The optics of what were previously mundane social greeting cues, such as handshakes and hugs, are now prime movers of public opinion in the political world of 2017.

If he didn’t already know, Marco Rubio found this out Tuesday when an awkward photo of him hugging first daughter Ivanka Trump went viral on social media.

Greeting Ivanka before she met with lawmakers Tuesday to discuss a potential program for paid family leave and child tax credit, Rubio has no video evidence to prove the picture caught him in a bad light. But he’ll certainly be kicking himself, wishing he was a little taller. And maybe he wishes he got out a little more in high school.
