President Donald Trump just clapped back at an epic online troll who posted a photo showing just orange his face looks at the moment. It’s unclear if the photo is real or photoshopped, but either way, Trump wasn’t having it!
On Friday night, a photo was posted by a Twitter account with the name “photowhitehouse,” which claims to be run by a photog named “William Moon.” The picture features Trump looking over his shoulder just as the wind picks up his hair and his facial spray tan looks very dark in contrast to the rest of his skin.

It’s unclear if the orange area has been brightened up to make it look more jarring, but the snap went viral and the President decided to address it directly on his account.
“More Fake News. This was photoshopped, obviously, but the wind was strong and the hair looks good? Anything to demean!” Donald Trump tweeted Saturday. The tweet was a reaction to a black and white version of the same photo which has made its way around social media.

The original tweet which accompanied the photo read, “(Donald Trump) returns to the White House from Charlotte, North Carolina. Photo by William Moon at the South Lawn of the White House on February 7, 2020.”
Also, there are several photos of the same moment, so we know that part is real. But, it appears someone may have used photoshop to make the orange seem a lot brighter than it really was on his face.
Twitter is going nuts over the photo and the memes and comments are crazy! “The stain of Impeachment never washes off,” one person wrote.

“Half the people in this country seriously believe in Donald as the guy who “tells it like it is” when he’s not even honest about his damn skin tone. Truly the asteroid can’t get here quick enough,” another tweet read.
“Summer is coming! Follow me for more makeup tutorials,” one person wrote.
Of course, there were a few people defending the President, pointing out how petty the whole thing is..one fan of the prez tweeted, “You fools can keep calling Trump #OrangeFace all you’d like, But that’s not going to stop him from winning another 4 years and STILL being your president. Your hate motivates.”
Real or Not…this whole thing was funny enough the President actually had to address it!! Or did he?…
