Trump shakes-and-yanks French First Lady’s hand

Donald Trump arrived in Paris this morning, and true to form, shaked and yanked French First Lady Brigitte Macron.

Trump has been criticized before for his odd penchant of yanking the arm of whomever he is shaking hands with, in an apparent show of dominance.

French President Emanuel Macron famously yanked back when he first met Trump a few weeks ago. Which really ticked off Trump, according to press reports.

And now Trump meets the French First Lady and yanks her arm like one of the boys he’s trying to dominate. You can see how entire body move to the right as he yanks her. He simply can’t help himself.

    When Trump shook Putin’s hand, it was very polite and respectful — no pulling. He knows who the alpha is.

    No woman is safe around this creep.

    Too bad she isn’t a martial arts expert in order to flip him on his fat ass.

  10. That’s a good point.

  11. Ketchup with his overcooked steak!

    More evidence of his mental disturbance.

    “Ketsup?” Snort/sniff to expel some noxious air. “Non.” #Stephhead.

  14. Badgerite says:

    He can’t ‘dominate’ Macron. So he is dominating his wife. What an ffffffffffffffing turd.

  15. Demosthenes says:

    In related news, French chefs are frantically Trump to locate ketchup to serve Trump when he orders steak pomme frites.

  16. Badgerite says:

    I did notice. So should everyone else. I also noticed Putin’s smug condescension to trump.
    And everyone else.

  17. Betty Aberlin says:

    he’s a predator. his defense will be that she smelled so delicious he couldn’t resist. he’s a bully who does not relinquish her hand even when she tried to step back.

  18. cmrosko says:

    Notice, he didn’t do anything like that with Putin. He’s such a huge pathetic ass hole…The sooner him and his crew are gone the better…

  19. Rockman Rock says:

    The guy is a bonafide imbecile.

  20. I sometimes wonder if he just can’t help himself.

  21. minidriver says:

    What the actual fuck? Drumpf gets shown up by President Macron so the cheeto has to do the arm yank crap against his wife? Just to prove in his tiny little mind that he’s a ManlyManMan?
