For someone who constantly reassures everyone about how amazing he is, President-elect Donald Trump has a rather fragile ego. This was on full display when he complained to NBC’s president regarding an unflattering picture of him they had used during their campaign coverage. He also complained about photos of himself that NBC used that he found unflattering, POLITICO reported.
‘Trump turned to NBC News President Deborah Turness at one point, the source said, and told her the network won’t run a nice picture of him, instead choosing “this picture of me,” as he made a face with a double chin. Turness replied that they had a “very nice” picture of him on their website at the moment.’
For someone who spends so much time on Twitter, Trump doesn’t seem to get the internet. Telling people not to do something is the absolute best way to get them do the exact opposite of what you want.
As evidence of that, here are some of the internet’s best reaction’s to Trump’s whining about unflattering pictures.
‘I hear Donald Trump really hates this photo. So make sure not to retweet it. Ever.’

‘#TrumpleChin is bad. Very weak. I have a tremendous chin. Other chins shouldn’t be allowed on Twitter. Sad.’

‘Do NOT retweet unflattering pictures of my double chin. Do NOT ever use the hashtag #TrumpleChin. Thank you.’

‘Apparently Donald Trump is very upset
@NBC used an unflattering photo of him. Anyway, here’s him and a pelican. Please don’t RT.’

‘I can’t remember which one we’re not supposed to RT. The one with his double chin or one where his mouth looks like a butthole?’

Sharing these pictures might be a bit petty, but considering all the people Trump has insulted over the past year, we feel that a bit of pettiness is justified. Besides, if something as insignificant as an unflattering photo is enough to upset him then he really doesn’t have the temperament to be President of the United States.
