Politicians might not make the most obvious heartthrobs.
But social media users were whipped into a frenzy by new photographs of Ivanka Trump appearing to gaze longingly at Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau.
The snap captures President Trump’s daughter looking captivated as she stole glances at Mr Trudeau during a roundtable discussion at the White House on Monday.
Pictures of the exchange sparked a flurry of memes on Instagram and Twitter, with users jokingly suggesting they revealed Ms Trump’s secret feelings for the Canadian politician.
Seizing on the moment, creative social media users then looked back and found other high profile figures – from the Duchess of Cambridge to actress Emma Watson – who appear to have been similarly taken when introduced to Mr Trudeau.
And it wasn’t only famous women who became the butt of the joke. President Trump and Barack Obama have both been caught on camera appearing to gaze wistfully at Mr Trudeau in snaps that inspired their own hilarious memes, and saw one internet wit declaring that ‘no one is safe!’
