Donald Trump Becomes A Meme Thanks To New Photo

President of the United States Donald Trump has saw himself become a meme once again after a photo of himself caught in the wind has gone viral.

The photo shows the POTUS with his hair blowing back in the wind as he makes his way back home to the White House- however, it's the colour change from his face to his hair line that has really caught people's attention.

The snap was taken yesterday by photographer William Moon, who uses the Twitter account @photowhitehouse - despite the Twitter handle, Moon is not affiliated with the White House and isn't a member of the White House News Photographers Association.


Alongside the photo, he wrote: "@realDonaldTrump⁩ 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".

But it wasn't long before the photo was picked up by other social media users who included their own captions, such as: "My man looks like he fell asleep while eating a lasagne", "If you can't manage your own face, you shouldn't manage the country", and "Me after watching exactly one makeup YouTube".

Others compared him to the sun out of Teletubbies and even a 'reverse panda'.


The colour contrast looks starker in some images, suggesting that some have been doctored, while one that has been changed to black and white looks particularly striking.

Trump's year-round glow is said to be down to a tanning bed that he takes with him everywhere he goes, according to former aide Omarosa Manigault Newman who wrote a book about the president.

Meanwhile,Vanity Fair claims the president likes to put on his own translucent makeup powder before making television appearances to avoid looking 'too orange on-screen'.


According to Vox, Trump, 73, has previously said energy-efficient light bulbs are to blame for his perma-tan.

During a rally in Milwaukee, he reportedly said: "The new light bulb costs five times as much, and it makes you look orange. And I was more interested in the orange than I was in the cost."
