She can't stand him': 'The View' mocks Trump over Melania's apparent refusal to hold his hand

Co-hosts on "The View" tore into President Donald Trump's marriage to First Lady Melania Trump over a perceived refusal by Melania to hold her husband's hand.

On Wednesday's airing of the ABC daytime show, the co-hosts ridiculed the president over a recent video appearing to show Melania slapping away her husband's hand while disembarking Air Force One upon arrival in Israel.

“The first couple just stepped off a plane in Israel hours ago and there may be no peace in the Middle East between the two of them,” co-host Whoopi Goldberg joked.

"In a rare move, he went to hold her hand which she apparently slapped away," Goldberg said, and featured video footage of the purported incident.

Goldberg reasoned, "Maybe she thought he was reaching over to pinch her on the butt. Maybe she was ... 'Don't do that here.'"

The audience roared with laughter as co-host Joy Behar added, "She can't stand him," referencing Melania.

After the laughter died down, Behar continued and said that Melania's hand-flicking move could be a result of feeling disrespected by her husband.

"He always lets her walk behind him ... he's such a non-gentleman to the girl," Behar explained. "She comes off the plane, she's up there, he's down here; he's like a toddler."

The Israel incident wasn't the only one that occurred in recent days.

When the Trumps landed in Rome on Tuesday, Melania smoothly deflected yet another attempt by the president to hold his wife's hand.

While walking down the stairs of Air Force One after landing in Rome, Melania reached up to brush her hair back as the president simultaneously attempted to grab a hold of his wife's hand.

This was the second time during their international tour that Trump made an attempt hand-holding but was seemingly shut down instead.
