Then, in a diplomatic power move for the ages, Trump said he was SUCH a good friend that he was willing to brush what he said was dandruff from Macron's shoulder.

Because I am a SERIOUS reporter, I managed to track down one photo taken prior to the shoulder brush which does appear to show something small and white on Macron's collar.

Anyway, people were très shook by the whole moment.

Some thought it was a power move.

But others wondered how Macron might get his revenge.

Macron also made another amazing face after Trump angrily shut down a reporter who asked if he would pardon his attorney, Michael Cohen.
