Fox News' Greg Gufteld joked about the "stunt," saying "even Geraldo was like 'Whoa, glad I'm not her.'"

Trump met with German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Friday in Washington, but Trump did not shake her hand. The Tonight Show's Jimmy Fallon joked Trump's relations with Europe, while Last Week Tonight's John Oliver joked that this was the first time anyone asked Trump to touch a woman.
