So, Trump's Handshake With The Japanese Prime Minister Got Pretty Weird

The President of these United States of America met with the Prime Minister of Japan on Friday. They discussed some stuff. Then, they shook hands. And that's when things just got kind of objectively weird.

The best part of the 19-second handshake was probably the end, when Japanese Prime Minister Shinzō Abe made a facial expression that was all like, "WHAAAAAAAAT. Was that?" And we were all like, "Uh, yeah. What was that?"

Sorry, you think this is FAKE NEWS? It is not. Here is a slightly more bootleg version published on President Donald Trump's official Twitter account:

Is it possible that President Donald Trump doesn't know how to shake hands with a fellow human being? We can't say, but here is another handshake he recently had with his pick for the Supreme Court, Neil Gorsuch.

This was and is: the most important story of today.
