A SCORNFUL side-eye from Angela Merkel at Donald Trump has gone viral with a number of internet joksters creating memes.
The glance followed a comment made by the US President during a joint press conference on Friday which he joked the at least he and Merkel had wiretapping “in common” – referencing claims that he and the German leader were put under surveillance under the Obama administration.
The National Security Agency did bug Merkel’s phones though Trump’s claims that he was wire-tapped during the campaign are yet to be proved.
The German Chancellor struggled to hide her scepticism with her looks towards Mr Trump going viral.
One meme shows Mrs Merkel looking towards Mr Trump with the caption: “What happened to America?”
Another reads: “When you realise you are now Leader of the Western World”.
One states: “Chancellor Merkel is all of us”.
The head of the of the FBI piled pressure on Mr Trump to make a humiliating climbdown over claims President Obama wiretapped his glitzy Trump Tower office.
James Comey told US lawmakers he was not aware of any evidence to support allegations made in a Trump Twitter rant earlier this month.
In a scathing rebuke, he added that the US Department of Justice has nothing to back up the explosive fact-free claims.
"I have no information that supports those tweets, and we have looked carefully inside the FBI", he told a congressional hearing.
National Security Agency Director Michael Rogers also laid into the Trump team's wiretap allegations.
