First lady Melania Trump shared an awkward moment with her husband, President Donald Trump, on Friday during an appearance at a military base near Washington, D.C.
The president and first lady were at Joint Base Andrews where the president gave a speech to a group of service members. He was introduced by his wife, and, in an awkward moment, shook Melania’s hand then ushered her off stage.
The encounter wasn’t lost on the internet.
Social media users also had something to say about the unusual exchange:
When Melania introduced Trump yesterday, he thanked her with...a handshake? pic.twitter.com/H57RgWMoVS— Robert Maguire (@RobertMaguire_) September 16, 2017
This isn’t the first time that the Trumps' interactions have been in the spotlight. Earlier this year, the first lady seemed to pull away from her husband during their trip to the Middle East, which also caused a stir on the internet.
