Melania Trump apparently doesn’t want anything to do with President Donald Trump these days either. The FLOTUS and POTUS arrived at Ben Gurion International Airport and things quickly went down hill.
Trump was talking to his envoy and hosts when he reached back to grab Melania’s hand. Instead of grabbing hold, she quickly swatted as his fingers.
The first couple had just arrived in Tel Aviv, Israel, for Day 3 of the administration’s first international trip, when Trump reached one hand backward toward his wife.
Trump tried to grab Melania’s hand after Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu took hold of his own wife’s hand.
Watch the entire scene unfold:
LOL! Melania in Tel Aviv is as MISERABLE, as Melania in the U.S. Watch her push away the CREEP's hand. PRICELESS???This guy is DISGUSTING! pic.twitter.com/lhR1JdTi1m

Twitter immediately responded just like we would expect:
He only tried to hold her hand after he saw Bibi and his wife holding hands. He was like, "Wait, is this how humans act? Melania!" https://t.co/pMLwbbNQj4

Twitter user Abbie Nonamous had a different outlook on the situation:
No, Melania didn't slap his hand away. He withdrew the offered hand as she was clearly reaching for it. Let's don't be silly.

When the President of the United States can’t even get his own wife to hold hands, we know there is trouble afoot.
Maybe she just doesn’t want to be known as the woman who held the hand of the future impeached President?
