Things We Saw Today: French President Emmanuel Macron Admits That Trump Handshake Was Purposefully Aggressive

Donald Trump is known for his weird, ego-boosting, overly-aggressive handshakes but he may have met his match with French President Emmanuel Macron. The latter was presumably briefed about said hand assaults ahead of their meeting in Brussels on Thursday because he came prepared. Rather than let [insert insult here] get the upper hand, Macron forcefully squeezed and refused to let go. “My handshake with him, it wasn’t innocent,”

“My handshake with him, it wasn’t innocent,” Macron told the Journal du Dimanche. “That’s how you ensure you are respected. You have to show you won’t make small concessions–not even symbolic ones.” Well played. (via Jezebel)

That’s it on my end. What did you find, friends?
