This is so stupid.

It doesn't quite appear that Poland's first lady snubbed President Trump on Thursday, but you'd think otherwise based on the U.S. press' sloppy and overeager coverage.

This all starts with a Twitter user, David Lewis, who tweeted the following video with the caption, "LEGEND":

Based on that abbreviated video, it does indeed seem like Agata Kornhauser-Duda rejected Trump's handshake attempt.

U.S. media certainly seemed to believe that's what happened.

"Donald Trump Just Got Epically Snubbed While Trying to Shake Hands with the First Lady of Poland," read a headline published by Marie Claire magazine.

New York Daily News went with this, "First Lady of Poland snubs President Trump's handshake."

"Handshake Fail: Watch Poland's First Lady Totally Snub Trump in Warsaw," Mediaite promised its readers.

On social media, the press' reactions were less muted.

"Not shaking the hand that grabbed you-know-what. #snub," tweeted columnist Clarence Page.

CNBC blared on its Instagram page, "PRESIDENT TRUMP GETS SNUBBED."
