Macron Subtly Insults Trump at NATO Meeting
« on: 23:20 26-May-2017 »
Clearly an artist at diplomacy which only exists in its most exquisite and developed form in France, Mr. Macron thoroughly insults Mr. Trump with only a handshake:

You must be seeing something that I can't see. The hand on the forearm?  Mehh no big deal.
In Russia we only had two TV channels. Channel One was propaganda. Channel Two consisted of a KGB officer telling you: Turn back at once to Channel One. Yakov Smirnoff

Macron walks right past Trump who is ready to shake hands.  Then he shakes hands with several other leaders, his back to Trump.  Then he turns around and acts like he might walk past Trump.  Trump then smiles and offers his hand, but not far from his body, as if half expecting Macron to ignore him again.  But, Macron not only takes the hand, he appears to be going for some sort of finger crushing handshake there.  Something is up with the braced, two handed technique.

What you see depends upon whether you are for or against Mr Trump!   ;)

Observe this previous Trump/Macron handshake:

Note that Trump has a history of crushing handshakes and apparently Macron was specifically warned to expect that.  Trump also is on record saying he finds handshakes unhygienic.

Trump gives Macron a final pat on the back.  "That's ok young fella, you'll learn."
Political Correctness is a doctrine fostered by a delusional, illogical minority, and rabidly promoted by an unscrupulous mainstream media, which holds forth the proposition that it is entirely possible to pick up a turd by the clean end!!

It also depends on whether Elvis is singing "Love me Tender" in the background.  It changes things.
