By all accounts, President Trump is a very image-obsessed man: The process by which he keeps his hair in check is reportedly elaborate, and he puts a lot of consideration into small details, including his puzzling tie length. So it’s not very surprising to learn that some of the images on his official Facebook page have been digitally tweaked to make him appear thinner and, um, longer of finger.
A brave Gizmodo reporter has taken a deep look into the photos posted on Trump’s official Facebook and Instagram accounts in recent months, and has pointed out that those images are suspiciously different from the White House’s official photos.
