At least she didn’t slap his hand away this time.

Social media went abuzz after President Trump greeted the first lady with a formal handshake at a military event Friday night.

The President came on the stage at Joint Base Andrews in Maryland following an introduction by First Lady Melania Trump.


But instead of a hug or a kiss, Trump extended his hand to his wife of 12 years as fatigue-clad troops look on. After they shook hands, the President was seen saying something to the first lady.


“That awkward handshake is the Trump equivalent of telling your wife she has to sleep on the couch because you didn't like the gravy,” tweeted @dritpreik.

Others speculated the two aren’t quite happy together.

“Ah yes, a handshake, so intimate, thank you very much husband sir, my misery is palpable, solid deal sir,” quipped @TrumpFlotus, an account parodying the first lady.



Some were just relieve Trump didn’t give one of his notorious handshakes.

President Trump and Emmanual Macron share another long handshake
“I guess we can be grateful he didn’t give Melania the old Trump Tug Power Handshake…this is how human spouses act!” wrote @catvalente.

The President has gained an international reputation for grasping someone’s hand, followed by active tugging of the arm — becoming viral sensations.

What a weird vibe between those two. It's like they're acquaintances.

Cue the "quit nitpicking" responses.

ETA: I saw this video somewhere else where you can hear him telling her to "go sit down now", when he's pushing her off.

How much you want to bet the child was conceived in the doctors office as part of an agreement? Sure looks that way...
