The ten most hilarious tweets from Trump’s dumpster fire meeting with Angela Merkel

German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s bizarre meeting with President dominated headlines yesterday.

Trump refused to shake the hand of Germany’s first woman chancellor on one occasion, and also made a joke about his baseless claims that Obama wiretapped Trump Tower, saying he and Merkel “have something in common.” (A reference to WikiLeaks revelations that US intelligence wiretapped Merkel’s phone, a scandal whose wounds are still fresh in the US-German relationship.)

Social media users have since gleefully highlighted multiple instances of Merkel displaying obvious discomfort and bafflement at Trump’s buffoonish behavior.
