Trump sticking his hand out for a high five and ¡Jabe! eagerly complying with all the intensity of a prepubescent sixth grade football player lining up for his first snap on his face probably qualifies as a shit (or compliance) test that the governor failed. Then, feeling that he had momentarily gained Trump's approval, ¡Jabe! goofily reacts to Trump's quip with "that was a good one". He instinctively submitted. He couldn't help himself.
This exchange, standing on his tippie toes for the group photo, unsuccessfully demanding Trump "apologize to my wife"--¡Jabe! was really trying to put Trump in his putative place but ¡Jabe! isn't made of stern enough stuff. Consequently he came off looking like an inept try-hard every time.
Heartiste elucidates (the comments are great, too).
