Hopefully the President can take a joke.
The Holy See solemnly entered his first meeting with the President on Wednesday morning and left it joking with First Lady Melania Trump — possibly about her husband’s size.
Through a translator, Pope Francis asked Trump, “What do you give him to eat — potica?”
Laughing, the First Lady did not dispute the Holy See’s assessment and replied, “Potica.”
The Pope was asking Slovenian-born Melania Trump about a nut-filled cake known in her homeland as “Potica.” He tasted the traditional treat when Slovenian Prime Minister Miro Cerar visited the Vatican in 2015.
