President Donald Trump disrespectfully recoiled in terror as he refused to shake hands with a uniformed member of the military upon exiting Marine One over the weekend.
As protests against police brutality and racial injustice heat up across the country, one should not forget that the nation is still dealing with the coronavirus pandemic, which has killed more than 100,000 Americans.
Of course, that hasn’t bothered Trump at all. He even goes around refusing to wear masks while pretending everything is fine.
But for all his effort to put on a tough-guy act, a photographer was able to catch the moment when Trump looked totally terrified of shaking hands with a member of the military who tried to greet him at Marine One.

Are conservatives going to complain about Trump disrespecting a soldier? Because refusing to shake hands with a member of the armed forces as president is incredibly insulting, not to mention unpresidential.
Social media certainly took notice and mocked Trump into oblivion.

LOL. But but but President Obama’s latte! I’m sure Hannity will shit blood over this obvious disrespect for the troops.

I’m old enough to remember the months of @FoxNews coverage when @BarackObama saluted while boarding with a coffee up & how damaging & disrespectful they claimed that was to the institution of the presidency.

Ran from that like it was a paternity test.

Is he worried about the hoax?

Yet he never learned to wear a condom. Interesting.

Has a Commander-in-Chief ever been more terrified? https://t.co/w3Or4hOHWi

The way Trump reacted to this extended hand, you would think he’s trying to dodge the Vietcong like he desperately did during the Vietnam War by dodging the draft five times. This time, he was dodging one of our own men in uniform. It’s pathetic.
