There is something eerie about this photo. I see the Pope stood far enough

away so as to avoid the stench.

Trump's fake smile. The Pope standing as far away as he can. Melania and Ivanka looking like the bride of frankenstein. I wonder if the pope was feeling any negative vibes off of them.

45. My gods, Melania's face looks awful. My heart goes out to that woman...

The Pope looks like he just gave an audience to the Barbarian Lord who notified him of the upcoming sack.

Melania's face looks absolutely awful, like she's been chosen for the sacrifice to insure fair winds.

The Crown Princess looks ... smug.

And the Barbarian Lord looks like he thinks he's already won.

This is a photo for an upcoming horror movie.

It is obvious that Pope Frankie really likes Obama. The difference between these and the one with the Trump entourage is quite telling, yes?

12. We need Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice

to rewrite Rainbow Tour



[Che:]
Now I don't like to spoil a wonderful story
But the news from Rome isn't quite as good
She hasn't gone down like they thought she would
Italy's unconvinced by Argentine glory
They equate Peron with Mussolini, can't think why

[Eva:]
Did you hear that? They called me a whore!
They actually called me a whore!

[Italian admiral:]
But Signora Peron it's an easy mistake
I'm still called an admiral
Yet I gave up the sea long ago

[Aide #2:]
More bad news from Rome; she met with the Pope
She only got a rosary, a kindly word
[Che:]
I wouldn't say the Holy Father gave her the bird
But papal decorations, never a hope
[Aide #1:]
She still looked the part at St. Peter's, caught the eye

21. Pic is creepy

Looks like a funeral.

I find it amusing that the trump women did not cover their heads while in Islamic countries but are more than than willing to becoming subjected by followers of the Christian version of the same God by covering their heads.
Also, as an atheist, I'm am always amused at the religious difference given by a Jewish person to a Christian person and vice verse...a Jewish person denies the deityhood of Jesus. It would seem that a Jewish person that Christianity is the old world equivalent of scientology. Just amusing.

31. The lack of human connection in those photos is stunning.

45 never actually looks at anyone as though they are together and sharing a moment of human warmth and empathy. And good grief, if this Pope doesn't look warm and human no one can.

And seriously, are you supposed to look like you're at a mafia funeral when you meet the pontiff? That's the soul-deadest bunch of people I've ever seen.

And the stench of sulfer emitting from chump is probably overwhelming. He does not look comfortable.

I seem to remember he was smiling when he had his picture taken with President Obama.

43. I agree with you, it's creepy. Trump's smile is satanic looking.

He only smiles like that when something evil is going on in his fiendish little pea brain.

The rest of them look like they are in one of those old Victorian Memento Mori photos.
