People Are Trolling Trump With "Alternative Photos" After He Shared An Inauguration One

"I love the alternative style photography."

Posted on January 24, 2017, at 2:26 p.m. ET

President Trump on Tuesday proudly shared a framed panoramic photo he received that was taken on Inauguration Day. He tweeted that it will be hung in the West Wing of the White House where the press will see it.

A photo delivered yesterday that will be displayed in the upper/lower press hall. Thank you Abbas!

Many people saw the post as a subtweet related to Trump's continued anger at media reports over his inauguration crowd size.

.@realDonaldTrump Oh no, honey, you're still all up in arms over the crowd size. I worry the press might laugh at you about this, dear.

Still obsessing about the size of his inauguration crowd!

The whole controversy blew up in recent days when White House spokesman Sean Spicer lied about the size of Trump's inauguration crowd and then adviser Kellyanne Conway later defended the press secretary for providing "alternative facts."


People also quickly noticed that the date printed on the framed panoramic photo was wrong, given the inauguration took place on Jan. 20. Many joked that it was not a mistake, but rather an "alternative date."

@KrisSanchez @FPofdallaire It's an alternative date.

@brianstelter Brian, its called ALTERNATIVE date

It's not the wrong date, it's an alternative date.

Many others said the panorama, which was taken from an angle that did not show the full crowd, reflected Trump's unique taste for "alternative photography."

@realDonaldTrump I see you like alternative photography.

@realDonaldTrump i love the alternative style photography

Singer Mikel Jollett then offered Trump several other suggestions of inauguration photos that the president could frame.

@realDonaldTrump Here's another you should frame:

@realDonaldTrump You could make a collage of these:

Others soon also offered photos with different angles.

@realDonaldTrump @CraigRBrittain Good one, @potus. Here's the same picture, from another angle.

@realDonaldTrump here's another one you might like. Please feel free to hang this one too.

A tumbleweed even featured in one of the photos...

So remember: For every fact or photo, there is always an alternative.

@MrTommyCampbell the crowd isn't photoshopped to appear bigger, it's alt-authentic
