United States President Donald Trump’s first official foreign trip resulted in a bevvy of memes on social media, and those featuring Pope Francis were the most hilarious ones. Pictures of an ecstatic looking Trump standing next to the pontiff who seemed stoic if not sad, went viral. While many speculated the Pope’s expression was induced by his meeting with Trump, that doesn’t really seem the case anymore. Now, the Pope clicking for pictures with Canadian PM Justin Trudeau are now going viral, for exactly the same reason. While Trudeau is known to be one of the most charming politicians right now, the Pope clearly did not seem too impressed.

While there were definitely other pictures from the meeting, this one garnered the most traction and got a lot of people talking on the Internet, for obvious reasons. While comparisons with the photo in which the Pope posed just as gloomily with Trump were inevitable, this also resulted in many on Twitter ‘officially’ giving the expression a name — the ‘Resting Pope Face’. Others found his expression relatable, as to that of kids who were made to pose for pictures forcefully with their relatives at family functions, while all they want to do is go out and have some fun!
