Do you want people to not trust the media?  Because this is how you get people to not trust the media.

Yesterday, on basically every friggin’ news outlet across the world, the press was angry that Trump didn’t act like a trained seal and shake Angela Merkel’s hand when they told him to.

In case you missed it, here are some highlights:

I mean Trump not shaking Merkel’s hand is super rude, right?  He is the penultimate of delta bravos for totally giving her the cold shoulder.

Except maybe he didn’t ignore her and did shake her hand.

Does the Press not like facts?  Or just ones that don’t line up with their “Trump always has to look like an ass” agenda.

Is that a handshake?

FROM TWO ANGLES?  WHAT IS THIS SORCERY?

But I thought it was awkward and they didn’t like each other?!

But we were told by the media that this DIDN’T HAPPEN!!  Look at that smile!  And that eye contact!  It’s almost like it wasn’t totally awkward and maybe the meeting went halfway well! He definitely stormed off walking ahead of her because she’s a woman right?

Dang it.

If liberals were looking for another scandal, keep looking.  This isn’t it.
