NZ's 'pregnant leftie PM' gets photographed with various world leaders across Europe. The Internet loses its mind.
Jacinda Ardern has been in Paris, Berlin and London this week for talks with French President Emmanuel Macron, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, British Prime Minister Theresa May and Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau (swoon.)
Oh, and she's also made Time Magazine's list of the year's 100 most influential people.
And while apparently due to Ardern being a woman (shock) and pregnant (horror) some people have lost their minds (though our PM is not a stranger to weird sexist happenings,) other people have done some top-notch social media-ing. And yes, I have included one of my own tweets in here. And yes, I do feel a bit weird about it. But #TGIF, right?!
Here are some of our favourite (and not so favourite) Twitter hot takes:

Jacinda Ardern is basically a Game of Thrones character.— Alice Workman (@workmanalice) April 19, 2018

correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought making people sit in order of hotness was not very pc in 2018 pic.twitter.com/LxVdAvI8qJ— Susan Strongman (@SusanStrongman) April 18, 2018
Of course, not everyone is happy - like whoever those people are who spend their days furiously tweeting unflattering superzoom pics of the PM’s face are.
And then there’s Mark Richardson *sad face emoji* aaand a bit of #EverydaySexism from the British tabloids.
