THE DON YOUNG HANDSHAKE SURVIVORS CLUB, IN PHOTOS

We asked Must Read Alaska newsletter readers to send us photos of them shaking hands with Congressman Don Young, who is known to have a firm handshake, even at his “Young” age of 85.

He’s always believed in a firm handshake and admonishes men to “Take your hands out of your pockets!” and shake hands with people.

Here are some of the photos that poured in this morning, followed by the one person who couldn’t seem to get the handshake quite right:

Normal, with bolo.

 

Normal with suspenders.

 

Normal with Standing Tall Guy, and Abraham Lincoln photobombing.

Normal, starstruck.

Normal, with rock star.

 

Normal, plus neckties.

Normal, with little black dress.

Normal, with shovel and MAGA hat, and Ann Young.

Normal, with cool future leader.

Normal, with dreamcatcher.

ALYSE GALVIN HAS AN ENTIRELY DIFFERENT REACTION TO DON YOUNG’S HANDSHAKE

The Democrats’ challenger to Don Young shook his hand after the AFN debate last week, and then yelled at him “That hurts! That hurts!” Her shout was picked up by the microphone, and she was irritable with Young, even while he apologized.

Normal for Alyse Galvin.
