Marco Rubio's awkward 'hug' with Ivanka Trump looks worse than it sounds

Sen. Marco Rubio went in for the hug with Ivanka Trump on Tuesday, and, well, something happened. We're just not sure what.

It wasn't quite a chummy embrace or a firm denial. Rather, as displayed in a delightfully awkward photo, Rubio approached stiff as a board while Trump stood straight, not reciprocating.

Not since the Florida Republican took a water break during his 2013 State of the Union response has he looked so stilted.

At least no one on the Internet noticed.

Just kidding. Twitter seized the moment, gleefully spreading the photo snapped by Associated Press photographer Erica Werner.
