No action has encapsulated the essence of the presidency of Donald Trump quite like his wife, First Lady Melania Trump, slapping his hand away during their recent visit to Tel Aviv.
In a video of the two walking next to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and wife, Sara, Mr. Trump attempts to hold his wife’s hand as they walked down a tarmac. Niraj Warikoo of the Detroit Free Press noted on Twitter that it appears that the former model slapped her husband’s hand away from her. Action denied.

This wouldn’t be the first time Melania Trump’s questionable body language towards her husband of 12 years made headlines. The hashtag #FREEMELANIA emerged after Trump’s inauguration, as a video showing her looking downright frightened after her husband looked at her made the rounds. More recently, it appeared that Twitter account favorited a shady tweet towards her husband.
