#TrumpMugShot was up on Thursday
Trump has been indicted three times this year, but this is the first time he has been forced to pose for a mug shot.
One businessman was already haggling T shirts on Etsy with the photo of Trump looking at the camera: The e-commerce site also offered Mug shot mugsplus dozens of other pro and con Trump items for sale.
The former president’s facial expression has been compared to that of a villain torturing a doll Sid in Toy Story.‘ while another person quipped, ‘Er Maaaaaaadddd Mad!!!’
Katie Page from Indiana, who was no doubt referring to Trump’s orange makeup, tweeted. “POV When Willy Wonka just kicked you out of the chocolate factory.”
Another X user created one rough drawing of the already iconic photo.
If the real photo (as confirmed by CNN) was eventually published, many doubted it was the real article: “There have been so many fake Trump mug shots I’m not sure…is that it?” @_iamblakely tweeted at 4:55pm PDT.
sure enough one of the pictures The circulating photo, which showed a scowling Trump, was an older photo that had been photoshopped. Trump was previously photographed wearing a solid red tie as he landed at the Georgia airport, while the manipulated image showed him wearing a red, white and blue striped tie.
A Trump supporter said the official mugshot made the 77-year-old look “tough, young and angry.”
So many people flooded the Fulton County Jail’s website to see the mugshot — and make sure it wasn’t fake this time — that their website actually crashed.
Images shared before the official photo was released included Trump edited as Ryan Gosling’s photo Ken from “Barbie” and as medieval knight head bowed (or possibly) Ned Stark from “Game of Thrones”, who was famously beheaded for defying the cruel King Joffrey.
