Included below is the Schedule for Day Three of the G7 in Biarritz. We will also include the transcript from President Trump/Macron presser when it becomes available. But first, we have to talk about this red dress.
My mom was a model in her youth, and she used to say, “Never be afraid to wear RED!” Well, no one wears red like FLOTUS Melania Trump.
And some killer Ruby Slippers………….
Look at the back of this dress, and then notice where everyone else’s eyes are looking.
And who decided to force the wives, in heels, to walk on pea gravel? THAT person should be fired, asap. Guaranteed it wasn’t a woman who thought up the staging location. Too easy to roll a heel and break an ankle.
Okay, okay…… on to more important things…. like ruling the world.
Well, we can’t really tell how it is going in Biarritz, can we? Most of the photos show our POTUS looking disinterested, peeved, too warm, and impatient. Yet, we KNOW a photo is no way to judge a situation for accuracy or temperature in the room, and the media vitriol is at warp speed, and we can’t trust their photos. The only smiling pics of President Trump we’ve seen are the ones with Cousin Boris.
Prime Minister Abe and President Trump took center stage this afternoon to announce an “Agreement in Principle” on the trade deal between Japan and the USA. The media actually complained because it was “sudden” and they didn’t have time to get situated. SMH, the media thinks they are more important than the leaders.
Formal signing of a JUSA expected to occur at the UN General Assembly at the end of September. Trade Ambassador Lighthizer looked happy. Apparently, the deal is very good news for our farmers and involves industrial equipment importation (keeping in place auto tariffs), and a further agreement on E-commerce.
The African Delegation, Modi from India, Al Sisi from Egypt, and the addition of others was interesting but we’re left wondering….. why are they there? This isn’t the United Nations. It’s not the G20. What is Macron doing? Check out Abe’s face. Abe seems to always know exactly what is going on. He’s a good leader.
The whole thing, the agenda, the location the attendees, lack of formal attire for evening, it …. just…. seems …. “off”.
