An image of President Trump walking through the wind recently went viral for revealing what appeared to be an incredibly stark, misplaced tan line along the side of his face.

As people all over the internet began making fun of the photo, many Trump supporters claimed it was photoshopped to accentuate the tan line.

President Trump quickly struck out at the photo, claiming it was photoshopped but also that his hair looked great.

If Trump was going to fire anyone today, he should have started with whoever is doing his spray tans. https://t.co/wZnde7gqNc— Josh Bierman (@Josh Bierman)1581134861.0
No millionaire's spray tan should ever look this bad.

Hopefully President Trump can get a new tanning guy before the 2020 elections...a tan line like that one is the kind of thing voters might not be able to overlook.
