Awkward ASEAN handshake between Duterte, Trump appears in ‘The Simpsons’

President Rodrigo Roa Duterte makes a cameo in a recently released "The Simpsons" short that presents an imagined encounter between special counsel Robert Mueller and US President Donald Trump. 

US Attorney General Jeff Sessions takes Mueller to the Trump tower, where Trump promptly drops $750 million as a bribe. But before this, viewers can spot a framed photograph behind the US President. 

The photo shows the viral awkward handshake during the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) summit, where Trump had trouble figuring out where to put his hands. Next to him was Duterte.
