Korea, the First Lady surrendered herself to the Prime Minister of Canada... and her heart.”
Another joker tweeted “Trump imposes sanctions on Iran & China, First Lady Melania imposes admiration on PM Justin Trudeau.”
Numerous Twitter users referenced Melania’s “Be Best” initiative, which among things, promotes “online safety.”
This isn’t the first time a Trump lady has been accused of falling for the handsome Canadian prime minister. Photos of Ivanka Trump and Trudeau, taken a day before Valentine’s Day 2017, showed the first daughter appearing to enjoy the company of the Liberal party leader. The Guardian playfully referred to Ivanka as “swooning” over Trudeau.
