It wouldn't have been a real handshake to begin with. If someone has contempt for you and is your political rival, leader of the opposing party, and
the only one
to try to shake your hand after
you've taken the stage, why would you shake their hand? Considering the bad blood, the
recent impeachment vote and trial, I mean really. Do y'all ever consider the simple things, the psychological things, the dramatic theatrical plays
for the media's cameras? Stop to think about why she'd extend her hand at that moment anyway? It was an insult, like "Good job! You dodged a bullet in
the Senate impeachment trial that I gave the articles for after my party voted for it."
How would the President have looked if in that moment, right before his State of the Union speech, in front of the chamber and the world, smiled and
shook hands with her? What message would that convey? I could write a post as long as the OP's talking about a "Chemical Biologist" who thinks Pelosi
had a nerve agent on her barehand that would only kill Trump, except no one would read it like I had to skip over his fictional piece.
Not saying he's lying, but the idea of the post is out of a thriller film. Public execution by the head of the Democratic Party on live TV during the
SOTU address? No one would wonder where he got infected from? The best doctors in the world would be treating him, working around the clock to
determine the cause of his symptoms. I'd like to think they'd know a little more about nerve agents than OP's buddy.
The President did the right thing by snubbing her fake opportune handshake; he knew better and I applaud him for taking the mature route, not giving
into the petty drama BS that he has been a willing participant and instigator of in the past. Maybe he's learning, but more importantly this is
election year and he's projecting the right image, not falling into traps like these to go viral on TV and social media. The bullet he dodged wasn't
an uber secret nerve agent CIA death weapon
I'm not a Republican voter, or Democrat always either. Hell, half the time my vote is to not vote at all if the candidates for any position don't
appeal to me. I don't vote along a party line to get more of my team into positions of power, regardless of who they are. I'd like to think that I
vote the way that everyone should but that's very quixotic. With that said, I might not even like Trump as President or how he operates it, what his
agendas are, but I'm telling you right now that he's going to be re-elected for 4 more years. The opposition is garbage, there's nothing good there,
no one strong.
