Jill Biden and Janna Ryan Exchanged an Awfully Painful Handshake

Unlike Michelle Obama and Ann Romney, who sacked up and hugged it out onstage after their husbands debated last week, Janna Ryan and Jill Biden couldn’t even bring themselves to share an awkward ass-out embrace. Instead, they shook hands gingerly while Janna made the kind of facial grimace that’s usually reserved for horrific car accidents or unpleasant odors. Clearly, her Smaul Fryan still needs some work. Wonder if they went for the limp-wristed “dead fish” handshake or the aggressive, finger-mangling power grip?
