Dear America: We are all laughing at you. Sincerely, The World

Trump refuses to shake hands with someone who, unlike him, (a) is a grown-up and (b) has grown-up sized hands.


  1. Kevin T. says:

    Damn, poor Angela Merkel. I bet she never expected to have two international cringe-worthy moments with the two worse presidents in US history.

  2. Eric Weiss says:

    I’d laugh if I wasn’t in a combined state of disbelief, disgust and sadness.

  3. Robert Frindt says:

    Despite all their differences, Merkel and Trump do have one thing in common… they were both wiretapped by Obama.


  4. Kevin says:

    He was afraid that she learned how to shake hands from JT and he wouldn’t be able to pull her off balance.

  5. Jean says:

    I think there was a handshake when they were standing at separate podiums, but I might be wrong. At the seated staged photo op, el Trumpo did not even look in Merkel’s direction. Maybe before the cameras were rolling, he tried his famous grab and grope, and she gave him a well-placed kick. Just my imaginings!

    Getting to look like a real chore for USA “allies” always having to go to Washington to pay tribute.

  7. Charlie says:

    To suck up your pride, sense of dignity, integrity and self-respect to then have to sit along this assclown fuck-wit; Angela Merkel is a leader of all leaders. I’m surprised she didn’t just punch him in the face and knock his ass out. Would be nice to see someone (preferably a woman) put him in his place.

      “Backpfeifengesicht” German for “a face that cries out for a fist”. I’m sure Angela Merkel was thinking that very word as she sat beside the clown president.

    It is really quite funny. The world notices his trick handshake, and along comes Trudeau and neutralizes it for an adoring public. Obviously, the un-President cannot abide such a humiliating and public `loss, and he will never let it happen again. Plus, how would it look if he got his arm yanked out of its socket by a gurl? There’s no winning that one. And why would he care if it looks churlish? He patented churlish.
