The media has had a frenzy about this handshake. A piece in The Atlantic called it “a play in four acts.”
“Shake hands like a normal person,” exhorted Esquire writer Jack Holmes. An Associated Press report called it a “white knuckle handshake” and then separately broke down every single presidential handshake. CNN published a “second-by-second analysis” and spoke to “body language experts” to discuss the handshake.
