It cries out for captions. After all Trump's desperately foul rhetoric about his predecessors, what are his feelings as he not only has to sit next to the Obamas but also shake their hands? What of Michelle Obama's stinging description of Trump in her recent memoir as "bigoted and dangerous"? Or as he deliberately omits that gesture not just for the Clintons but also the ailing Jimmy Carter and his wife? Hillary looks as though she'd rather be anywhere than in that seat. Lynne Cheney looks as though she should be in the coffin.
Since George W Bush had just given Michelle Obama a piece of candy, perhaps she had popped it in her mouth before palming it in her hand and saying to Trump -
"Yes, dumbass. You'll now spend the next couple of hours desperately trying to get that gunge off your greasy little hand without the TV cameras watching you!"
