As @michaelwolf says, the real face of Donald Trump "is the stuff of nightmares"
1/ The context for this tweet: the White House just issued an official statement falsely saying Trump's skin color is the result of "good genes," a propaganda campaign—misinformation—that'd be out of place even in North Korea. Anyone trying to get at the truth is doing good work.
2/ As everyone who reads this feed knows, this isn't a feed focused on people's appearances—no matter who they are. But when the White House casually lies to U.S. voters on a banal issue—intentionally spreading *misinformation*—because it can't admit Trump tans, that's dangerous.
3/ And because I'm also a writer, I do think in terms of metaphors. Everything Donald Trump does to hide his true form from Americans (whether it be with his hair, skin, or anything else) is a metaphor for the penchant for deceit he has now poisoned our values and discourse with.
