Donald Trump and Peter Thiel Attempt Handshake High Five Thing

Trump is meeting with tech leaders and it’s about as bizarre as you’d expect.

Here’s some highlights:

Looks like Tim Cook of Apple is sitting right next to Facebook board member and ardent Trump supporter Peter Thiel, who is seated right next to Trump. Sheryl Sandberg, the COO of Facebook is next to Vice President-elect Pence and Alphabet (formerly named Google) CEO Larry Page. Next to them is Amazon CEO and Washington Post owner Jeff Bezos.

And here’s Trump saying that Thiel, to his left, was the one who decided who should and shouldn’t be invited to the meeting.

Does this mean it was really Thiel who apparently snubbed Twitter CEO jack Dorsey? You’d think Dorsey might get an invitation, considering Trump’s love-affair with his platform.

And here’s Trump saying Thiel is a “special guy,” followed by a, uh, some sort of handshake, high five thingy.
