Trump Planted A Tree With The President Of France And It Got Weird Fast
In the opinion of some, Donald Trump can be an extremely awkward human being. This is especially on display when he hosts a world leader, and the two are thrust in front of a million cameras capturing the interactions.
It can be very, very awkward.
Like in this clip where he seems to be ignoring Angela Merkel’s suggestion of a handshake:

Or when he tries to hold his wife’s hand during a press event:
At the moment, Trump is being visited by French president Emmanuel Macron. It’s been interesting, to say the least.
“When the aging gorilla is confronted with the much more virile, new alpha-male, he shows submissiveness by grooming the alpha-male, but the gesture is actually a vain attempt by the old gorilla to humiliate his much younger rival.”

And Macron is just smiling through it as best he can:
As a gift to mark his visit on Monday, Macron gave the Trumps an oak tree, which they then ceremoniously planted together on the lawn of the White House:
The pics from the event look…unique?
It was obviously memed immediately:

Some thought the tree was a symbolic troll from Macron, because of Trump’s decision to pull the United States out of the Paris Agreement.
There’s just a lot going on.
Soon you will be free to go home, Macron. Just grin and bear it.
