WATCH: The awkward moment when May got stuck in her car

A few seconds must have felt much longer when the car door of the British Prime Minister would not open.

Theresa May had just arrived for a meeting with the German Chancellor Angela Merkel, with whom she had to discuss the possibility of clarifying aspects of the Brexit deal with the European Commission.

Merkel was forced to wait for her on the red carpet and stare at the car as staff members struggled with the door handle and the car’s electronic system.

This incident, although minor, is being given a lot of significance because it occurred during a sensitive time for the UK. The way in which May was trapped in her car is an awkward echo of the way her deal got stuck in the British Parliament, and the vote on it had to be postponed.
