Macron straight-up turned Trump's skin white with intense G7 handshake

Macron straight-up turned Trump's skin white with intense G7 handshakeThe 2018 G7 summit is a nice opportunity for world leaders to gather and chat about important issues facing the planet. But more importantly, it’s another chance for French President Emmanuel Macron to prove he can own Donald Trump in their relentless handshake battle. On Friday night, the two men met to discuss tariffs and such, but they made sure to exchange a number of competitive handshakes before they parted ways. Photos of the big moment show that Macron, who once again, DID NOT COME TO PLAY, squeezed Trump’s right hand so firmly that it turned white with defeat. SEE ALSO: Emanuel Macron just owned Donald Trump in their ongoing handshake war Here, we see the two men engaging in what could very well be a friendly hug of the hands.

I did it, guys!”Image: LUDOVIC MARIN/AFP/Getty Images Other handshake analyzers noticed the latest installment in the showdown, as well. And they seem to be impressed with Macron’s strength. Trump, famous for his forceful handshake, has become a victim of Emmanuel Macron. See how the French left his mark on poor Donald’s hand. Force is strong with this one. pic.twitter.com/eeEhl2BTj0 — Chungyan Chow (@ChungyanChow) June 9, 2018 Ein Handshake mit Macron.

He’d be very, very tough,” Trump is heard saying before pointing to Macron. The U.S. president then went on to explain, “He’s my friend. We’ve had a great relationship right from the beginning,” and Macron extended his hand to deliver another powerful grip. Let’s imagine how that shake went down, shall we?

Parents say intense gun violence in PG-13 movies appropriate for teens 15 and older

Parents are more willing to let their children see PG-13 movies with intense gun violence when the violence appears to be ‘justified’ than when it has no socially redeeming purpose, a study finds. But even when the violence in PG-13 movies appears justified, parents think it is more appropriate for teens at least 15 years old, two years older than the PG-13 rating suggests.
