United States of America First Lady Melania Trump turned another year older on Friday, and the White House Twitter handle wished her on the microblogging website. However, what was contentious was the choice of the photograph that was used along with the tweet that inspired a flood of memes and hilarious comments.
The official Twitter handle posted a snap of Mrs Trump ‘sitting all alone’ on a sofa as she is surrounded by media persons. Apart from the memes, the photograph was termed ‘bizarre’ and 'lame'.
The vacant space on the sofa naturally gave good room to the Photoshop experts. From US President Donald Trump eating a pizza to Russian President Vladimir Putin, there were many additions to the snap. One shared a picture of her smiling with former President Barack Obama at a funeral where she was 'happier.'
Mrs Trump's ‘body double’ stories have often surfaced and one expressed delight that at least it is the real one here.
Some wondered why the sofa was the ‘faithful companion’ and her family members were not around and why such a 'sad, lonely photo' was posted on her birthday.
Even tennis legend Martina Navratilova called it ‘rather odd’ and wondered if #freeMelania should trend again. For the unversed, the hashtag had gone viral earlier after netizens noticed some odd moments between the President and the First Lady in terms of chemistry.
Despite all the memes and comments, The First Lady tweeted a snap from her 'wonderful' birthday with her husband Donald Trump and Japan Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and his wife at the White House.
