negotiation and interreligious dialogue”. The discussion took place behind closed doors in the Pope’s private study and lasted thirty minutes. When the two leaders emerged, their faces bore two distinctly separate expressions.
Hey, the Pope might be a holy figure, but he’s human after all. It’s painfully obvious that trading phony smiles isn’t his forte, especially with the likes of President Sunkist. If you remember, back in February of 2016, the Holy Father took candidate Trump to task saying, “a person who only thinks about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian.” Though the Pope never mentioned Trump by name, his meaning was not lost on the tangerine billionaire who called Francis’ comment “disgraceful.”
As for Trump, he said he had a great time, gushing to Italian Prime Minister Paolo Gentiloni, “We had a fantastic meeting. We’re liking Italy very, very much and it was an honor to be with the Pope.”
This is the third leg of Trump’s ‘Religiosity Tour 2017’, an activity packed affair during which the prez has engaged in everything from fondling balls…
… to speaking with walls.
The mind boggles at what other bizarre photo opportunities are in store for the remainder of the trip.
Upon the conclusion of their private conversation, Trump told Francis, “Thank you. I won’t forget what you said.”
One can only hope the Pope suggested he tender his resignation.
