First, Joe Biden skipped right over the handshake with Boris Johnson to get to his wife first where they “elbow bump.”

Now, one has to presume all these world leaders have long since been vaccinated. Boris Johnson had the Wuhan coronavirus so he doubtless still has antibodies. But that didn’t stop Joe Biden and his wife from doing the “elbow bump.”
