Watch Melania Swat Away Donald Trump’s Hand During Israel Visit

First Lady Melania Trump refused to hold her husband’s hand and then swatted it away during their visit to Israel Monday morning.

As President Donald Trump and the First Lady walked down a red carpet at a Tel Aviv airport, the president held out a hand to his wife. After a few cringe-inducing seconds, Melania swatted Trump’s hand away.

Trump, well-known for an uncomfortable relationship with his own extremities, then went on to visit the Western Wall in Tel Aviv, and met with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

This isn’t the first time Donald and Melania have struggled with the basic physical practices of an intimate relationship. The swat is very reminiscent of this moment from January:

This also comes soon after Melania’s Twitter account inexplicably liked a Tweet describing the metaphorical wall between herself and her husband.
