    RUDE PIG! Trump refuses handshake with Merkel during photo op??

    I had the TV on mute earlier and was watching the 'body language' of Trump during this meeting with Merkel. NOT good. This just popped on The Hill.

    What a rude prick! He was given the benefit of the doubt that it was loud and he might not have heard it. (I listened to it. I could hear the photographers asking and could see her asking). Again, look at the body language, she looks comfortable, turned towards and looking at him. It is not reciprocated.

    Perhaps she's just NOT HOT ENOUGH to shake hands with.


    Trump appears to ignore Merkel request for handshake

    BY BROOKE SEIPEL - 03/17/17 01:57 PM EDT



    President Donald Trump on Friday appeared to ignore a handshake with German Chancellor Angela Merkel while meeting in the Oval Office.

    As press gathered to take photos of the two world leaders in the Oval Office, Merkel could be heard leaning toward Trump and asking "Do you want to have a handshake?"

    President Trump did not shake Merkel's hand, in what observers say looked like a rejection of Merkel's request. Trump continued to look straight forward at the cameras.

    However, many have been quick to point out that the room was loud as cameras snapped photos and the President simply may not have heard Merkel. Trump also shook hands with Merkel when they first entered the White House...

    Is it "bitch about a symbolic injury day" around here?

    Yes, he can be gauche and probably was towards Merkel, whose politics he demonizes.

    Can we maybe talk about the budget, or the Russia treason, or the bribery, or any of 1,001 other serious issues Trump has ginned up so far in his tiny presidency?

    Christ, we're trying-by the minute, on this board. Doesn't mean we can't multi-task and call him out for being boorish to boot.

    Mrs Merkel has been a disaster for the German people and for Europe. I wouldn't want to press flesh with her either.

    President Donald Trump finally addressed his claim that his White House predecessor wiretapped him Friday, joking that he and German Chancellor Angela Merkel had "something in common, perhaps."

    The President was asked by a German reporter why his White House had cited a Fox News report that claimed that the British surveillance agency GCHQ had been used to wiretap Trump Tower during the election campaign.

    He did not apologize to the British government after it said that the report of UK surveillance was "ridiculous."

    Turning to Merkel, who was angry to find out after leaks by Edward Snowden that the US National Security Agency had tapped her phone, Trump said "at least we have something in common".

    Trump appeared to be irritated to be asked the question by the German reporter, in the latest twist of a two-week controversy ignited by early morning tweets by the President that claimed that President Barack Obama had ordered wiretaps against him last year.

    He's so embarrassing.
