French President Emmanuel Macron has called Lucy Turnbull, the wife of the Prime Minister of Australia, delicious. According to the ABC channel, the embarrassment occurred at a press conference of the leaders of the two countries in Sydney.
“I want to thank you for your hospitality, thank you and your delicious wife,” said Macron.
The French president’s quote quickly spread on social networks. Some users noted that Macron could have incorrectly translated the French word délicieuse – “charming”, with the English adjective delicious.
Nevertheless, we think she took it well.
