«Jackets On? Jackets Off?» : G7 Leaders Mock Putin In Stripping Off Jokes.

'Jackets On? Jackets Off?': G7 Leaders Mock Putin In Stripping Off Jokes

UK PM Boris Johnson said, "We've got to show them our pecs."

Elmau Castle, Germany:

World leaders mocked Russian President Vladimir Putin's tough-man image at a G7 lunch in Germany on Sunday, joking about whether they should strip down to or even less.

"Jackets on? Jackets off? Do we take our coats off?" British Prime Minister Boris Johnson asked as he sat down at the table in Bavaria's picturesque Elmau Castle, where Chancellor Olaf Scholz was hosting the summit of seven powerful democracies.

The leader from Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the United States and the European Union pondered the dilemma.

Canada's Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, suggested they wait for the official picture before disrobing but then Boris Johnson quipped "We have to show that we're tougher than Putin" and the joke kept rolling.

"We're going to get the bare-chested horseback riding display," Trudeau said, referring to Putin's infamous 2009 photo-op of himself riding shirtless on a horse.

"Horseback riding is the best," European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen said, without apparently weighing in on the clothing issue itself.

Boris Johnson interjected: "We've got to show them our pecs."

The leaders posed -- jackets on -- for photos before reporters were hustled out of the room, leaving the sartorial debate behind closed doors.
