During the G-20 Summit this weekend, Russian President Vladimir Putin finally met face to face with President Donald Trump.
The meeting of two of the most powerful men in the world certainly had fireworks of its own, yet commenters online were just as enamored with another Putin encounter with a member of the Trump family.
The Russian leader dined with Melania Trump on Friday for the G-20 gala dinner. The two met for a photo-op before their dinner, and the internet seemed to notice one very important thing: Melania made Putin look tiny.
Melania: 5’11” – Putin: 5’6”
Melania was much, much taller.
The internet had a field day at the expense of the ‘macho’ Russian leader:

Poor Putin. He never stood a chance.
