Interesting results to this polling question
The picture with Obama looks like that time in school when the nerdy kid wears the same shirt as you and it’s awkward the whole day.
Take that shit off, Obama.
Can't Trump at least smile?
I do like a good smile, show those pearly whites but on the other hand I do not like a phony smile. Many of our politicians have smiled so much that the muscles in their face caused what seems to be facial conformities.
Another awkward handshake
Also, you just chose to pictures, I mean Obama easily could have shaken hands another time?
You can't judge if it was awkward by the picture shown.
😂 yes, you can. Trump is clearly trying to show us how much stronger he is. It's awkward
"Causing or feeling embarrassment or inconvenience."
No, you can't tell if either one of them were feeling embarrassed by the picture. All it shows is Trump on top of the handshake. That doesn't make it "awkward".
Bower, I believe he is trying to show us to be a strong country. Democrats would criticize President Trump if he crapped gold and lowered the National debt by doing so.
Diplomacy doesn't work like that
And I'm not a Democrat, and I've agreed with the president before
You don’t want the United States to be known as a strong country?
We shouldn't be throwing our weight around is all I'm saying
I really really really doubt a handshake can be considered throwing a persons weight around 😂
On a worded question on SOH we’re allotted 250 characters but a picture now that paints a thousand words. 🤔
Most people won't notice, but Trumps handshake is dominating the Chinese president.
I’m guessing you mean by over the top. I’ve noticed executives and businessmen of higher stature when shaking a persons hand will do this (as in striking a deal). I believe it to be the businessman inside Trump nothing more.
Yes. In Business the over the top handshake is done to signify who's in control
I don’t think that applies across cultures. Handshakes aren’t a thing in China, so our interpretation of what a handshake means is pretty meaningless.
I do think it’s interesting that Obama is copying their clothes in his pic, while trump is dressed in a suit and tie.
BertGoldberg, i’ll buy that and agree.
Mr Milkdud, it is very interesting. Form President Obama tried to conform to any culture of any foreign government he visited. When visiting China I felt it was his way of showing subordinates as a visiting diplomat.
I guess it depends who had smaller hands. There was a point for Trump when he refused to shake hands as he's a tremendous germaphobe.
