Trump "discreetly" flips middle finger at Italian Prime Minister




"President Donald Trump appeared to give the Prime Minister of Italy, Paolo Gentiloni, the middle finger while to scratching his head at the G7 summit in Taormina, Sicily.

G7 stands for “group of 7” and consists of Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States. The group is dedicated to advancing the world’s economy as well as combating climate change under the 2015 Paris Agreement. However, as well as apparently flicking off Gentiloni, Trump’s intentions regarding American participation in the Paris climate deal, agreed to under President Barack Obama, remained unknown on Sunday, reports The Guardian.

Trump has been the odd man out at G7, apparently by choice. While all other world leaders went for a walk with each other through Taormina, Trump chose to ride in a golf cart, reports The Hill.

Not to be outdone, “The White House Facebook page failed to acknowledge First Gentleman of Luxembourg Gauthier Destenay, married to Prime Minister Xavier Bettel, in a post featuring the spouses of world leaders attending this week’s G7 summit in Sicily,” writes Newsweek. The Luxembourgians are the only gay couple of Trump’s foreign counterparts."

Do you think Trump just idolizes Putin because of his philosophy of politics?

.... but the way he smiled afterwards tells me that he flipped the bird to
a head of state at a diplomatic function.

Please make it stop.

17. The thing is whether it was intentional or not, he's not believable anymore

He's done so many rude, childish things that its more believable that he DID flip the bird intentionally. He's brought down the office of the Presidency to such a low bar the world over. Its his own fault if most take it as purposeful whether he meant it as that or not.

20. Not even subtle.

There was not even an effort to make it appear he was scratching - flipped the bird and brought his hand right back down.

Such juvenile behavior.

26. Some will interpret this as kind of "punk" because he sticks it to the man.

But it isn't about that. It is the entitled American Psycho brand of antisocialism.
