President Trump met with German Chancellor Angela Merkel last Friday, and there was one particularly awkward moment when it appeared that Trump refused to shake Merkel’s hand. In the video, reporters ask the two to shake hands, and the German chancellor leans over and asks if Trump wants to comply with their request. Through all of this, Trump just stares forward, seemingly ignoring everyone. Since then, Trump’s people have said that he didn’t hear Chancellor Merkel but John Oliver isn’t buying it.
On Last Week Tonight, Oliver said, “It is not often you can genuinely say, ‘Trump should’ve touched that woman.'” Oliver went on to graphically describe Trump’s behavior, saying, “He’s treating the chancellor of Germany like a drunk guy masturbating in a subway car.”
As if refusing to shake the German chancellor’s hand wasn’t awkward enough, Trump joked about allegations that the United States monitored Merkel’s phone. Trump said, “At least we have something in common, perhaps.” The look on Merkel’s face suggests she’d rather not have anything in common with Trump.
Last Week Tonight airs Sundays at 11 p.m. on HBO.
