Donald Trump and, inexplicably, his daughter, Ivanka, met with German Chancellor Angela Merkel this week, and well, a lot of awkwardness went down.
Twitter reacted to the meeting of the minds between Merkel, a research scientist with a doctorate in physical chemistry, and Donald Trump, a reality TV star, and, predictably, it got very, very real.
