Pope Francis Says Meeting With Sanders Was Just 'Good Manners'
Pope Francis doesn't want anyone getting the wrong idea about his short meeting with Democratic presidential contender Bernie Sanders.
At first, because of the pope's scheduled trip to Greece, it was unclear if Sanders would get to actually meet Pope Francis. After the meeting, the pope tried to make it clear that his quick meeting was not any kind of political endorsement.

"This is good manners. It's called good manners and not getting mixed up in politics. If anyone thinks that greeting someone means getting involved in politics, they should see a psychiatrist," the AP reported the pope said.

Can't take a joke? Around here, Poe's law is the law of the land.
