The other day, French President Emmanuel Macron made a funny slip. The politician surprised the public with a strange compliment to the wife of the Prime Minister of Australia.

On May 1, Emmanuel Macron flew to Australia for a three-day visit. In Sydney, a joint press conference was held with Prime Minister of Australia Malcolm Turnbull, at which politicians discussed cooperation between the countries in the defense, economy and security sphere.
At the end of the speech, Macron thanked Turnbull for his hospitality in English. “I want to thank you for the cordial welcome, thank you and your delicious wife,” the French president said. This is reported by the American edition Vanity Fair.
In social networks they laughed at the president’s reservation. Many media outlets also wrote about the curious situation in which the French leader fell. Macron, in all likelihood, made a reservation or incorrectly translated the French word delicieux, translated as “charming, delightful.” In the opinion of Internet users, Emmanuel used the word delicious, which translates as “delicious” and is used to describe food.
