I've never had an opportunity to say this about a person before: he looks like he's been beaten with an ugly stick in the photos presented.
It's not his face that makes him look out of shape. It's the religious garb. If it weren't for the robes and hats and gold plated everything, he
would be just some old Italian grandpa guy with some liver spots. His image would change if he had the opportunity to dye his hair, wear some
for-camera makeup. All the big world leaders do it. A brow lift, some under eye concealer. It's not a vanity any more than the robe, but
submitting to the image alteration would be considered an act of sacrifice, or humility, for the Catholic church.
Maybe he doesn't get the point of the smile and wave situation. It's the smiling that's the setback. And it looks like he's not looking people
in the eye, but at their foreheads. Whatever, I didn't vote him in.
