At a meeting with Silicon Valley executives on Wednesday that included Apple CEO Tim Cook, Tesla CEO Elon Musk and billionaire PayPal founder Peter Thiel, President-elect Donald Trump exchanged an incredibly awkward handshake with Thiel.
Twitter users immediately went to town on the wince-inducing exchange between the two men.
