For as long as there have been rude gestures throughout the history of time, children seeking some form of rebellion have done their best to use them while still disguising the usage to stay out of trouble. The same applies to the orange commander-in-chief of the United States.
In a video tweeted by @Politics_PR, it’s been revealed that the man representing the United States flipped off the Italian Prime Minister.

Okay, sure, one could say he’s scratching the side of his head. However, how many times as children have we pretended to scratch the sides of our head while secretly flipping someone off? See the satisfied smile afterwards? Anyone with any common sense knows to utilize their index finger for things that involve one finger. It doesn’t even feel natural to scratch the side of your face with your middle finger. Go ahead. Try it.
Twitter users responded likewise.
