Melania Trump 'Slaps' Donald's Hand Away While On Visit In Israel

Melania Trump 'Slaps' Donald's Hand Away While On Visit In Israel

President Trump and First Lady Melania are currently in Israel as part of a visit.

They've visited the Western Wall in Jerusalem's Old City, the Church of the Holy Sepulchre and they visited the President's Residence.

However, what's got people really talking is the way Melania Trump acted when they arrived. As you can see in the video below, Donald reaches out his hand to take hers, and she responds by refusing to hold it and 'slapping' it away.

Clearly, Donald's in the doghouse... but why?!

Yikes. I'll be honest, I watched this like five times. It reminds me of those You've Been Framed type of videos where people jump off railings on their bikes. You know they're going to fall, and you know they're going to hurt themselves... but you still find yourself searching 'BMX bike fails' at 4am, covered in Doritos and wondering what happened in your life to make you act this way. Just me? Cool.

This comes after Al Green, the representative of the Ninth Congressional District of Texas in the United States House of Representatives, called for the impeachment of Donald Trump.

If you're not sure what impeachment is, don't worry. We're here for you. Okay, so impeachment is designed to bring the accused's eventual removal from office - whether president or an official. Easy peasy.

The US Constitution states a president 'shall be removed from office on impeachment for, and conviction of, treason, bribery, or other high crimes or misdemeanours'.

Green backed up his impeachment call by saying: "These acts, when combined, amount to intimidation and obstruction. If the president is not above the law he should be charged by way of impeachment by the US House of Representatives.

"Our country is in a state of crisis. Every day Donald Trump remains president puts our democracy at risk. It's time to take drastic, yet necessary action."

Green told the House: "I rise today with a heavy heart. I rise today with a sense of responsibility and sense of duty to the people who elected me, a sense of duty to this country, a sense of duty to the constitution of the USA. I call for the impeachment of the president of the US.

"I do this as I believe in the ideal of this county, government by the people for the people. There is a belief in the county that nobody is above the law; this includes the president.

"This is your day to act, it is time for you to act, it is time for you to let us know where you stand. I've seen a poll that says the people are for impeachment.

"The American people should stand up. This is not to be taken lightly, and I do not. I believe this is where your patriotism is shown. It is a position of conscience for me. Each person has to make their own decision."

Trump's life is like a TV reality show. I can't keep up with this drama.
