3. Well, of course the pope doesn't look happy. He has mini Darth Vader riding his back!

Yeah, yeah, I know it's a statue of a saint behind him. But when seen while scrolling down, just enough details are obscured that it looks like....

15. Good observation.

Trump is partially in front of/blocking the pope.

He couldn't be more reprehensible. The pope is a saint, in my opinion, just for agreeing to go through this torturous meeting.

5. Saw the video of this moment

As well as the pre-picture taking minutes. Pope didn't smile once. At all. Trump went into the pose/smile right away...Pope hardly even looked up to the cameras in front of them. Find the video if you can...body dynamics are telling.

8. Caption for Pic 2

Pope: Only five minutes and eight seconds have passed. God, it feels like ten years with this buffoon. I can't talk to him. I feel my IQ drop with every inane word he utters. Please clock faster, faster. God, please get him out of here.
Trump: He's pretty quiet. I'm certain it's because he's in awe of my massive electoral victory.

10. There is pain written on the Pope's face.

He is just another imperfect human being, but he honestly loves the poor.

the republican Draft-&-Church Dodger-in-Chief, Comrade Casino, has a very phony smile plastered to his man-tanned face.

24. Feel sorry for the Pope.

He doesn't look 1 bit happy or even comfortable in this picture. Hope he gave 45 a piece of his mind, not that it would do any good, but for the sake of the poor and minorities. who need a voice.

25. Every picture of the Pope that I have seen, the Pope has a smile on his face.

The picture of Twerp and the Pope, is sad! I am a Catholic and it is disturbing to see His Holiness endure the idiocy of Trump.
