My tan is 100% real — and very presidential!
President Trump denounced as “fake news” a viral photo that suggests his youthful bronze glow is less than natural.
“This was photoshopped, obviously, but the wind was strong and the hair looks good?” Trump wrote on Twitter Saturday, apparently defending his famed comb-over coif. “Anything to demean!”
The image was originally posted in color by a photographer identified as William Moon using the Twitter handle @photowhitehouse. The shutterbug is reportedly not a member of the official White House press corps but appears to have access to many Trump events at the White House.
The original photo appears to confirm suspicions that Trump either uses a spray-on bronzer or a tanning bed to keep his face looking vibrant.
The photographer replied to the president by insisting that he only altered the photo by using an iPhone app to make it black and white.
It also seems to exposes his white root on his head, indicating that he dyes his hair.
The president has insisted in the past that his tan is legit and attributed it to “good genes.”
