.@realDonaldTrump "gently touches Mike Pence's thigh" during Billy Graham's memorial service.
Ironically, the person who would hate this most is Billy Graham.https://t.co/8ecnVCgchV

Jokes aside, Trump looks like a little kid grabbing for Daddy’s leg because the sudden booming organ noise scared him. Or like he’s grabbing at Pence the way a potential vampire victim would grab a crucifix — hoping that physical contact with the “holiest” thing in his purview will protect him from the retribution of an angry god (reanimated zombie Graham?)…
Mike Pence looks like the stern daddy torn between benevolent authority and irritation that his pre-service ‘be a man, not a baby’ lecture didn’t take.
Melania looks like she can’t believe her goddamned lawyers forgot to insert a “void in case of the medically documented onset of senile dementia” escape clause into the pre-nup.

On the other hand, I’m thinking that if Mueller’s team needs to get any factual statements out of Trump, they can use the old cop-show routine with the “magic truth detector” (pre-loaded copier) — put his hand in a blinky-light-laden black box and tell him his brain will explode if he doesn’t tell the truth. He’ll be sharing the offshore bank account numbers and Putin’s favorite sex tips before the next commercial break!
