US President Donald Trump and Russia's President Vladimir Putin shake hands during a meeting on the sidelines of the G20 Summit in Hamburg, Germany, on July 7, 2017.

U.S. President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin met at the G20 in Hamburg, Germany and shook hands, sending the meme and joke writers into overdrive.

The two presidents appeared to have a cordial encounter, ahead of their more formal sit down at the meeting of the G20, which is a summit of leaders representing the world’s top economies. Here’s an actual photo of that:

This is what Trump said:

According to The New York Times, Trump said, “It’s an honor to be with you,” to which Putin replied, “I’m delighted to meet you.”

Trump and Putin meeting face-to-face for the first time sent the joke writers and editorial cartoonists into a frenzy. Not everyone was negative toward Trump:

But a lot of the jokes were critical of the president. Here are some examples posted on Twitter after the July 7 meeting:

The Trump/Putin meeting in Hamburg occurred with questions still swirling about whether Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential election in the U.S. The world’s economic leaders were meeting in Germany to discuss thorny issues ranging from climate change to migration. The summit was hosted by German Chancellor Angela Merkel, but it was the Putin and Trump historic meeting that was getting the most news attention. Outside, protests surged at the summit.

Trump tweeted about the anticipated meeting, writing, “I look forward to all meetings today with world leaders, including my meeting with Vladimir Putin. Much to discuss.#G20Summit #USA.”

According to The New York Times, Trump also said, “President Putin and I have been discussing various things, and I think it’s going very well. We look forward to a lot of very positive happenings for Russia and for the United States, and for everyone concerned.” It wasn’t yet clear specifically what was discussed, though.

The Times reported that Putin said of Trump: “We spoke over the phone, but phone conversations are never enough, definitely. I hope that, as you have said, our meetings will yield positive results.”

ATTENTION HEAVY I.T. DESK!:…
.
I have two important files within my computer system!… one is called, Non-comments, and the other is labeled, Pro-comments! The Non-comments file, lists sites with which I’ve entered which either have no Comments Window, or impose some hurdle in order for a prospective Comment Logger to make a Post (e.g., demanding a password, demanding to confirm an email or demanding registration… and, et cetera!)! The Pro-comments file, affords at least one Comment Window, that/ which does not infringe upon a user’s Digital Human Rights!
.
To close… I could care less about the SAID FAME of a number of Media outlets!…. and I don’t care about the SAID IMPORTANCE of the story, or who has prepared it!… if the website does not afford at least one Comment Window… AND ONE WHICH DOESN’T VIOLATE DIGITAL HUMAN RIGHTS!… it’ll be as if it never existed! And it simply won’t be entered by me! And so… this– unfortunately!– will be the case with MOST of the Non-Heavy sites you’ve linked us to!
.
Please!… no emails!… Jesus is Lord!
