  • Rihanna took to Instagram to share a video of Melania and Donald Trump disembarking Air Force One, in which the First Lady refuses to let go of her Birkin bag in order to hold her husband's hand.

  • In the background of the video, Rihanna's hit single "Needed Me" plays.

  • "Melania likes art. 🤷🏿♀️," the singer wrote in the caption.

First Lady Melania Trump seems to prefer her Birkin bag over PDA with her husband, President Donald Trump.

In a video that recently went viral, Donald exerts multiple efforts to hold Melania's hand as they disembark Air Force One. Instead of accepting his advances, Melania holds tightly onto the railing with one hand and onto her brown Birkin with the other, even seemingly jerking her hand away from him at certain points.

Rihanna poked fun at the viral incident by uploading the video to her Instagram—only this time, her hit single "Needed Me" is blasting in the background. "I was good on my own, that's the way it was / That's the way it was / You was good on the low for a faded fuck / On some faded love / Shit, what the fuck you complaining for? / Feeling jaded huh? / Used to trip off that shit I was kickin' to you / Had some fun on the run though, I'll give it to you / But baby," RiRi sings.
