Why Is Only One of These People Smiling?

Look at this image closely. Except for Donald Trump, who is wearing an idiotic grin, everyone else in this photo is looking grim. As usual, Trump appears to be clueless. Now, I don't know what happened the second before this photo was taken, but everyone but Trump is looking serious, at a minimum, or is feeling some other emotion.

And Donald Trump grins stupidly. That says it all.

4. It's interesting, isn't it?

Melania often displays open contempt for Donald Trump in her facial expressions. It seems clear to me that she harbors an intense dislike for that man. Ivanka is harder to read. Her expression in that photo is completely neutral. Blank.

The Pope, on the other hand, usually smiles during such photo ops. He is certainly not smiling in this one.

5. Melania looks as though she was just sentenced to life

in prison to me. Ivanka looks like she simply shut off her switch and is no longer present. The Pope looks worried, but Trump just stands there with a stupid grin on his face.

Very weird group photo, in my opinion.

7. It's a traditional veil that stands away

from the head and face. Both she and Melania look like Spanish prisoners from the 18th century to me.

Notice in your photo, though, that everyone is smiling, not just the President.

16. Yes, it is. There is something about that photo that is very disturbing.

I can't really put my finger on it, but it really unsettles me. Something about the satanic looking grin on Trump's face and the look of dread on the faces of the others.

18. Well, it's just a moment in time, that photo.

However, I watched video of that meeting. The Pope was notable in it for not smiling. I suspect he is silently praying for Trump to no longer be President. Melania is pissed off even to be on this trip with him. Ivanka is hard to read. She's pretty good at neutral expressions like the one in this photo. She knows that Trump is in over his head and shouldn't be in that office, I'm sure. But...I'm not sure she can do a damned thing about her father's idiocy.

I'm not a fan of anyone in that photograph. I just find it an interesting snapshot of several unhappy people and a grinning clown.

19. His eyes are empty. I think the smile is the smile of an idiot.

Trump is disconnected from reality, and reacts according to whatever script is running in his head. He doesn't know what the others' expressions show, but he thinks he's supposed to be smiling for the camera, so he does that.

It is a mindless sort of grin that exposed nothing at all, because there is nothing really going on in that man's brain, really. He is reacting to situations by rote.

21. He knows how to paste on the BIG SMILE. The see??? I am a nice guy smile.

But there are just as many pictures of him scowling like they just told him he is being impeached. He has been in the limelight long enough to know that he is being photographed constantly so, for this trip, I've noticed a lot of the Big Smile. Let's see how much smiling he does when he has to come face to face with NATO members after the nasty remarks he has said in the past about them. Or characterizing Brussels as a "hell hole". His reception there should be ....shall we say? Interesting?? LOL.

She drapes that thing over her head to visit the Pope. Such class.

27. The Pope looks like he can't wait for this photo op to end.

Melania looks like her soul has left her body and Ivanka is just totally blank. 45 just looks evil and scary.

They better do some serious cleansing of the Vatican when he leaves.
