As world leaders convened in Argentina for the annual G20 summit Friday morning, Russian President Vladimir Putin and Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman greeted each other like they were best pals.
Careful, it's eerily satisfying to watch.
Twitter thinks the two autocrats share a special bond in their manipulation of President Donald Trump, who coincidentally entered the room in the middle of the greeting.
The revelations of Trump's secret business dealings with Russia, along with his refusal to accept that bin Salman ordered the brutal murder of Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi, make this gif a perfect sign of the times.
Quite the bromance.
Putin and bin Salman were elated seated next to one another.
While en route to Buenos Aires Thursday, Trump abruptly canceled his scheduled meeting with Putin on Twitter.
Nevertheless, the Kremlin persisted, and Trump ended up having a quick chat with Putin Friday morning.
