TFW You Touch the Orb

Trump touched the orb.

Of the many bizarre happenings on Donald Trump’s ongoing trip to Saudi Arabia, perhaps none is stranger than an intimate — save for plenty of photographers documenting — moment when Saudi Arabia’s king Salman and Egypt’s president Abdel Fattah el-Sisi, along with Trump, placed their hands on a glowing orb at the Global Center for Combating Extremist Ideology. (Melania Trump, standing just behind her husband, did not, it appears, get to touch it.) It’s a weird enough image on its own, but add Trump looking like the globe is both granting him a wish — a third scoop of ice cream, perhaps — and allowing him to peer into the future, and it’s meme-worthy. So, without further explanation, mostly because all I’ve got is … it’s an orb, Select All is proud to present some of our favorite selections from Orb Twitter.

All hail orb.
