To use 'text speech', ROTFLMAO! The full video shows clerics and THE ILL kissing his ring, and he was worried about germs? Not only is he rude, he's a liar a well!
Vatican Press Speaker Alessandro Gisotti told journalists on March 28 that he asked Pope Francis why he pulled his hand away when the faithful wanted to kiss his ring in Loreto.
According to Edward Pentin reporting on Twitter, Francis answered that he didn't want to spread germs among the many who had come to greet him.
Gisotti added that it was for reasons of “hygiene," not for Francis, "but to avoid contagion when there are long lines of people."
"He likes to hug people,” Gisotti commented, turning an embarrassing situation into a farce.
