Well, US President Donald Trump is all over social media. But, this time not for mocking his counterparts or any political issues. It’s again an awkward moment with First Lady. On Monday, while boarding Marine One, the US President’s latest attempt at a public display of affection and unity went wrong.

A clip from NBC News showed the president reaching for his wife’s right hand, but instead Trump got hold of her coat sleeve which Melania Trump was wearing. But later Trump managed to cover-up the awkward moment by putting his arm around her as they approached the helicopter.

With this new video, which has perpetrated on the internet, social media has again started trolling US President Trump.

But this is not the first awkward moments at some PDA of Donald Trump with his wife Melania. It has become a tradition of Trump presidency. Most famous was the moment in May 2017, when the couple arrived in Tel Aviv, and Melania Trump appeared to swat away her husband’s hand as he reached out to hold hers.

Even that hand-swat was dissected, and people started trolling Trump over their 13-year marriage. And a day later, Melania Trump also appeared to avoid holding hands with her husband while they disembarked Air Force One in Rome.

While it’s difficult for us to know what exactly went wrong with them, but it’s clear what social media thinks about the US President and First Lady.
