Some video of the incident was also posted on various social media sites such as Twitter and Facebook after which the US President was largely trolled and criticized.

Notably, Brigitte Macron is 25 years older than her husband Emmanuel Macron, who was also her student back when Macron was in high school. The fact that the French President’s wife was also his high school teacher has drawn international attention in the past.
