[WATCH] Why did Melania Trump grimace after meeting Vladimir Putin?

Melania Trump's facial expression after meeting Russian President Vladimir Putin has sparked Twitter reactions.

A Youtube screengrab of US first lady Melania Trump after meeting Russian President Vladimir Putin.

JOHANNESBURG – US first lady Melania Trump showed either a shocked, awed, confused, horrified, or a combination-of-everything expression after shaking hands with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Melania joined her husband US President Donald Trump during a meeting with Putin in Helsinki, Finland, where the two world leaders reportedly discussed how to improve relations between their two nations.

In a video, after shaking hands and a brief spoken exchange with Putin, Mrs Trump, in a yellow coat, turns to the glare of the cameras with a strange, frozen expression on her face.

This is the latest tense, secondhand-embarrassment-producing moment for the First Lady, beginning with Trump leaving her in the dust while greeting the Obamas on Inauguration Day in 2017.

Check out some of the responses to the first lady’s expression on Twitter:
