It goes without saying that being married to the President of the United States must be difficult -- especially this President of the United States -- and the First Lady has a habit of showcasing her displeasure in public.
From hand slapping to air kissing, there's no shortage of footage of Melania shutting the Donald down. In honor of President Trump's third wife's birthday, here are 11 of the couple's most cringeworthy moments.
The most recent awkward moment came this week when President Trump met with French President Emmanuel Macron and his wife, Brigitte Macron. Melania wore a wide-brimmed white hat, forcing her husband to settle for air kisses instead of landing his lips on her face.
Many on Twitter speculated Melania wore that hat for a reason. Brigitte, unfortunately, had to endure the president's polite PDA, receiving a peck on each side of her face. We're confident other world leaders' wives were watching, and we won't be surprised if more them start wearing wide-brimmed hats when visiting the White House.
Back in May of 2017, Melania demonstrated expert hand-holding evasion upon arriving in Rome with her husband. It was so good, we recommend other unhappy wives takes notes. If your hubby reaches for your hand in public, just pretend you need to fix your hair instead.
Less subtle, but just as effective was Melania literally slapping her husband's hand away from hers upon arriving in Tel Aviv, Israel, in May of 2017. She was rocking a killer pair of black shades, too, making her look like a total boss while so coldly rejecting the tiny form of PDA from her husband.
Melania sure knows how to look like she's happy for her husband, but only when he's looking directly at her. She flashed him a big smile during his inauguration when he turned to say something to her, then it was quickly replaced with a cold scowl as soon as he looked away.
Another awkward moment that inspired a flood of memes also took place on Inaugration Day. When Barack and Michelle Obama greeted the couple in front of the White House, Trump left his wife in the dust to meet the president he'd be replacing.
Perhaps this is what was on Melania's mind during the previously mentioned awkward moment?
Slovenian-born Melania had to remind the President of the United States to put his hand over his heart during the national anthem to kick off the White House's annual Easter Egg Roll. This is especially amusing considering how much POTUS had to say about NFL players "disrespecting the flag" while kneeling during the anthem before football games as a form of protest.
The president and first lady have been air kissing since his inauguration, but at least in this instance, his lips landed somewhere in the ballpark of her's. If we were to judge the health of their relationship based on the distance between their lips during air kisses, we'd rule it to be on the rocks.
When Melania introduced Trump on stage at an event at Joint Base Andrews last September, Trump decided to give his wife a casual handshake instead of, uh, treating her like his wife. But in his defense, maybe she requested the handshake, because she clearly isn't into PDA. The real question: Did Melania use Purell after this shake?
