Because how could you not?

We all knew that President Donald J. Trump's first meeting with Pope Francis could most certainly be nothing if not memorable.

Considering the Pope's now famous remarks during the 2016 Presidential campaign, in which he shared his view that, "A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian," one might easily expect a face-to-face confrontation between the two world leaders to be somewhat tense at best.

According to the New York Times, Trump responded in kind.

"Mr. Trump responded immediately at a campaign rally in Kiawah Island, S.C. Discussing the Islamic State, [Trump said that] 'their primary goal is to get to the Vatican. If and when the Vatican is attacked ... the pope would only wish and have prayed that Donald Trump would have been elected president.'"

Of course, all big boys know that people in such esteemed positions as those of the Pope and the President of the United States of America have to put such squabbles aside when performing the duties of their office — AKA posing for photo ops in front of large crowds of press.

Alas, try as they might to put on the good show, the pictures making the rounds show that this has been a particularly difficult task to pull off for poor Pope Francis.

Happily, for the rest of us, the good people of Twitter have already begun to do what the good people of Twitter do best.

Not only have they shared informative insights about the Pope's position on climate change and his gifting of his 2015 encyclical on the environment and climate change to President #45, but they have worked full-steam ahead to keep us all from sinking into a further pit of despair by letting the one-liners, memes, and Munsters-theme song parodies fly.
