President Donald Trump declared that his “special relationship” with French President Emmanuel Macron is definitely “not fake news” as the two men met at the White House.
Macron echoed Trump’s sentiments, celebrating the friendship of the two leaders as they met at a formal state arrival ceremony Tuesday, exchanging compliments and raising eyebrows with their blooming “bromance.”

“Mr. President, they’re all saying what a great relationship we have,” Trump told Macron in front of reporters. “And they’re actually correct. It’s not fake news. Finally.”
The president continued, “We have a very special relationship, in fact I’ll get that little piece of dandruff off…we have to make him perfect, he is perfect.”

Macron laughed at Trump’s attempt to brush off the “dandruff” on his shoulder before launching into reciprocal praise, though he did not feel the need to groom the U.S. president at any point.
And though this is the first state visit of the Trump presidency, the two leaders appeared to pick up where they had left off when the French leader and his wife hosted the Trumps in France last year. Macron made some statements and listened in as reporters asked questions.
One particular question raised by ABC News’ Jonathan Karl clearly set Trump off and his response seemed to surprise and amuse Macron whose expression spoke volumes.
A reporter asked Trump if he would pardon Michael Cohen and he snapped back, “Stupid question.”

Of course, there was much talk about the famous Trump handshake which even Macron discussed in a pre-visit interview on Fox News.

The French president seemed to have the advantage however when he greeted Trump with a double kiss, although there have already been plenty of other awkward hand-grabbing moments.

There were also plenty of compliments on hand as first lady Melania Trump stepped out in a beautiful white wide-brimmed hat to welcome the Macrons.

Much to the chagrin of leftists and their media cohorts, Macon’s visit with President Trump looks to have been an overwhelming success.
