Someone suggested a story about a video from Donald and Melania Trump’s first overseas trip. The video, which had just gone viral, showed the couple walking down a red carpet on the airport tarmac in Israel. When Donald reached for Melania’s hand, she slapped it away with a sharp flick of her wrist.“I didn’t see that,” Pecker said, on the speakerphone.The half-dozen or so men in the room exchanged looks.
