Is Theresa May Making Fun Of Donald Trump?by

In an age where political fatigue appears to have set in for many people on both sides of the Atlantic – the election of Donald Trump in the US and the Brexit referendum result largely being to blame for this last year – humor has quickly become the go-to bastion of support that many people who voted against either of these big changes have flocked to in the past few months. Facebook, Twitter and more have erupted in tongue-in-cheek memes and viral jokes, showing that while some people may argue that satire died the day Trump got elected, laughing about a situation still very much holds its merits.

It appears, however, that even UK prime Minister Theresa May is joining in on a joke regarding Trump that has been doing the rounds since the President first started his election campaign almost two years ago. The media and the online community have, in varying numbers, made jokes relating to the size of the US President’s hands – with some photos even claiming that he had an image where he was accompanying former President Barack Obama manipulated to increase their size. Trump, according to these jokes, has small hands – and while this is clearly a case of subjective opinion, May appears to have cheekily waded into the fray with a comment made at a fundraiser this week.

The event – the Black and White Ball, an annual occasion where funds are raised for the Conservative Party – saw the Prime Minister advise the crowd “I don’t think I have received such a big hand since I walked down the colonnade at the White House”. It’s thought that May is referring to famous pictures where she was snapped holding hands with the new President in a walk during her recent visit to the US. The joke, if intended, is a brave one – as Trump has famously fought against jibes about his hands from political opponents and more besides on previous occasions. Trump, too, has famously taken on anyone in the mainstream through his Twitter account – could May be in the firing line for some Trumpian wit?

May and Trump’s ‘special relationship’ – as the camaraderie between the heads of the UK and US have come to name it – will be tested over their first year on either side of the Atlantic. Will it be a relationship that weathers the storms that could be set to come? We will have to wait and see.
