On Wednesday, the United States President Donald Trump has found himself at the center of a ferocious controversy after he was found scratching his forehead with his “middle finger” when a lady astronaut from NASA has corrected him during a video conference at the International Space Station.
During a video call to the US Astronauts Jessica Meir and Christina Koch, who were present at the ISS, President Trump has congratulated them for being the first-two female astronauts to walk in the space.
President Trump was accompanied by her daughter, Ivanka Trump at the ISS, was quoted saying, “We are thrilled to be speaking live with two brave American astronauts who are making history joining us during their spacewalk…And this is the first time for a woman outside of the space station.”
However, Jessica Meir has rectified the Us President and said that they weren’t the “first female astronauts to walk in space”. In fact, it was “the first time that there have been two women outside” together.
After the lady astronaut corrected Donald Trump, he was spotted scratching his forehead with the “middle finger”.
President Trump’s gesture did not go well with the users of Twitter, who charged him of “flipping middle finger” at her statement.
A Twitter user said, “He gives them the middle finger after they correct his erroneous remark. How presidential.”
Another Twitter user wrote, “Was Trump giving her the finger as she corrected him?”
One user stated, “There is absolutely no way that was not on purpose.”
Jessica Meir and Christina Koch’s historic eight-hour spacewalk took place last week, and their task was to detect a broke part of the ISS Solar Power Network.
