Body language expert weighs in on Trump, Polish first lady's awkward handshake miss


President Donald Trump and the first lady of Poland shared an awkward moment on stage in Warsaw on Thursday when the first lady appeared to reject Trump's attempt at a handshake.

The move sparked a flurry of headlines, including from some left-leaning outlets, highlighting the moment as a "diss" of the American president -- however, a body language expert tells AOL News it probably wasn't a malicious move.

"I don't think it was purposeful," body language expert and author Dr. Lillian Glass told AOL News.

"I don't think it was a personal dig at all," Glas said, noting that first lady Agata Kornhauser-Duda's "gait was mostly fixed on Melania. That was her mission."

The president and first lady Melania Trump were greeted by Polish President Andrzej Duda and his wife, Agata Kornhauser-Duda. Following a photo opportunity, the world leaders shook hands and as Poland's first lady made her way over to Melania, she passed Trump's open hand.

"The reason I think it's not a personal diss is because if you look at her eye level she didn't even look at Donald Trump," said Glass. "She just focused completely on Melania."
