Watch Melania Trump Seem To Swat Away Donald Trump's Hand As He Reaches Out For Her

It certainly looks like she's palming him off, but is it a bad angle? We investigate

President Donald Trump and his First Lady - Melania Trump - have had something of a rocky start to their career as the leading couple of American politics.

For the rest of us with relationships, we're not sure we'll be following their example any time soon.

Day one being when he was a twice-divorced TV personality and real estate mogul and she was a Solvenian glamour model around the time they started dating in the 1990s.

However, while not taking their relationship as paradigm, Trump and Melania as a presidential couple is infinitely interesting.

Despite the assumption that they must have undergone rigorous media training, the pair can't help but let each other down with some seriously disastrous body language.

At Trump's inauguration in January he not only left Melania in the car whilst he made his way towards the Obamas (thankfully they waited for her), but there was also the chilling time Melania was all smiles when Trumped looked at her, only to resume a stony face once he turned his back.

Awkward? Extremely.

This prompted #prayformelania to spread like wildfire across social media and people ,with varying levels of humour, suggesting Melania was in a controlling relationship.

Not a month later, Melania appeared to 'flinch' when her husband touched her.

It's not all 'get off me' gestures, however. There was the time Melania nudged her husband to remind him how they do the national anthem in America.

Real evidence has also been found that Melania might actually dislike her husband. Evidence on Twitter, anyway. She supposedly favorited two tweets which implied her not-so-subtle feelings towards her husband.

True, she might not have totally understood how Twitter works. We've all accidentally liked tweets, and it's since come out that Melania apparently monitors media which is unfavorable to Trump (she alerts her husband to stories she thinks might make him look bad). There's also the possibility her account was hacked.

Either way, she's since been spotted - again - seemingly swatting away her hubby's tiny orange hands.

We now have further video insight into the Trump marriage, with a clip of the pair having just landed in Israel from Saudi Arabia. Turns out Melania still thinks her limb's movements are imperceivable to the naked eye.

In the video, it appears Donald is reaching out to Melania as she walks behind him.

Her hand then extends out swiftly and completes what looks like a light slap, and he drops his arm.

Perhaps she just didn't feel like holding his hand. Perhaps the 'slap' looks more aggressive than it actually was. Perhaps it's the angle and distance that means it's not a tap/slap at all.

OR she hates his guts and never wants to touch him ever again? Who knows.

Take a look at the video and decide for yourself:

Either way, the video has picked up mega-speed. It's certainly this week's viral sensation and has added a lot more fuel for the #prayformelania hashtag.
