PM Trudeau takes Trump on with proper handshake!.., You go Trudeau!

President Donald Trump has a weird way of shaking hands. His herky-jerky grappling style sometimes makes it look like he’s fighting with the other person, and maybe even trying to rip their arm out of its socket. But Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau appeared prepared for an uncomfortable greeting when he visited the White House on Monday.

A video of Trump welcoming Trudeau shows the prime minister quickly grasping the president’s shoulder with his left arm, seemingly bracing for a potential pull. Trudeau then brings the handshake close and toward his center, cutting off Trump’s leverage and ensuring that his shoulder remains intact.

The whole affair still seemed forceful and perhaps even aggressive, at least by Canadian standards. But it lacked the awkwardness of a number of recent Trump handshakes.

Trump hosted Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe at the White House last week, and apparently thought this was the proper way to shake a guest’s hand:

What even is this?
And here’s Trump congratulating Neil Gorsuch, his Supreme Court nominee, after announcing his selection last month

This doesn’t look comfortable.
If you’re gonna shake hands with Trump, take a cue from Trudeau and come prepared to play defense.

Many already do, and the amount of hatred expressed by the far right in Canada is unreal. Not just for Trudeau, but for Notley in Alberta. Some of these idiots believe that those two politicians the sole reason that oil prices crashed, and that Canada's economy is doing so poorly. Why they can't remember further back than lat year, or the year before is beyond me. It's like some sort of selective political amnesia that only affects the right wingers and fanatics, seeing as they forget the Conservatives were in power in Alberta, and Federally when the shite hit the fan. Those two were far better than the alternatives at the time of the election(s).

Seems the partisan whining goes on in every country, well, save a few like Saudi Arabia and Russia. laugh

There's an ever growing divide in politics and among the people in Canada, much like the US, which is what I predicted would happen many years ago. We're sliding, or maybe have already, into US style politics. Mud slinging and lies seem to be acceptable, even though not every candidate participates. It seems to be more right wing here, for the moment, but that could change in a couple years when the next elections come up. The Con's in Alberta are even splitting the right in to factions, creating further divide and discontent. I'm hoping they implode, or that people finally see them for what they are, and what they're doing.

Middle ground is a very small place now . Probably because that's not the sort of people who donate to political party's . I do believe though it was the small middle ground who change their vote have given the world "he who can't sit still " and have encouraged the silent majority in other places , including here , to support a hanging pendulum .

You're right, I don't, at least not money. Although, I have campaigned for one party before, provincially, so it was an investment in time more than anything, and something I felt needed to be done. It was one of the few times in my life that I've seen the political process work as it should, mainly because he won. laugh

I prefer a swinging rope, but that's illegal here. cool


Ooh, that list would be long, and some would have to be brought back from the dead too, just to make sure justice was served. laugh
