Twitter is aglow this evening as Donald Trump and the Slovenian Sphinx, as Melania has been called, descend the steps of Air Force One, returning from yet another taxpayer funded golf vacation. See here where Trump tries to take his wife’s hand and she coldly rebuffs him and refuses. Now, Trump supporters are saying that she took his hand later, bla bla, and we’re making too big a deal of such a trifle. Perhaps. But take a look at the body language. You tell me if there are loving vibes between these two. Because I see rejection and annoyance and I don’t think this is a Rorschach test. She could have taken his arm or let him take her hand. She didn’t.

Now if you want to see this longer clip, she does take his hand later. Maybe he reminded her what the terms and conditions of that revised pre-nup were.

They’re not the warmest couple. Let’s just leave it at that. In my life, I have seen some relationships that I found admirable, enviable even. This is not one of them.
Here’s the original incident, if you want to stroll down memory lane with your favorite couple.
