While there many serious stories from the G7 Summit, the one which has given much-needed relief on social media is about a picture involving Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and US First Lady Melania Trump. A photo of them air-kissing, a custom in Europe where the G7 Summit was held, has gone viral. It has led to a number of memes being created on the image. The image was taken by a European Pressphoto Agency photographer for a family photo during an event to conclude the Summit which took place in Biarritz, France.
The reaction to this has been hilarious. Several Twitter users have shipped the two, with Donald Trump invariably being the butt of all jokes.

Netizens on social media remembered other occasions when the Internet made similar speculation about other global public personalities and Trudeau. A pictures of Ivanka Trump looking at Justin Trudeau was one such occasion where netizens claimed she was floored by him. Another victim of internet gossip was Duchess Kate Middleton.
On Sunday, Melania Trump, French President Emmanuel Macron's wife Brigitte Macron and other world leaders' spouses visited the home of a famed French red pepper and tasting Basque country wine on the sidelines of the G-7 summit. They are visiting the village of Espelette on Sunday, famed for its piment d'Espelette peppers. The peppers were used in the dinner that the Group of Seven leaders shared in nearby Biarritz on Saturday night. The spouses lunched at the Villa Arnaga, built by the French playwright who wrote "Cyrano de Bergerac."
