As per usual, Angela Merkel has no time for Donald Trump’s nonsense.
On Saturday, the German Chancellor shared a striking photo of the G7 summit on Instagram that prominently showed her and other world leaders gathered around Trump.
The U.S. president is seated with his arms crossed, while Merkel, and other world leaders (all standing, BTW) are seen staring down at him. Needless to say, everyone in the photo looks visibly tense. Arms are folded, hands are on the table, and people definitely noticed.
“Day two of the G7 summit in Canada: spontaneous meeting between two working sessions,” Merkel captioned the post, tagging President Trump, British Prime Minister Theresa May, and French President Emmanuel Macron.
Since Trump’s been somewhat isolated during the summit — between disagreeing on tariffs and trade barriers, suggesting the group reinstate Russia back into the meetings, and LEAVING EARLY (prior to discussions on climate change) to meet Kim Jong-un — Twitter users couldn’t help but suggest the image was a pretty spot-on representation of the event.
Many also thought the post was Merkel attempting to throw shade at Trump. (Let’s not forget their history filled with failed handshakes and exasperated head-in-hand body language.)
And others, including Chrissy Teigen, felt the photo perfectly painted Trump as an infant in the middle of a tantrum.
While we may never know what was being said while this picture was taken, all signs point to Merkel enthusiastically screaming, “BOY BYE!” at Trump’s plane as it flew away from the summit. Until next year, you two!
