But an endless loop on social media shows the wife of President Andrzej Duda intentionally “snubbing” Trump at first to shake Melania’s hand.

Duda himself took to Twitter to push back against “fake news.”

“Contrary to some surprising reports my wife did shake hands with Mrs. and Mr. Trump @POTUS after a great visit,” he wrote Thursday evening. “Let’s FIGHT FAKE NEWS.”

Time noted: “This handshake is one of several Trump has exchanged since he was inaugurated that has gone viral or been scrutinized. In addition to the incident with Merkel, French President Emmanuel Macron’s knuckles famously turned white after he shook Trump’s hand at the G-7 meeting, which he later characterized as a ‘moment of truth. The President’s handshakes with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Japanese Prime Shinzo Abe were also the subject of thorough handshake analyses on the internet.”
