French President Emmanuel Macron was lowered onto a nuclear submarine by a helicopter in a show of France’s role on the nuclear stage.
Macron spent four hours underwater, according to CNN, but people are more interested in how he looked being helicoptered onto the submarine.
To be fair, it's all very James Bond.

People have been comparing him to former mayor Boris Johnson, who didn't quite pull it off as well...
And to Donald Trump...

Love the way Macron can obliquely troll Trump just by being Macron. Can anyone imagine Donnie doing this? https://t.co/x7Bli6BoCC — Erik Larson (@Erik Larson)
