The President and First Lady just cannot get this hands thing right.

On Friday, Melania Trump introduced her husband at Andrews Air Force Base, kicking off “perhaps the most uncomfortable display of affection between any husband and wife this year,” in Jimmy Kimmel’s words.

When the POTUS arrived at the podium, the Trumps awkwardly shook hands, for some reason. “He shut her down like a robot from ‘Westworld,'” Kimmel quipped on Monday’s show.

The embarrassing palm-embrace only got rougher when Donald told Melania, “You go sit down.” Oooph.

“You should have walked off that stage and kept walking to Slovenia,” the “Jimmy Kimmel Live” host joked.

In honor of the historical moment, Kimmel unveiled then the first-ever “Handshake Cam,” which he used on his studio audience to great effect. Watch the video above, which includes a short tribute to the Trumps’ odd love.
