‘Pope looks like he’s being held against his will’: The internet goes nuts over Trump’s weird Vatican photos
President Donald Trump and some of his family members met Pope Francis — and social media users couldn’t help but notice the Holy Father didn’t look too happy about it.
Trump appeared grinning in photos with the Pope, whose dour expression never changed, and both first lady Melania Trump and Ivanka Trump wore black veils.

@yashar The 30 seconds of Trump forcing a smile and the Pope looking down was one of the most uncomfortable things I've ever seen.

Trump: Why do you keep saying "the power of Christ compels you" and hitting me with water?
Pope: Testing a theory. pic.twitter.com/V0jnONuFsP

Pope to Trump: “When you’re a Pope, they let you do it. You can do anything. Grab them by the feet. You can just wash them.”

fun to think about how conservative catholic groups would have reacted to the pope reacting to Obama the same way he did to Trump

@FeministaJones Pope John Paul II looked happier meeting with the man who'd shot him than Pope Francis does meeting with Donald Trump.
