The First Lady of Poland Smoothly Avoided Shaking Donald Trump's Hand

The BBC described the incident as Trump being "inadvertently snubbed" but is this the case?

Mrs. Trump began her official duties on Thursday at the Belvedere palace, a white building fronted with four columns in the neo-Classical style, where the Poland's first lady, Agata Kornhauser-Duda, 45, welcomed her for tea.

President Trump appeared to speak approvingly of Poland's approach to dealing with the Muslim migrant crisis, a vital public relations coup for the Polish government and a serious headache for the European Union.

But this interaction is only the latest fumble in Trump's social interactions.

July 4th gas hasn't been this cheap in years
The drop in demand is unlikely to hold for the next reporting period given the Independence Day holiday weekend. Nationwide, the last time gas prices were this cheap for the Independence Day holiday was 2005.

After the non-shake, Mr Trump appeared to swing too far in the opposite direction following a meeting with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. The president has a reputation for this kind of handshake, which CNN deemed the "grab and yank" in a compilation video featuring political leaders from Vice President Mike Pence to New Jersey Governor Chris Christie. Trump himself missed an initial opportunity from Germany's Chancellor Angela Merkel whose request for a handshake was met with silence at first.

Mr Trump and Ms Merkel finally got to shake hands overnight. "That is my wish for all of us around the world".

This prompted the crowd to start chanting, "Donald Trump!". Trump asked Polish President Andrzej Duda. The First Lady of Poland had clearly done her research-and perhaps didn't want to become another victim of the now infamous Trump handshake.
