Because the President and First Lady’s trip to France has been a great success, the news media decided to fixate on one moment of the trip which they deemed inappropriate.
Such a shocker.
When greeting President Macron and his
mother wife, President Trump complimented France’s first lady.
And all hell broke loose.
How dare the President compliment Mrs. Macron! It was inappropriate! There’s such a thing as decorum!
And naturally, they are complaining because by complimenting Mrs. Macron’s appearance, Mr. Trump was being a …
…wait for it…
Yeah? Well, I’ll see your Trump Complaint and raise you one Obama.
In April, 2013, while appearing at a Democrat fundraiser in California, Barack Obama referred to then-State Attorney General Kamala Harris as “by far the best looking attorney general in the country.”
So, by the standard the media is holding President Trump, it appears that Barack Obama has no decorum and is a …
…wait for it…
”But that’s different! Trump was on foreign soil! And there are protocols and procedures when meeting with people on foreign soil!”
Okay. Fine. I’ll see your Trump Complaint and raise you one Obama.
In May 2011 while attending a Royal Banquet at Buckingham Palace, Barack Obama rose to give a toast to the Queen.
The orchestra began playing “God Save the Queen.”
And protocol dictates that when you are in the Queen’s presence and “God Save the Queen” is played, you shut the hell up.
But Obama didn’t shut the hell up.
He just kept prattling along reading his prepared remarks – oblivious to the fact that he wasn’t supposed to be speaking.
But what do you expect?
Obama was always in love with the sound of his own voice.
Which, come to think of it, is probably why his gift to Queen Elizabeth was an iPod loaded with his speeches.
”But it was still inappropriate to address the wife of the French President that way!! It was egotistical and undignified!!!”
Really? Well, I’ll see your Trump Complaint and raise you one Obama.
Let’s talk egotistical.
September 2011, while visiting the United Nations, Barack Obama completely ruined the group photo when he decided to raise his hand in a wave completely blocking the face of the man standing behind him.
”But that’s different! Trump was being the sexist pig that he’s always been!”
Oh, okay. Well, I’ll see your Trump Complaint and raise you one Obama.
Remember that now infamous video of candidate Obama boarding the campaign plane and showing off his stiffie to a gaggle of female reporters?
Let’s be honest here. In this day and age, parading your hard-on in front of a bunch of women is practically rape.
And were these reporters as angry about that as they were about Trump complimenting Mrs. Macron?
No. They tittered and giggled like horny girls.
This isn't a casual occasion or even a cocktail party-he's meeting with the First Lady of France. Protocol, decorum, respect & class needed!

Oh, really? Well, I’ll let BayAreaFrau see your Trump Complaint and raise you one hell of an Obama.
Some day he might even do something crass, like take selfies at the funeral of one of the world's icons. https://t.co/8sYQWRbwd2

President Trump complimented a woman. That’s it.
He comes from a generation where it is common and somewhat expected that a man compliment another man’s wife when being introduced. I know this might come as a shock to the perpetually offended out there. But that used to be considered good manners.
And let’s be honest. In French culture, complimenting a woman’s appearance is practically mandatory.
Mr. Trump didn’t ogle her. And he didn’t make some lewd remark. All he did was compliment her.
And that was very gentlemanly of him. Because, honestly? God bless her, but Mrs. Macron is not an attractive woman. She looks like the overly-tanned lady from “There’s Something About Mary.”
But to act as if this one moment from an otherwise successful trip is the biggest scandal since Monica Lewinsky isn’t just ridiculous. It borders on insane.
If nothing else, it only serves as a reminder that the news media is so hell-bent on finding something critical to say about the President, they’ll even perseverate on his complimenting a woman.
And to pretend that Mr. Trump is somehow an uncouth ape while claiming that Barack Obama was the epitome of grace, class and decorum just isn’t factually true.
