    First Lady Melania Trump frequently makes viral news, and while she doesn’t say a great deal, it’s her fashion choices that often make an impact.

    We all remember the big white hat that went viral on Twitter and the less said about her ‘I really don’t care, do you?’ jacket that she wore to a child detention centre, the better.

    It is her trademark straight (and seemingly sad) face however that has turned her into a walking meme – and this week was no exception.

    The First Lady accompanied Donald Trump to the Russia US Summit in Helsinki, Finland, this week, and as she met Russian president, Vladimir Putin, at the Presidential palace, she was caught pulling a face.


    The summit was a controversial one, given the accusations of the two colluding around the 2016 Presidential Election – something that Trump rubbished at the press conference.

    But despite the historic moment for Russia and USA, it was footage of Melania and Putin that really went viral.

    In a video that’s spreading around the internet, Melania can be seen to pull a face (described by some as horror) after making pleasantries with the Russian president.

    ‘Some people HATE the fact that I got along well with President Putin of Russia,’ Trump tweeted after the visit. ‘They would rather go to war than see this. It’s called Trump Derangement Syndrome!’

    Who else is pulling a Melania face right now?
