Donald Trump × Shinzo Abe “Most Awkward Handshake”

DonaldTrump-ShinzoAbe-Handshake-1

DonaldTrump-ShinzoAbe-Handshake-2

Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe’s second audience with the God Emperor has attracted much notoriety online, with the two honchos awkwardly shaking hands whilst staring directly at each other – the language barrier, Trump’s inventive handshaking technique and the necessity of an unnaturally drawn out spectacle for the cameras likely all playing a role.

Visiting the United States for a series of meetings with Donald Trump (whose tearing up of the TTP seems to be water under the bridge already, assuming Abe ever genuinely supported the pact), Abe took part in a brief photo session with Trump to please the media, resulting in a cringe-worthy handshake lasting some 19 seconds in duration:

Naturally, Trump haters have been crawling over themselves to label this another crass spot of post-Trumpening boorishness, perhaps having grown all too used to 8 years of supine grovelling before the world’s potentates by his well trammeled predecessor…

    Everyone's hopping on the hate bandwagon because CTR made it popular, and it's easy to do. And if you don't, they fuck you. People WANT someone like Trump to accuse of being a Hitler Nazi. It gives them an excuse to be a fucking asshole and riot.

    The president could have been anyone who didn't bend over to the rampant corruption, it could have been Jesus fucking Christ or God himself. Everyone would still smear the shit out of them. This is exactly why Trump once said he didn't want to get into politics.

    Humans don't remember good deeds anywhere near as often as the bad. You could save the world and make everyone happy, but the moment you disagree with someone about something, they will fuck you up, shit on your face and piss in your mouth.

    If I was in Trump's position, I would long ago have said "fuck it, I'm done" and let the world go to shit. It's what people seem to very desperately want.

    It has been fake news, he's a douche, but the liberal media controls everything, and has been steering the public using misleading headlines and overusing the word "allegedly" to make sure they win next time, they're brainwashing the youth, for example, the teens choice awards was basically an anti gun rally. Most of the protests are paid for and incited by them.

    Son if you even tried to cross-reference the major media outlets with RealClearPolitics facts, you would see he is correct.

    So his evidence and your homework would be political fact databases such as Politico and RealClearPolitics. WHICH ARE UNDISPUTED FACTS UNDER OATH.

    Abe tries to distance himself from the US and get protection/help from Russia.

    *North Korea gets closer and closer to nuking the "Japanese dogs"*

    Abe:"Uh, Putin, aren't you going to help us...?!"

    Putin:"Hahaha, are you stupid, we only help when it benefits us.."

    Abe:"USA!!! HELP US!!!! WE LOVE YOU!!! MR TRUMP GREAT LEADER!!! WE ARREST ANYBODY THAT PROTEST US MILITARY BASES!! HELPPPPPP!!!"

    Last I heard, Japan was trying to get along with both Russia and the US, and the US is also trying to get along with Russia now.

    The alternative is fucking killing each other in cold blood. Which everybody seems to want, for some reason.

    The treaty forbidding japan from forming an army expired like 2 years ago and the very instant it did, they made another army.

    Do you think even with the banning treaty will make any difference?

    Japan ....... 126 366 871..masculine..61 545 397 (48%)

    In a conventional war? Really?
    And I am dumbass?

    Do people not know the JSDF is essentially a military under the guise of "self defense"? This isn't rocket science.

    According to your best friends at the mainstream media who are owned by the world's richest asshole who don't give a shit about us. Very trustworthy! They would never ever lie to us. Ever. Just like what happened with Nazi Germany.

    Propaganda doesn't exist, man. This is the 21st century, man! People don't lie anymore!

    I find it funny that people say Trump is embarrassing America. The real embarassment is how obsessed people and the media are with every tiny little thing Trump does, effectively exposing a culture of bullying.

    The reason the handshake was so long is because they were posing for some cameras, the reason it was so awkward was because trump wouldn't sit up properly to face abe until in the end...

    And why did he keep petting his hand?

    Comment by Anonymous

    It was more awkward because of Trump's constant need to jerk Abe's hand towards him, as if to say:
    "Look at me, why aren't you looking at me?! I'M THE FUCKING PRESIDENT OF THE USA BITCH!"

    No, that's exactly what Trump thinks. There are video compilations of his hand-shakes and they're all so aggressive and awkward in an attempt of cheap dominance. The other party usually has moment on their face that says, "What the fuck are you doing?"

    Everyone nowadays thinks they fucking know more about politics, government and shadow government more than everybody else. They all act like they're infallible omnipotent experts of all professions.

    I prefer to be around people who, you know, accept that they aren't GOD INCARNATE, that they don't know everything, and may be wrong.
