Posted on 08/26/2019 8:18:37 AM PDT by BenLurkin
French President Emmanuel Macron issued a fiery response to Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro for social media comments that appeared to criticize the appearance of French first lady Brigitte Macron.
The French presidents remarks came on the final day of the annual meeting of the Group of Seven leaders in Biarritz, France, where the subject of raging fires in the Amazon had led to criticism of the Brazilian government and a pledge by world leaders to start a $20 million fund to help protect the rainforest.
Bolsonaro...has called the international criticism of his government by European nations a reflection of a colonialist mentality."
...pushed the political dispute into personal territory Sunday, when he appeared to endorse a meme from a supporter that compared the appearance of the French first lady, 67, with Brazils first lady, Michelle Bolsonaro, 37.
On Saturday, a supporter of the Brazilian president posted a photograph of the two world leaders and their wives on Bolsonaros official Facebook page, with a comment that suggested Macron was jealous of Bolsonaro.
In response, Bolsonaro responded with laughter and wrote: Do not embarrass the guy.

She smells like Elderberries ?
Trump of the Tropics. Getting under liberals skin works.
Listen for 66 she’s doing a good job of looking good.
It’s just an ODD age difference.
But whatever floats his boat, I guess.
Brazilian wife is a babe.
Well, here at FR we all DID make a lot of unflattering comparisons between Moochelle and Carla Bruni.
Its just an ODD age difference.
And how their relationship got started, and her chicken legs which she should know to keep covered at all times.
How can a person not say something? She’s a public figure.
Because Moochelle looks like a man.
There is no way I’d marry or even go with a woman decades older than me. In my opinion you should be a contemporary of your spouse.
World leaders are making everything about themselves. Macron should have the maturity not to have childish fights with other leaders over personal matters. Trump doesn’t do that and even treats enemies as friends for the sake of better relations.
Phillipe got hot for teacher 20 years ago when she was his instructor at an elite French Private Academy...
He is her 2nd hubby. I’ll leave you to figure out the genesis of the age difference in that marriage.
Hot for teacher
Is there such a thing as a French weasel? (No answer required.)
If some perky gal young enough to be my granddaughter wants to be the third Mrs. Lurkin, I’m in.
So he made a “yo mama” joke?
Bolsonaro is 64, his wife 37, 27 years younger. They married in 2007, when she was around 25 and he 52.
Macron is 41, his wife 66, 25 years older.
So about the same spousal age spread, but in different directions.
Ordinarily, I would think it petty to criticize someone's looks, but the fact that the press made Michelle out to be the second coming of Jackie O made the criticisms valid, IMO.
I might have fun of Maricon and his elderly MILF who probably molested him in high school but it is off-topic for public politics. Bolsonaro once again proved he is a loud mouth and buffoon.
