What is that horrifically gross thing you're pointing at me? Your what? You're hand? What do you want me to do with it?
In case you weren't aware, Trump hates shaking hands. In his 1997 book The Art of the Comeback, he wrote, "One of the curses of American society is the simple act of shaking hands, and the more successful and famous one becomes the worse this terrible custom seems to get. I happen to be a clean hands freak. I feel much better after I thoroughly wash my hands, which I do as much as possible." On a number of occasions, he later referred to handshaking as "barbaric."
I can definitely see how not wanting to exchange hand bacteria with anybody could be a bit of an issue for somebody whose job essentially is to travel around the country, shaking hands and begging for votes.
Also potentially problematic: standing near poor people, listening quietly while other people express opinions, pretending to care about other organisms that are not named Donald Trump.
