Nope, the hair does not look good. Nor does the foundation. ‘Jest’, or self-delusion?

Snopes has an explainer, of course. The photographer is a ‘Trump enthusiast’ (which is a whole story in itself), not actually affiliated with the WH. Official photos of the same event show the same pale ‘hair halo’, but the color of the face itself is closer to boiled ham than pumpkin pie. Or vivid glow of a setting sun, if that’s what one sees…
This picture was never photoshopped, but used the Apple smartphone’s photo app to adjust the color of the picture.

If any female politician of any party put on their makeup like Trump it would be endless fodder, yet without social media we would never know Trump’s face looked like that because the press is covering for him pic.twitter.com/TvMfkee3Iv

There was a widely circulated tweet photoshopping Trump’s face into one of Bugs Bunny’s exploding-cigar cartoons, but Twitter pulled out. No doubt for copyright violations, she said piously.
