Being POTUS does mean getting thrown into the media spotlight, it might sound like lots of fun (especially if it happens to be a Trump Photoshop battle), but alas it does come with it's own amusing problems as Donald Trump is finding out. Especially when it comes to being photographed.
The president-elect attended a closed door meeting with the press last week where, among other things, he accused CNN and NBC News of being "dishonest," he also complained about the media's use of unflattering pictures of him. Possibly not the best thing for trump to admit in the same meeting.
The highlight was his reference to the photo below, website Politico reported, "Trump turned to NBC News President Deborah Turness at one point, the source said, and told her the network won’t run a nice picture of him, instead choosing 'this picture of me,' as he made a face with a double chin."
But Trump's delicate sensitivity to unflattering photos along with his accusations of the press being dishonest has meant, obviously, that people were going to circulate those kinds of photos of him even more.
A case in point is the photo below, tweeted (and retweeted over 100,000 times) by The Ellen DeGeneres Show executive producer Andy lassner. It's just begging for a Trump Photoshop battle.
The Origins Of The Trump Photoshop Battle
The photo then worked its way over to Reddit's r/PhotoshopBattle sub where the real fun began, as Reddit's army of photoshoppers did their best (worst?) and made bulbous-chinned Trump into all kinds of very funny variations.
From the inevitable Jabba the Hut to some pretty inspired and creative ones, like a melting candle or E. Honda.
