Australian Diplomat Flips Back Trump’s Appraisal of French First Lady

SYDNEY, Australia — Australia’s foreign minister briefly put diplomacy aside on Sunday with a sly retort to comments that President Trump made about the physical appearance of the first lady of France.

Foreign Minister Julie Bishop was asked in a televised interview how she would react if Mr. Trump told her, as he told Brigitte Macron, the wife of President Emmanuel Macron of France, that she was in “good shape.”

“I’d be taken aback, I think,” Ms. Bishop said. “It’s a rather interesting comment to make. I wonder if she could say the same of him.”

Asked whether she found the remark “condescending,” Ms. Bishop demurred and said she would not comment on the conversation between Mr. Trump and Ms. Macron.
