Listen, I’m no dentist, but I can’t be the only one who was struck by how comically telling the body language exhibited by Trump and Putin at their meeting was. I understand why people are leery of so-called body language “experts,” but I feel like if body language is so noticeably weird and telling that even a layman like me notices it, there might actually be some there there.
There’s a tension between people who think that Donald Trump is simply a deranged narcissist who doesn’t like to have his legitimacy as president questioned and people who think he is out and out compromised, but there’s no need for this tension; it’s obvious both things are true. I’ve never seen a man look more profoundly miserable, uncomfortable and cowed in my entire life.
I finally got around to watching some clips of the summit and his body language is striking. I can’t be the only one who noticed this. WHAT does Putin have on him?
