Nonverbal Communication Analysis No. 3556: Mayor of Paris, Anne Hidalgo Calls Donald Trump "Stupid" While Meeting With London Mayor Sadiq Khan - Body Language (VIDEO, PHOTO)

On Tuesday the New Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, met the Mayor of Paris, Anne Hidalgo. The subject of Donald Trump was raised by a member of the press. What follows is a partial nonverbal analysis of this encounter.

The images below are from a different video (from a slightly different angle) which has since been removed from YouTube.

The interviewer begins, "Donald Trump says that obviously he would ban Muslims, but he says he'd make an exception for Sadiq Khan ..."

As he says, "... exception ...", a very good example of an overt macroexpression of contempt is displayed by Sadiq Khan.

Paris Mayor Anne Hidalgo says, "... Mr. Trump is so stupid [disgust display] My God, My God."

This expression of disgust is displayed just as she finishes saying, "... stupid ..."

This facial signal of disgust continues throughout the rest of her sentence as she rotates to her right.

It's important to note this turning away is disgust amplifier.

This website serves as an objective reference source for the science and art of Body Language/Nonverbal Communication. In an effort to be both practical and academic, many examples from/of varied cultures, politicians, professional athletes, legal cases, public figures, etc., are cited in order to teach and illustrate both the interpretation of others’ body language as well as the projection of one’s own nonverbal skills in many different contexts – not to advance any political, religious or other agenda.
