It was the handshake that shook the world.
On Monday, President Donald Trump met with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in an epic showdown of good versus evil. At least, that’s how the Internet saw it.
What was meant to be a meeting about trade and immigration became one of 2017’s best memes. And it all started with one of Donald Trump’s signature handshakes — or, at least, his attempt at one.
It didn’t help that, just a little bit later, the press caught this awkward moment between the two.
Within a few hours, the memes came pouring in. One of the world’s favorite (and hottest) prime ministers became, well, all of us.
There were a lot of hand jokes.
And a lot of tweets that made us cringe a little bit because, well, truth.
Then things got a little weird.
So, Trudeau probably wasn’t trying to make a statement by defying the President, but you can’t deny that the meeting had a different vibe than what we got from Trudeau and Obama, whose bromance made us all tear up a little.
What can we say? Maybe we’re all Justin Trudeau at heart.
