AWKWARD: Does Donald Trump Recognize His Own Wife?

This may be the weirdest Donald Trump video yet.

Donald Trump has always had a weird *relationship* with Melania. From their weird body language at the inauguration to this heartbreaking display of disrespect at the White House:

To this really sad shot of a lonely Melania descending the steps of Air Force 1 after Trump raced off, seemingly forgetting her:

Well, now it appears he may *actually* not know who she is. This may be the most awkward video yet, which says a lot.

Melania gave a lovely introduction of her husband* at an event at Joint Base Andrews. After such a glowing introduction from a spouse, what do husbands normally do? Hug? A kiss on the cheek? Maybe a chaste peck on the lips? Yes, that is pretty normal. What did Trump do? None of the above.

He reached out his tiny little toddler hands, gave her a firm "all business" handshake and pointed to a seat and told her to sit down. Like you would a coworker or assistant. Not how you treat your wife.

The clip reminded me of another disturbing incident from early July during which Trump literally walks by his limo as he gets off a Air Force One. The plane is RIGHT in front of the steps, can't miss it. The driver has the door open. It isn't like he had to walk 100 feet. It was, maybe, 5 or 10 feet down the steps. A HUGE honking limo with the Presidential seal on it.

What does Trump do? Walks right by it like it is invisible. Maybe he thought he could grab a bus. No idea. But he clearly was lost.

Maybe one day he will wake up, fly home and forget he is President*. One can dream, right?
