1/ THREAD: After President Biden mentioned "cops who walk the beat, who know the neighborhood, and who can restore trust and safety" in his SOTU Address, Merrick Garland displayed a #Microexpression of a Suppressed Smile.

3/ Increased blinking frequency (above one's baseline normal rate) is a strong indicator of nonspecific anxiety (it's not correlated more strongly with honest anxiety or dishonest anxiety).

1/ THREAD: Body Language Analysis No. 4634: Trump's Tick-like Nonverbal Behavior. #Trump #BodyLanguage #BodyLanguageExpert #CPAC
2/ The shoulder-shrugging and neck foreshortening (colloquially referred to in the video as 'twitching') is a subconsciously-driven, tick-like response Trump exhibits with extremely high frequency when he mispronounces words — and then tries to ad lib his way out of the mistake.
3/ This verbal-nonverbal-verbal cluster behavior is similar to a person coughing whilst simultaneously moving their chair position and/or shifting their buttocks in their chair immediately after farting — in an effort camouflage an embarrassing faux pas.
