No, Trump did not photoshop his inauguration photo. But the internet is wild, y’all.

On Friday, in a tweet that since been deleted, the New York Observer’s Dana Schwartz claimed a photo of President Donald Trump and former President Barack Obama had been photoshopped to enlarge Trump’s left hand.

On Friday, in a tweet that since been deleted, the New York Observer's Dana Schwartz claimed a photo of President Donald Trump and former President Barack Obama had been photoshopped to enlarge Trump's left hand.

The photo she referred to is currently hanging in the White House.

Schwartz told BuzzFeed News she found the photos from other tweets, and thought, “his hands looked enormous” in them.

“Like clown shoes enormous,” she added.

She then used the photo and tweeted with confidence that the POTUS had altered the photo to make his hand appear bigger.

The only issue was Schwartz had put two different photos next to each other in her original tweet. She then went on Getty to download a similar juxtaposed photos to prove the photoshopping. But they were still different photos.

Schwartz referred this new side-by-side to skeptics, and maintained the photo was altered. (Her tweet has since been deleted.)

For quick reference, the photo on the right in Schwartz’s updated tweet is supposedly taken from Getty Images’ news wire, and the photo on the left was a screenshot someone had taken from an ABC News TV special.

ABC News confirmed to BuzzFeed News the photo they used in the special was a press photo.
