In the opinion of some, Donald Trump can be an extremely awkward human being — and he seems to have only gotten more awkward since entering the White House.
His inability to act like a normal human being is especially on display when he hosts a world leader, and the two are thrust in front of a million cameras capturing the interactions. We get that posing in front of a bunch of cameras can be unsettling, but we expected more from a reality star turned president. Remember that uncomfortably long hand shake with the Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, which lasted 19 seconds? In that amount of time you can take and upload a selfie or add a few songs to your Spotify playlist. Honestly, we still cringe watching the now viral moment — nearly two years later.
Like, we said, he is just very, very awkward.
Don't believe us yet? Watch this clip where he seems to be completely ignoring Angela Merkel's suggestion of a handshake, because you know, diplomacy is overrated:
Or when he tries to hold his wife's hand during a press event (what is up with Trump and hands?):
At the moment, Trump is being visited by French president Emmanuel Macron. It's been interesting, to say the least.
And Macron is just smiling through it as best he can:
As a gift to mark his visit on Monday, Macron gave the Trumps an oak tree, which they then ceremoniously planted together on the lawn of the White House:
The pics from the event look...unique?
It was obviously memed immediately:
Some thought the tree was a symbolic troll from Macron, because of Trump's decision to pull the United States out of the Paris Agreement.
There's just a lot going on.
Soon you will be free to go home, Macron. Just grin and bear it.
