I think tall people just tend to sit that way. :shrug: I always do, although I’ve never encountered that silly phrase manspreading 'til just now. It seems cruel to ask people to squish themselves into an unnatural sitting position, because our body movements and body language play a critical role in how we feel about ourselves, and just our mood in general. I’m sitting in a hard wooden chair with my back straight and slightly arched, and my feet are flatly planted on the floor a little bit wider than shoulder width. That seems about right, and it provides optimum comfort, for me at least. It would be cartoonish to sit with your feet three feet apart, but less than that is just comfy. And Trump’s fairly tall, I think, so it’s to be expected. Why should he fret over these stumpy busybodies criticizing him for something this unbelievably minor?
Oh, and I do recall the lovable Konrad Lorenz talking about how comfortable and confident body language is of paramount importance when training animals, so there’s that, too. Not to necessarily liken Justin Trudeau to a poodle, but you see what I’m saying.
