Russian President Vladimir Putin likes to act tough, but he was recently embarrassed by a photo from his meeting with First Lady Melania Trump.
Melania recently met with Putin. For reference, Melania is reported to be 5 feet 11 inches tall, while Putin is only 5 feet 6 inches.
Not long after the meeting, the Internet exploded after a photo emerged showing the much shorter Putin looking up at Melania.

Melania and Putin sat side-by-side at the G20 dinner, where they reportedly spoke about gender issues.
“The president remained satisfied,” Putin’s press secretary Dimitry Peskov later remarked to Russian news station Rossiya-1 about their conversation, adding that the two discussed possibly working together to enhance gender equality and the economic role of women, according to the U.K. Daily Express. “I think there was certain sympathy.”
Conservative Tribune reports:
This was not their first meeting. The two met earlier that afternoon when Trump was sent in to help wrap up what had originally been scheduled to be a 30-minute conversation between her husband, U.S. President Donald Trump, and President Putin.
The meeting wound up continuing for another hour, despite the first lady’s assistance.
“So clearly she failed,” Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, who had also been present for the meeting, quipped to reporters afterward.
Here’s how the Internet reacted:
