For a second day in a row people are talking about Melania Trump’s hands — specifically, whether she’s holding her husband’s hand or not.
On Monday, as the Trumps arrived at Tel Aviv airport to kick off a two-day trip to Israel, cameras caught FLOTUS swatting her husband’s hand away as he tried to hold hers.
It was a flick of the wrist for all the world to see. Stating the obvious: No one but her can know what was going on in that moment, now gone viral for better or worse.
“Ouch,” Israeli publication Haaretz wrote on its official Twitter account, along with a slow motion clip of the moment.
Then, with that scene still playing in people’s minds — and with some people complaining about why the moment got so much attention – the first lady appeared to diss her husband again on Tuesday as they arrived in Italy.
As the two stood at the top of the stairs of Air Force One for their requisite “we’re here” photo op, the president put his hand out to take hers before they descended.
But she pulled her hand away and brushed it through her hair in one single, graceful motion.
Left. Him. Hangin’.
Only her manicurist may know for sure.
