Donald Trump on Saturday spurred some negative remarks regarding a picture of him taken while he was returning to the White House South Lawn. The picture has gone viral on social media, which has given people an opportunity to make a fuss about it. The photo depicts his hair swept back and a strong tan line. The line is orange-hued and completely surrounds his face. The post is trending with a #orangeface.
The image was posted late Friday afternoon. The account on which it was posted was not verified, named White House Photos. The bio of the account read, “White House, Correspondent, Journalist, Photographer, Poet, and Pesco Vegetarian”
White House Photos later tweeted a black and white version of the same picture. The caption was, “Today, @realDonaldTrump was dancing with the sunset and strong winds when he walked to the Oval Office from the Marine One on the South Lawn.” The photo has been taken down, but the tweet remains. Trump has been mocked by other media accounts too regarding the same matter, in the past.
It is believed, that Trump has always been sensitive about his appearance and looks. Trump seemed to be quite fueled by this image. He used sharp words and said, “More fake news. This was photoshopped, obviously, but the wind was strong and the hair looks good? Anything to demean!” It became evident, that Trump seemed quite offended by the move. The accusation of the picture being photoshopped was cleared by the White House Photos account. The account claimed that the picture was not photoshopped. Only a feature of the Apple smartphone’s photo app was used merely to adjust the color of the picture. The picture and the response of Trump, both, were heavily memed afterward.
