Justin Trudeau’s shady look at Trump’s hand has become THE moment of his White House visit

“I dare you to smell it”

CANADIAN PRIME MINISTER Justin Trudeau was in the Oval Office last night to meet President Trump.

Donald’s handshakes have been the talk of the town lately, following his 19-second-long Curb Your Enthusiam-esque greeting with the Japanese PM last week.

Just before he went to shake Trudeau’s for the cameras yesterday, the photographers caught a moment of apparent hesitation.

And Trudeau’s facial expression was perfect

From every angle, it’s become a huge meme overnight

The jokes have been coming thick and fast

With references to #GoldenShowersGate an inevitability

As Time notes, Trudeau did end up shaking his hand and the video shows he wasn’t hesitant at all

There was not going to be a repeat of last week’s ~incident~

But at least he came bearing Canadian gifts

Poutine as the new diplomatic tool in these strange, uncertain times.
