Would you want Steve Bannon grabbing your leg?

White House Chief Strategist Bannon was on stage at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) this week, alongside Chief of Staff Reince Priebus.

As Bannon handed the microphone back to the moderator, he tried to give Priebus what was presumably a friendly tap on the knee.

But Priebus' reaction was incredible.

Not a great look, but Newt Gringrich was impressed.

Erm, ok then, Newt.

Can't understand what Preibus' problem was, really.
