The meaning of the fistbump has evolved

Pre-COVID-19: You my bro, man!

Post-COVID-19: Nice to meet you. I respect your health and well-being.

This interpretation is possible even when interacting with a Saudi crown prince. Give Biden the benefit of the doubt, NBC.

5. I have a doctor who fist bumps instead of shaking hands.

He started doing this when COVID reared its ugly head. This is a Polish man who received his medical degree in Poland originally, then qualified here. He tends to be Old World formal.

In those circumstances, I see the fist bump the same way you do.

7. Unreal that CNN is making it such a ridiculous event.

Big bunch of shit from the media bc of gas prices, then, criticize the guy who has the stones to go...stick up for Jamal,....and deal w the saudi murderers. That was absolutely the bitter end for me today. FUCK YOU CNN.
Pres Biden showed immense bravery, and looked absolutely fearless and in control. I like my Presidents in REAL control....not kissing ass.
They criticize a fist bump after /during an ongoing pandemic as the center piece of the visit.
Boycott CNN.

8. Yep. Other interpretations of Biden's fist bump range from the merely stupid to the rotten

No one with a right mind could think Biden was signaling approval.
