MSNBC Mocks Trump’s Relationship With Macron

MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace jokingly insulted about how President Trump touched French President Emmanuel Macron more than he does the first lady Melania Trump.

Partial transcript as follows:

RUCKER: Well, it was interesting to watch all of that today. There’s clearly a relationship that’s developed between Trump and Macron.

WALLACE: What kind of relationship?

RUCKER: Well, I don’t know, but we do not see that with Merkel who is going to be—Angela Merkel is going to be here on Friday.

WALLACE: We don’t see that with Melania. I’ve not seen him touch Melania that many times.

RUCKER: It all dates back to about a year ago when Trump did his first foreign visit. I was in the room in Brussels when he first met Macron. Macron got the better of him in that handshake. It was a white knuckled handshake. And I didn’t know that this relationship would go in this direction. But it clearly has and there’s some chemistry there.
