Twitter again erupts over Trump's 'awkward' handshake, this time with Neil Gorsuch

President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch was sworn in on Monday, ending what many deemed a grueling confirmation process in order to fill late Justice Antonin Scalia's vacant seat.

But it was the president's handshake with the new justice that sent Twitter users wild with reactions.

"Trump, again, with the weird yanking handshake," a user captioned a clip of the exchange between the two at the closing remarks of Gorsuch's swearing-in.

The ceremony began as tradition dictates, Gorsuch took the standard oath affirmed by all federal employees at the first ceremony before his swearing-in at the second ceremony later that morning. But at the conclusion of the second ceremony, the camera's capture of Gorsuch and Trump shaking hands caused the internet to light up with reactions.
