President Donald Trump’s social media accounts are filled with vile racism, idiotic xenophobia, and inaccurate statistics. And now we can add another category to the list: fake photos.
In recent months, Trump’s official Facebook and Instagram accounts have published photos of the president that have been manipulated to make him look thinner.
If it only happened once you might be able to chalk it up as an accident. But Gizmodo has discovered at least three different retouched photos on President Trump’s social media pages that have been published since October of 2018.
Hit the link for comparisons with the original photos.
Wow. Photos of @POTUS in his social media were recently altered to make him look thinner, but also to MAKE HIS FINGERS LOOK LONGER THAN THEY ARE. Bravo @Gizmodo. (Although for the record: “short-fingered vulgarian” was a collective Spy magazine coinage.) https://t.co/1w1jbr4FOt
