Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall, has gone viral with the crazy left.
After President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump posed Monday with the duchess and her husband, Charles, Prince of Wales, the duchess fired off a quick wink to the cameras. Afterward, all four reportedly sat together for tea and talks.
But while the meaning of that mysterious wink remains unclear, the left automatically assumed it was meant as a diss of Trump. To be clear, there’s no substantive evidence to suggest that.
Watch the wink below:
Oooh, exciting …
Now observe some of the reaction to that otherwise meaningless wink:

So now I’m in love with the Royal family as Camilla winks at the cameras behind #Trump‘s back as if to say, yes we know he’s a w**nker but let’s treat him as “The Emperor’s New Clothes.”#c4news pic.twitter.com/kEjkN6NL3w

As flotus & potus show signs of fatigue, Camilla winks towards the press in a nonchalant but knowing way. The Royals are deliberately running the trumps ragged before the cameras. It is heart-warming to see revenge executed so gracefully.

Never mind the blimp – Camilla trumped any tub-thumping speechifying or banner waving with one little subversive wink https://t.co/eyFDJLRkrJ

I’m certainly not a fan of the royals but fair play, Camilla. That wink basically says “yes, he’s a massive twonk, the sarnies are shit, we’ve got crap cakes in and f7ck knows what she’s come as” https://t.co/nGs57riqtx

They all seem to think the wink was Camilla’s way of telling anybody watching that Trump’s a madman or an idiot or whatever. The basis for this belief are multiple.
One, the duchess was caught posing with Trump impersonators back in 2017.
“Camilla Parker-Bowles, 70, attended The Annual ICAP Charity Day in London today. However, Prince Charles’ wife was caught up in an unintentional political gaffe, which the President of the United States might not find too amusing,” the Daily Express reported at the time.
“Camilla met staff and charity representatives at the ICAP, but some of them were dressed in unflattering Donald Trump designs. The costumes, with caricature masks and red ties, appeared to mock Donald Trump’s animated facial expressions, and his hair. Could this displease the President, 72, and further damage Britain’s ‘special relationship’ with the US?”
FYI, it had no effect on America’s relationship with the U.K. …
The US State Visit to the UK will start on Monday… Charles & Camilla will join The Queen to welcome the Trumps to the country. The two women have a good experience to dealing with the president. Here’s Camilla in 2017 during ICAP charity day. pic.twitter.com/0xfFmMxSOz

Two, the duchess’s husband has disagreements with the president over climate change.
During a speech last month, for instance, the prince reportedly warned of the alleged “ever-increasing, and alarming threat that climate change poses to our economy and society” and claimed that it’s “absolutely crucial that we all do what we can to address these challenges.”
Charles is a believer in forcing corporations to take action on so-called climate change, whereas Trump believes in allowing free market innovation to lead on all such issues. The prince is also a fervent supporter of the Paris Accord agreement that Trump pulled the U.S. out of two years ago.
Some believe the duchess’s wink was her way of indicating that she was about to hijack their upcoming tea sit-down by bringing up climate change and other left-wing issues:
Absolutely love Camilla’s wink here. I so hope that climate change, LGBTQI+ rights, healthcare, food safety were all topics that make a really uncomfortable meal that Trump is sitting down to. https://t.co/o8cYK9qVkf

Priority of ABC’s @TerryMoran: “To afternoon tea with Prince Charles and Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall. What’s not known, did the Prince push the President on climate change, something he’s passionate about?” #TrumpUKVisit #WorldNewsTonight pic.twitter.com/snW6ZkxoI3

Again, there’s no evidence to back this theory.
It’s more likely that the duchess winked simply because she was having a good time. That’s it. Of course, you won’t see this point much on Twitter because the only people making a fuss about the tweet are leftists, particularly those suffering from Trump Derangement Syndrome.
As for everybody else, they were likely too busy reading the real news to care about Camilla’s fun and harmless wink.
What is so “iconic?” Someone winks and it’s a big deal. DO YOU HAVE NOTHING BETTER TO REPORT ABOUT?
