Maybe I'm overthinking this.

When I saw the video of this French military band playing French electropop band Daft Punk's "Get Lucky" at the official Bastille Day ceremonies, and how President Macron seemed to be barely containing his laughter, I thought Macron was trolling Trump.

What do you think? Was Macron making a subtle dig?

Can you help us out?
