Bishop blasts president’s ‘such good shape’ comment

AUSTRALIAN Foreign Minister Julie Bishop yesterday criticized comments by US President Donald Trump on French first lady Brigitte Macron’s appearance.

“You’re in such good shape,” Trump was filmed telling her during his first state visit to France last week.

“I wonder if she could say the same of him?” Bishop told the Australian Broadcasting Corp, when asked whether she would be flattered or offended if the comment were directed at her. “I’d be taken aback, I think. It’s a rather interesting comment to make,” she said.

Bishop declined further comment on the remark, but added an unprompted observation on Trump’s use of social media, saying she wouldn’t “run a commentary on his Twitter account.”
