When tasked with the challenge of outdoing himself just an hour ago having fallen asleep during the Queen’s speech – Trump had one response: Hold My Beer. There is a rule when dealing with a British monarch, you may look however you may not touch. Trump was apparently unaware of the protocol.
Just this evening – Trump seemed to gently touch Queen Elizabeth II on her back while sitting at the State Banquet during his visit in the United Kingdom, which would be a breach of royal protocol. The rules as such – in order to touch the Queen she must first offer her hand to you.
Michelle Obama made this same mistake 10 years ago as she went to hug the Queen, which she later referred to as an”epic fauxpas.”
The former First Lady recounted this situation in her book, “Forget that she sometimes wore a diamond crown and that I’d flown to London on a presidential jet; we were two tired ladies oppressed by our shoes. I then did what’s instinctive to me anytime I feel connected to a new person, which is to express my feelings outwardly. I laid a hand affectionately across her shoulder.”
At the moment, the Queen seemed to return the gesture at the time. While President Trump gently molested the Queen’s backside like he had with so many strippers and escorts over the decades – the Queen gave no immediate response to the break in protocol.
