These 11 Tweets Perfectly Sum Up What Happened When The Pope Met Trump

On Wednesday, President Trump and co. met up with Pope Francis in an early morning affair at the Vatican. Speculation leading up to the event was rampant: Would the Pope be nice to Trump? Would the president get into another awkward encounter? In the past, President Trump has not shied away from taking Twitter shots at the Pope. The Pope, on the other hand, has said he would reserve judgment on Trump until actually meeting him. While the meeting between the two was largely uneventful, a single photo appeared online and immediately became the meme of the day. Let’s take a closer look.

Here’s the photo of Pope Francis and President Trump that has everyone talking.


Notice anything about the Pope’s face?

Pope Francis has seen some heavy stuff in his day — famine, war, natural disasters, etc — but this is the face he made when meeting President Trump. Pope Francis looked like I look when I have to sit through Sunday mass.

When the photo was posted online, Pope Francis’ less-than-enthused face went viral.

Everyone was trying to figure out what was going on in Pope Francis’ head when the photo was taken.


Full Frontal tweeted: “Can you please not post this on any social media? I don’t want my boss seeing.” Pope Francis

Some brought up the warm reception Pope Francis has given to previous world leaders.

Four pics are worth a billion words. #pope #trump #trumppope #vatican #barackobama

Pope Francis was able to smile with Barack Obama, German Chancellor Angela Merkel, and even Mexico’s President, Enrique Peña Nieto.

Pope Francis is known for his warm, affable smile.


Usually.

VICE marveled at how sad “the happiest Pope” had become in Trump’s presence.


It’s as if the Pope didn’t hear the word, “cheese.”

The Pope’s reaction reminded people of Michelle Obama at Trump’s inauguration.

The Pope and Michelle should hang out.

A few cracked jokes about Pope Francis performing an exorcism on President Trump.


In a reference to The Exorcist, @Crutnacker tweeted:

Why do you keep saying “the power of Christ compels you” and hitting me with water?

Pope: Testing a theory.

@BarryMalone76 joked about converting to Catholicism.


Some Catholics thoroughly loved Pope Francis’ reaction.


@ritabites tweeted:

the pope looking so pissed to be next to trump is making being catholic almost worth it.

There was speculation on possible conversations in the room.


@RedTRaccoon tweeted:

Pope Francis, “Who died?”

Ivanka, “Freedom, peace, and hope.”

The awkward encounter was the perfect “Curb Your Enthusiasm” moment.


Of course, one person was super excited about the meeting.


@realDonaldTrump tweeted:

Honor of a lifetime to meet His Holiness Pope Francis. I leave the Vatican more determined to pursue PEACE in our world.

Salma Hayek, Diego Luna, Gael García And Other Mexican Stars Showed The Cannes Film Festival How To Party

The Cannes Film Festival in France is celebrating its 70th anniversary. To commemorate the occasion, festival organizers invited some of film’s most influential names, including American actors such as Leonardo DiCaprio, Jessica Chastain and Will Smith. One group of guests — let’s call them the Mexican delegation — enchanted photographers and showed they were there to PARTY.

Just look at this collection of Mexcellence:

From left to right: Director Alfonso Cuarón and girlfriend Sheherazade Goldsmith, Guillermo Del Toro, Emmanuel Lubezki, Alejandro González Iñárritu, Diego Luna, Gael García Bernal, Salma Hayek and husband François-Henri Pinault.

The epic line-up of award-winning Mexicanos inspired the hashtag #Mexicannes.

Buzzfeed Mexico broke down just how many awards there are between everyone in the photo:

But wait, they didn’t just hang out at the red carpet. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Salma Hayek surprised partygoers with a mariachi. Here’s a clip of everyone singing “Cielito Lindo.”

Director Guillermo Del Toro was the star of the show, leading everyone in a sing-along. Around the one minute mark, French actress Isabelle Huppert appears to shoot someone a look that says “I don’t know the words to this, but it’s awesome so I’m gonna keep going.”

They also sang “Mexico Lindo y Querido”…

… And, of course, it wouldn’t be a serenata without an alcohol-fueled rendition of “El Rey.”

Rebecca Ford of The Hollywood Reporter caught a glimpse of Gael García Bernal doing a little shimmy during the performance. ?

All in all, it looks like everyone had a great time. Just look at the grins on BFFs Diego Luna and García Bernal.
