After a viral video of First Lady Melania Trump appearing to refuse to hold her husband’s hand, Rihanna decided to indirectly offer some commentary in true RiRi fashion by uploading a hilarious video to her social media.
In a video clip that went viral on Monday (August 17), Trump awkwardly makes multiple attempts to hold Melania’s hand while they’re exiting Air Force One. Instead of accepting his advances, Melania tightly holds onto the railing with one hand while clutching a brown Birkin in the other, even appearing to pull away from her husband as she descends the plane’s stairway on her own.
Rihanna poked fun at the viral exchange.
She uploaded the video to her Instagram page with 2016 singl “Needed Me” as the backing track. She wrote in the caption “Melania likes art,” with a shrugging emoji.
Rih also included a reminder counting down the number of days until the approaching November presidential election with the hashtag, “#78days.”

The caption was a reference to Rihanna’s previous post from over the weekend that stirred up a conversation online. The singer and business mogul posted a collection of photos from a recent visit to the Cadillac Ranch tourist spot in Amarillo, Texas where she left behind a message for Trump.
In black letters, Rih spray painted “F**k Trump,” on the hood of an upturned vehicle. She captioned the Instagram post as “art.”
