President Trump tells French First Lady Brigitte Macron she's 'in great shape'

At a welcome ceremony earlier in the day, meanwhile, Trump and the French First Lady shared a rather awkward moment with something of a botched handshake that ended up becoming a kiss on the cheek...

The contact group proposed by France and the United States, which will outline a 'roadmap' for the future of Syria after the conflict, must include permanent members of the UN Security Council, as well as a Damascus representative, Macron added.

So, I'm sorry if you're creeped out all over again watching any of this, but I'm glad to not yet be desensitized to having a president who talks about and interacts with women like they've been brought before him for his expert appraisal.

The US president's brief 24-hour trip to the French capital coincides with celebrations for Bastille Day, France's national day which is marked on Friday, and the 100th anniversary of US involvement in World War I.

Social media reacted to the video with netizens denouncing Trump's comments as 'sexist'.

The U.S. president arrived in Paris on Thursday, one day ahead of a Bastille Day celebration, where he was the guest of honor. Brigitte's response was not heard, but she appeared to back away.
