US President Donald Trump and Pope Francis had a rendezvous at the Vatican's Apostolic Palace earlier today, and you could say that the whole event was just asking for it—"it" being Internet ridicule.
The two leaders reportedly exchanged thoughts and gifts in relation to global issues, such as peace (olive tree emblem) and climate change (the Pope's essay on the matter), which Trump had dismissed as a hoax.
Despite the POTUS telling NPR that he had a "fantastic meeting" with the religious head, netizens aren't buying into the words of the controversial chief of state, especially after this candid photo of the First Family with Pope Francis quickly went viral:
And you know what comes next after a priceless moment gets immortalized as a meme online. Of course, the world's Photoshop army was ready and raring to get in on the action.
Some clarify that the shot was entirely incidental, although the Pope's expression isn't too surprising given their tumultuous history. He once described Trump as "not Christian" for planning to build a wall between the US and Mexico.
Although the video proof is harder to dispute:
Former Chief Official White House Photographer for President Barack Obama, Pete Souza, even found an opening to make a subtle dig.
Is the US president's personality and mere presence really that radical and rotten to have this kind of effect on Pope Francis?
We're not sure if this is a parody account or Trump himself giving these amusing live updates, which you've certainly just finished reading in his unique (and annoying) voice.
For added hilarity, others believe that the larger-than-life Catholic Church leader threw shade at the man, with the help of First Lady Melania Trump.
The POTUS just can't seem to catch a break.
