Is this Trump tuxedo picture real? -- sorry to sound like a conspiracy theorist

The scale of them on the stairs, to the staircase behind them, and lamps looks weird.

1. Seems pretty normal to me.



Course, both people on the stairs are pretty fake, but that's beside the point

2. Looks photoshopped to me.

Usually a FLOTUS is more elegantly dressed, more natural in her pose. Trump looks wooden.

7. If she's not wearing a cumberbund, then she is the most high-waisted person I've ever seen.

Personally, I hate the high-rise pants with stiletto heel look, but...

She is the epitome of class - low class, that is.

Then I calmed down when I realized Donald can't be pregnant at his age.

A "cut and paste" with possibly some alterations to the figures.

4. It's real, it is his completely unnatural body language

that throws the eyes for a loop.

This is an unhealthy, obese man who has spent the majority of his life behind a desk, elbows resting. He doesn't know what to do with himself otherwise.

Looking at this picture, I can't help noticing the parallels.

12. When you blow it up it's pretty obvious a cut-and-paste job.

It looks like they're floating on the steps not actually standing.

50. Yes I think so too

The shadows look unnatural, especially on Chump's left side.

It looks like somebody pasted fashion models bodies on the steps of the White House, and then pasted the Chump-and-Melania faces over the models' faces. They did a pretty decent job though. But we know that Chump is way fatter than that, and he probably can't pose on the steps with his shoe lifts like that. Has Melania ever worn a fashion-tux like that?

I'm glad I'm not on their Christmas card list.

13. The answer is simple: he wouldn't pose for a Christmas card pcture because he's

in a snit so they found some old photo from "better days" and superimposed it. I'll bet someone can find the old photo.

14. Do these stairs make me look fat?

I think the whole point of the photo -- keep the subjects small, relative to the image. Keep blow-hard looking straight on. All so you can't see how obese he really is...

17. I am sorry, but Donald Trump is not that thin

they have angled it or photoshopped it to make him appear much thinner than he is.. He is definitely trying to compete with a much fitter Joe Biden..

34. My feeling also. He looks too fit.

Her or It’s looks just annoy me. By the end of January she will be totally blonde. January 20, a day of joy. Joy that we will say President Biden and joy that I will never see the blimp and the skanky one near the White House.

The photo might be real, but the distance and the angle are obviously intended to conceal something about the subjects.

22. It looks odd because Don is wearing his elevator shoes and the strange way he normally stands

Melanie is 5'11, and she's wearing very tall heels in this photo. The only way he'd be towering over her like this is if he had big lifts in his shoes.

29. Someone hit them with both a shrink and plastic ray?

They must be 4 or almost 5 ft. tall in that picture. Laz laughed and said they turned into evil, skinny hobbits. They also appear to have gotten 10 to 15 years younger.

Looks like their image was pulled off an old People or Spy magazine and the shadows filled in.

After seeing this, I think the Trump one .... perspective is legit but they went out of their way to make Donald look 50 pounds lighter.

I vote Photoshop.

Nothing says "Warm family holidays" like a couple in matching tuxedos ... This is another example of trashy people playing to a trashy crowd who think that tuxedos make them look "classy."

45. Zoom in and you can see Melanomas hair is cut out of another picture.

And comparing this to the Obama photo, did someone take scissors to the bottom of the red carpet? That and the tacky isolation technique looks really fake.

46. On close up, it looks Photoshopped to me.

The edges around their bodies, especially Melanoma’s head, and around both their shoulders, look unrealistically sharp. Either Photoshop, or somebody has mad X-acto knife skills.

Also, since when has Trump looked that — er, — fit & trim?

These people can’t even make a genuine Christmas card. Phonies.

48. That's why I commented in another thread

that no self-respecting photographer would claim that "portrait" as their work.

This one (Andrea Hanks) is. Her name is on it, and although it is not on her instagram account, there are other equally poorly composed photos there. https://www.instagram.com/ahanksphoto/?hl=en
