Trump Planted A Tree With The President Of France And It Got Weird Fast

In the opinion of some, Donald Trump can be an extremely awkward human being. This is especially on display when he hosts a world leader, and the two are thrust in front of a million cameras capturing the interactions.

It can be very, very awkward.

Like in this clip where he seems to be ignoring Angela Merkel’s suggestion of a handshake:

Or when he tries to hold his wife’s hand during a press event:

At the moment, Trump is being visited by French president Emmanuel Macron. It’s been interesting, to say the least.

And Macron is just smiling through it as best he can:

As a gift to mark his visit on Monday, Macron gave the Trumps an oak tree, which they then ceremoniously planted together on the lawn of the White House:

The pics from the event look…unique?

It was obviously memed immediately:

Some thought the tree was a symbolic troll from Macron, because of Trump’s decision to pull the United States out of the Paris Agreement.

There’s just a lot going on.

Soon you will be free to go home, Macron. Just grin and bear it.

People In France Are Rioting Over Discount Nutella

Americans tend to either see the French as elitist and a representation of everything intellectual, snobby, and fancy that they despise, or they love them for exactly all those reasons. Actually, the French are just like people everywhere—crazy for sales.

A French supermarket called Intermarché offered a huge deal on the country’s national breakfast spread, Nutella, and things went sideways really fast.

Some stores faced a line of 200 people waiting to burst in and get as much 70 percent discount Nutella as they could find, and there is insane riot footage of everyone trying to grab as much as they can:

“Seriously? All this for some Nutella?” the caption reads. Yes, my friend. Tout ça pour du Nutella.

People caught the stampede for spread from every angle:

Look at the smiles on the faces of people escaping with armfuls of discount Nutella:

But because it’s France, it was described as being like an “orgy.”

On employee told NDTV, “People just rushed in, shoving everyone, breaking things. It was like an orgy. We were on the verge of calling the police.”

Honestly, if your orgy involves this much screaming and pushing, you should call the police. The key party has gotten out of hand.

People have very different perspectives on this Nutella hysteria, which directly correlate to their own enjoyment of it/Francophilia.

Other supermarkets seem to be baiting consumers??

And what’s especially crazy, is that CNN International reports this isn’t even the first reported incident of Nutella violence. In 2015, an elderly man says he was punched in the face after complaining another customer took too many Nutella waffle samples. 

Folks, that was in America. We’re as bad as they are. Worse, because we have a whole holiday dedicated to trampling people for sales—it’s called Black Friday and don’t act like you haven’t gone crazy for deals in your life.

They also reported that in at least one Intermarché location, the police were called after “altercations” broke out.

So, what have we learned?

The passion, the flavor, the spread. France.
