Trump called out a viral picture of his tan line for being edited but originals didn’t look too different , A photo of President Donald Trump went viral on Saturday, As users pointed out a stark tan line present between the border of his face and his hairline ,
The president didn’t, however, comment on the colorized version of the photo that also showed a similar tan line. In response, the president tweeted that the photo was “Fake News,” adding the black-and-white photo was photoshopped.
Whether the photo is photoshopped, there is a documented history of questions into the president’s constant orange glow. “This was photoshopped, obviously, but the wind was strong and the hair looks good? Anything to demean!”
The colorized version of the photo, which was also shared across social media, seems to show less contrast than a black-and-white version the president shared, but the difference between the pale white tones around the president’s hairline and the dark orange tone of the rest of his face is clear.
The photos were shared on the Twitter and Instagram accounts of a man named Willaim Moon, who in his Twitter bio claims to be a “White House Correspondent, Journalist, Photographer, Poet and Pesco Vegetarian.”
Despite this, Moon is not listed as a White House photographer and neither his Instagram or Twitter accounts are verified. His Twitter name is “White House Photos,”
While his Instagram name is “thewhitehousephotos.” As Vox noted, Moon only posts photographs of events that are open to the press. The Trump Administration’s official photographer is Shealah Craighead.
More Fake News. This was photoshopped, obviously, but the wind was strong and the hair looks good? Anything to demean! https://twitter.com/mnwvdl/status/1226120872135712768 …
