Angela Merkel Couldn’t Help but Roll Her Eyes at Mansplainer Vladimir PutinThe Ladies Finger

It began when the First Lady of Poland, during Donald Trump’s visit to Warsaw, sailed past him and ignored the hand he proffered for a handshake, leaving him looking grumpy-faced while she greeted his wife Melania instead. Of course, it felt like a neat and satisfying echo of the time Trump refused to shake German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s hand during her visit to Washington DC earlier this year.Funnier still was Angela Merkel’s response yesterday to Vladimir Putin (whom the Indian Express has decided to call Vlandimir) as he appeared to mansplain ballistic missiles to her. While discussing the issue, Merkel seems to indicate a missile pattern with her hand, and Putin shakes his head and waggles his finger at her in response, to which Merkel couldn’t help but roll her eyes in irritation in an exchange that’s been immortalised now in memes, GIFs and tweets on social media.
