The Pope Met With Justin Trudeau And Took Another Glum Photo

Resting Pope Face.

Posted on

The pope is at it again, folks! Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his wife Sophie Grégoire Trudeau were at the Vatican on Monday to meet with Pope Francis, and he did not look very happy in the group photo.

It's starting to become a pattern.

Maybe Pope Francis just doesn't like politicians.

Or maybe he just doesn't like posing in front of that specific painting?


At least he's staying on brand.

The cool pope never smiles, it's not his #brand

It could also just be his Resting Pope Face.

It turns out that it's called "resting Pope's face." RPF.

Many people could relate.

The Pope is basically every kid that has to take a gizillion pictures with relatives on their first holy communion

And others suggested we all made too big a deal of the scowling photo he took with Trump. "Almost like it has nothing to do with politics," this person tweeted.

The Pope doesn't seem happy to meet anyone lately. Almost like it has nothing to do with politics.


"Get you a Pope who can do both."
