Breaking: That the immaculate Emmanuel Macron, President of France, would find a rejoinder to Mr. Trump goes without saying.
The two are currently discussing the nuclear disarmament deal with Iran and whether to modify it or drop it.
Review: A few days back, with cameras rolling and the two gentlemen at the top of their performance, Mr. Trump saw fit to brush a piece of dandruff off Mr. Macron’s shoulder.
Mr. Trump then commented, “We have a very special relationship; I’ll get that little piece of dandruff off. We have to make him perfect.”
Was Mr. Macron affected by that public moment, with the dandruff floating off his shoulder and into the sunlight, a crowd looking on?
Highly placed sources (who must remain anonymous) indicate he was.
Directly following the dandruff de moment, Mr. Macron stayed at the White House.
Researchers are measuring whether the gleam in Mr. Macron's eyes has intensified after the following events:
In the opening hours next day, Mr. Trump awoke with his hair cut--and a smiling Mr. Macron on the bed beside him.
That is, Mr. Macron was placed between the President and Melania, although on top of the sheets.
The French President then explained that he too had felt a need to groom the President.
"La perfection est requise," he said. Perfection is required.
Mr. Macron’s professional area previously was the tonsorial, he said, holding up his scissors and automatic razor.
He smiled toward the President. "You were looking a bit ragged."
At that time Mr. Trump was somewhat bewildered.
How could Mr. Macron have assumed his position in the bed next to Melania, plus brought in his equipment to do the haircutting, while Mr. Trump slept?
Further, (chilling) how long had he been there?
Not the least, Mr. Trump was not in the mood for “ragged.”
His long-in-the-afterlock part of his blown back is deliberate--not in need of savaging with Emmanuel’s scissors.
There was also the question of what happened next.
Mr. Macron suddenly glanced away from Trump and around to exchange a look with Melania.
Her response—gazing directly into Mr. Macron’s face and smiling—would give Donald pause for some time.
Mr. Macron continued. He had once been in training as barber, especially dedicated to those in the high professions.
Then he found being President of France easier.
