President Trump’s State of the Union address had not even started when a social media controversy took place.
Some Twitter users were convinced that Trump snubbed Pelosi of a handshake.
Trump hands over a transcript of his speech and it appears Pelosi offered a handshake in which Trump walks away.
What is not clear is if this was done intentionally or if Trump just missed Pelosi’s hand being outstretched.
Watch the videos below and judge for yourself.

Pelosi offers the handshake. Trump either doesn't see or doesn't reciprocate. Wowza.
