Melania Trump And The President Accused Of Photoshop Fail In Annual Christmas Card
the annual Christmas photo that First Lady Melania Trump and the President get all dressed up for, but this year there was a photoshop.
It is the annual Christmas card photo that First Lady Melania Trump and the President get all dressed up for.
“Merry Christmas from President Donald J. Trump and First Lady Melania Trump,” she tweeted alongside the couple’s Christmas portrait of the pair in their matching formal outfits.

The photograph, perhaps the last they will ever take on the Grand staircase of the White House before departing on January 20, was celebrated by many people.
“I love Melania’s outfit,” one fan wrote.
“Stunning,” another wrote.
“Love this picture! The loveliest First Lady and best president ever! Merry Christmas!” one person wrote.
But as has become something of a tradition among internet sleuths following the publishing of photographs of the first family, many suggested something was wrong about the picture.
People noticed there is no contact between Mr Trump’s arm and Melania’s jacket. Also there is no contact shadow at Mr Trump’s foot. The photo looks eerily similar to one taken with Prince Charles and Camilla.
2/2 Very Bad PhotoShop

Some suggested Mr Trump had been dropped into the picture, citing a very similar looking image featuring the President and Prince Charles.
Others said the shadow cast by the pair on the wall behind them was unrealistic.
“It looks as if a photo was taken of a cardboard cutout,” one person wrote.
“Weirdest cut and paste job ever seen. They both look two dimensional cut outs/ anime, superimposed onto a screen. DT’s face is from a prior photo. Bizarre until the very end,” another wrote.
Okay photo experts – is this photoshopped? No idea why they would need to – they do live there. But the odd outlines of them, particularly up around their heads, make this look like a bad collage. What say you, people with photoshop skills? pic.twitter.com/Biaw03971b
