Trump is trying to make himself look thinner with altered Facebook photos: report

Published

on

A new report from tech news website Gizmodo claims that President Donald Trump has been posting altered photos of himself to Facebook that make him look thinner than he actually is.

Specifically, Gizmodo claims that “Trump’s official Facebook and Instagram accounts have published photos of the president that have been manipulated to make him look thinner.” In total, the website found at least three different photos that have been changed in a way to shave some size off the president’s figure.

The website then posts side-by-side comparisons of one photo recently posted on Trump’s social media accounts with the original photos of the president that were posted on the White House Flickr page.

“As you can see in the comparison above, Trump’s right shoulder has been slimmed down and his face is looking thinner,” the publication reports. “He’s also gotten a haircut — well, a digital one anyway — and in one of the strangest alterations, Trump’s fingers have been made slightly longer. Seriously.”

Strangely, another photo cited by Gizmodo also appears altered to make the president’s fingers look longer than they were in the original.

"This is the story of a coward and a commander," said the ad's narrator. "The coward Trump dodged the draft. Jim Mattis led American troops for forty years. While a frightened Trump hides from protesters in a deep bunker firing off tweets, Jim Mattis does what he's always done: Leads. While Donald Trump angrily attacks, General Mattis' words deserve to be heard by every American."

Maxine Waters calls for Trump’s Cabinet initiate the 25th Amendment ‘before this would-be dictator takes us all down’

Published

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA) called for Donald Trump to be removed from office on Friday.

"Is there one brave member of Trump’s cabinet who would move to initiate the 25th Amendment to remove him from office?" Waters asked on the president's favorite social networking platform.

The 25th Amendment would allow Vice President Mike Pence to ascend to the presidency if a majority of Trump's cabinet declares "the president is unable to discharge the powers and duties of his office."

"Now is the time to save our country before this would-be dictator takes us all down!" Waters warned.
