What Barack Obama and Donald Trump really* talked about in the Oval Office (*-not really)

On Thursday, President Barack Obama met with President-elect Donald Trump in the Oval Office. By all accounts, the 90-minute meeting was cordial and productive as the two discussed the upcoming transition, the status of certain policies, and their golf games. OK, so we don't know if golf came up in the meeting, but we do know both men are avid golfers. And when you keep that in mind, these photos of them talking take on an entirely different meaning. With that said, here's the conversation we imagined the two most powerful golfers in the world having at the White House.
