On Monday, Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau visited Donald Trump at the White House. After a predictably awkward handshake and a presumably even more uncomfortable chat between the two, Trump held out his hand for Trudeau to shake — and, for a split second, Trudeau just stared at it blankly.
It was only a moment. Trudeau, ever the statesman, swiftly took Trump’s hand and allowed the president to shake it exuberantly. But he hesitated, and, fortunately, a gazillion and one photographers were on hand to capture that exact moment of hesitation.
“Really?” Trudeau’s eyes are telegraphing as he gazes upon Trump’s outstretched hand. “I mean, really? I have to do this now?”
