Photos Comparing Trump And Obama Meeting The Pope

President Donald Trump finally visited the Vatican and Pope Francis looks absolutely thrilled!

Just kidding, the 80-year-old pontiff looks hilariously sad in just about every photo that's coming out of Rome.

In fact, the best humor you'll find on social media Wednesday morning are photos of a miserable-looking Pope and a smiling Trump, the oddest couple there is.

Feast your eyes on exhibit A:

The first women are wearing black out of respect for the Pope, but some people are making jokes about it.

Of course, people just had to post side-by-side comparisons of Pope Francis with Barack Obama versus Pope Francis with Trump.

Clearly, no one misses Barack Obama like his holiness.

The Pope himself got a laugh out of the meeting though, at Trump's expense.

Ah, the ol' "what are you feeding him" line. Classic.

All jokes aside though -- and these are obviously just jokes --  it looks like the meeting between the two leaders was cordial. The Washington Post's reports that the atmosphere warmed up after Francis began the meeting with an initial "stone-face" (hence the photos), and the two leaders exchanged gifts.

The meeting of the two minds is worth noting because of their noticeably different styles. The Pope has been one of Trump's high-profile critics since the presidential campaign.

When asked last February what he thinks about proposal of a border wall, Pope Francis suggested any leader who raised such an idea "is not Christian."

It's also worth noting that among the gifts Pope Francis gave to the Trumps was a writing from the Pope that address environmental justice, the Post reports.

In the encyclical, Francis writes,

The warming caused by huge consumption on the part of some rich countries has repercussions on the poorest areas of the world, especially Africa, where a rise in temperature, together with drought, has proved devastating for farming.

Trump has long been known as a Global Warming skeptic.

In other words, the Pope just sub-tweeted the president of the United States, in person.
