These two together in the same room make me shudder. By Geniusofdespair

George Washingon: "I hope I shall possess firmness and virtue enough to maintain what I consider the most enviable of all titles, the character of an honest man."

This is from the Conservative leaning New York Post, I specifically choose them so the Conservatives wouldn't say "Fake New":

President Trump did not extend his hand to shake German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s in a Friday Oval Office photo op, a courtesy he usually extends to foreign leaders visiting the white House.

Trump sat next to Merkel in front of a fireplace for the brief photo-op.

“Very good,” Trump said to assembled reporters when asked about what the two leaders discussed. “Lots of things.”

“Very good, thanks,” Merkel said in German.

But Trump hardly looked at Merkel and, when the photo op ended, didn’t move in for a handshake.

Look at this body language at the news conference photo-op. (P.S. turn the volume down during the annoying ad):  Link to video

On another note -- musical note -- far more entertaining:

Here is the Women's Anthem (Milck was the special guest at the ACLU Meeting) I bought the song from ITunes. I hope all women do....and men.

He didn't extend his hand because a man should never extend his hand to a woman. It is the woman who extends her hand to a man.

She asked him and he ignored her. Look at the video she leans over and asks him.

The song is just beautiful. I just downloaded it.

I am so embarrassed. How long will it take to get him out of office? Pence at least understands basic protocols and how to handle visiting leaders particularly our friends.

For years we heard about the "good American values" from Republican Party supporters. Then, Trump shows up in the picture. An adulterer, draft dodger, tax evader, womanizing, foul mouth, conceited, Ray Cohn disciple, Mob associate, fraudster, etc., etc. This man's picture is listed in Webster's dictionary under "dishonesty". He is everything my father taught me not to be. And all of a sudden, those high and mighty Republicans can't see no wrong with this lying sack of coal. Goes to figure. The end justifies the means for those Republicans.

It is customary when an official meets the President of the United States - they shake hands - Trumphet would not even do that to show respect - sharing on FB
