While we were all laughing at Trump’s awkward handshake, you missed this guy in the corner
While we all were busy looking at Trump’s awkward handshake, this guy was in the corner was having the last laugh.
Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev was one of many world leaders who on Monday attended an international summit in the Philippines.
The opening ceremony of the Association for Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) summit saw a group of leaders come together for the summit’s traditional crossover handshake, which sees each leader extending their right arm over their left, and shaking the opposite hands of those next to them.
But while everyone was busy laughing at Trump’s awkward handshake and grimace, you might’ve missed out on Medvedev in the corner.
He just plain didn’t do it.
Could he not figure the handshake out? Were the instructions lost on him? Did he simply not give a sh*t? We may never know.
Either way, he looks pretty thrilled for someone who’s throwing an entire group photo out of sync.
I mean, just look at him.
The 52-year-old Russian PM had on Sunday flown in to the Philippines, where he is expected to sign deals with the Philippine government relating to transport, energy, and education.
Let’s give Trump credit where credit is due: at least he tried. We certainly can’t say the same for Medvedev.
