Theresa May and Jean-Claude Juncker, the European Commission president, were filmed having a seemingly heated exchange before a morning session on the second day of a EU summit in Brussels.
Although no audio was available, May looked annoyed, probably by never-ending discussions of the UK’s post-Brexit relations with the European Union, while Juncker visibly tried to calm her down.
Their less than cordial exchange instantly went viral on social media, with netizens imagining what exactly the two were talking about:
'Shall I dance for you?"— Reverend 'Dynamite' Dick Dingleberry (@Elephan_Titus) 14 December 2018
'Please don't Theresa.'
'Go on, just a little shimmy.'
'I don't think that will help.'
I can do the robot one again.'
'That's not going to…'
'Throw me a bone here, please, I have literally nothing else to offer.'
