Trump's reaction while refusing to shake the hand of a military officer is taking over the internet
President Trump is on his way to Florida on Saturday. Doug Mills, a photographer for the New York Times, caught the president giving quite the reaction while stepping off Marine One.
What he witnessed was the Commander-in-Chief giving a very weird response while a military officer had his hand outstretched. It looks like Trump wasn't in the mood to reciprocate.
We're trying to find video of the incident but can't yet. We want to see more of this.

It's a well-known fact that the president is a germaphobe and always has been. That's why its strange he doesn't support the wearing of face masks but will still take precautions with handshaking.
Remember when Republicans were all stirred up over former President Obama's latte? It was a huge scandal all over conservative networks.
Trump did answer a few questions though before getting on Marine One and was asked specifically about last night's protests and if he thought he was provoking more racial violence by his "shooting" comment.
Trump: "No not at all... I have no idea if they’re going to be here. By the way, they love African Americans, they love black people. MAGA loves the black people."
