German Chancellor Angela Merkel suffered a disturbing “violent tremor” during a ceremony in Berlin today.

Video shows Merkel standing with Ukrainian President Vladimir Selensky when she begins to noticeably shake.


Sputnik reports (translated):

When the German national anthem sounds, both stand together on a red pedestal. Then the Chancellor suddenly begins to tremble uncontrollably. While her body vibrates more and more violently from head to legs, the Ukrainian President remains calm.

“Water shortage” during the “heat of the day” was to blame.

Merkel said at a subsequent press conference that she drank three glasses of water in the meantime.

Here’s another angle:

The 64-year-old Merkel has been a vocal opponent of President Donald Trump and has advocated for open borders, which has flooded the country with Muslim immigrants.
