Somebody claiming to do “White House Photos” put up this image of Donald Trump’s bizarre make up job Friday and it went viral. As expected, Trump tagged it “fake” what else?
More Fake News. This was photoshopped, obviously, but the wind was strong and the hair looks good? Anything to demean! https://t.co/t8ptYMCYHf

Now here’s more about the photographer, who apparently doesn’t work at the White House, but is a Trump aficionado, whose work is revered by QAnon, as they scour it to find clues to back up their CT: Vox:
Despite their work now being the subject of intense public interest, Moon remains a mysterious figure. The photographer appears to be a Trump enthusiast who attends White House open press events. […]
Some on social media joked that Moon might be fired for sharing the photo, but the photographer is not affiliated with the White House, and is not a member of the White House News Photographers Association. The official White House photographer is Shealah Craighead, and Moon’s photos seem to come only from open press events. […]
A prolific Twitter user, Moon posts an average of 15 times a day, often sharing photographs with florid captions. Trump “was dancing with the sunset and strong winds when he walked to the Oval Office from the Marine One on the South Lawn,” the copy accompanying the black-and-white shot from Friday reads. And Moon’s thousands of media tweets include photos of the area around the White House, and of nature — especially birds and the moon — around the DC metro area.
The account is also a favorite among some QAnon followers, who scour his posts for clues related to that convoluted conspiracy theory — including Moon’s pinned tweet, a 53-minute long press briefing from 2017.
If this is new to you, the faux tan is not from a tanning bad, it’s from a makeup that he keeps bottles of handy at all times, as his maids at Mar-a-Lago describe. His maids’ descriptions of how Trump operates en famille at Mar-a-Lago provide an interesting snapshot into his character. The people who provided this account quit working for Trump when he went on his illegal immigrant rampage and granted an interview to Washington Post:
Trump loved Tic Tacs. But not an arbitrary amount. He wanted, in his bedroom bureau at all times, two full containers of white Tic Tacs and one container that was half full. The same rule applied to the Bronx Colors-brand face makeup from Switzerland that Trump slathered on — two full containers, one half full — even if it meant the housekeepers had to regularly bring new shirts from the pro shop because of the rust-colored stains on the collars. A special washing machine in the laundry room was reserved for his wife Melania Trump’s clothing.
Donald Trump liked Irish Spring bar soap in his shower. But his housekeepers quickly learned not to throw out his soap even if it had worn down to the tiniest sliver: Trump decided when he wanted something discarded. When that happened, with clothes or newspapers, he would toss them on the floor.
A regular recipient of Trump’s castoff clothing was Melania’s father, Viktor Knavs, Diaz and Morales said.
“They’re the same size and everything,” Morales said. […]
One day in 2013, Viktor Knavs went out to play golf wearing one of Trump’s discarded red baseball caps. When Trump spotted him on the fairway, he blew up, and he ordered his father-in-law, in front of other golfers, to remove the hat and get off the course. Diaz and Morales were in the villa when Knavs returned, threw the hat on the ground and cursed Trump.
The housekeepers pieced together the story from what Amalija Knavs told them in English and what they heard from the caddies who were on the course at the time.
