The President Of France Is Bad At Shaking Hands

Poor President Francois Hollande, he’s beloved by the citizens of France and yet can’t seem to get a handshake from anyone else he meets!

He’s always left hanging when he reaches out to take the hand of an esteemed leader or high profile figure, and his handshaking skills are so bad they’re going to name a form of solitary greeting after him, called the Hollande Handshake, which will consist of people waiting awkwardly for a few minutes before shaking their own hand.

It’s unclear whether it’s simply a matter of timing that makes Francois look the fool whenever he goes to shake someone’s hand, or if his hands are so clammy that nobody wants to touch them, but one thing’s for certain-his handshake failures make for hilarious photo ops!
