Hilarious memes about Donald Trump's 'tan' lines go viral as he's compared to character from 'Cats'

A picture that appears to show President Trump with exaggerated fake tan lines on his face has gone viral on social media, despite him vehemently claiming that the bright orange streaks along his forehead were photoshopped.

The image, which was initially shared by photographer, William Moon, has seen the 45th President of the United States be compared to characters in the movie Cats and Robin Williams in Mrs. Doubtfire.

In fact, some are even using the hashtag #OrangeFace on Twitter to compare the photo to those that were unearthed of Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, wearing blackface.

Watch as world leaders appear to gossip about Donald Trump: 

Trump took to Twitter this weekend to claim that the photo was photoshopped, but that his "hair looks good". "More Fake News. This was photoshopped, obviously, but the wind was strong and the hair looks good? Anything to demean!" he asserted.

"Someone removed trump’s horrible fake tan in photoshop and all i see is judi dench in cats [sic]," wrote one Twitter user, while another corroborated "Trump is so anti-socialism he's even against the even distribution of spray tan on his face."

In a statement to the Daily Mail, Moon conceded that the image had been altered. "The picture was never photoshopped, but used the Apple smartphone's photo app to adjust the color of the picture," he said.

Trump purportedly prefers to apply his own makeup, in private, and has allegedly refused the services of taxpayer-funded White House makeup artists.
