During a meeting in Havana on Monday night, Castro raised Obama’s arm just as he was about to shake his hand. The result was a limp wrist.
Social media lit up with comments:

Obama became the first sitting American president in 88 years to visit the communist island nation. He touched down with the first family on Sunday and is concluding his trip on Tuesday.
