Donald Trump has furiously claimed an image showing him with a dramatic orange tan is ‘fake news’ and has been photoshopped.

The US President has been widely mocked by social media users after the snap was posted by the unofficial Twitter account White House Photos on Friday.

The original picture showing the Commander-in-Chief walking to the Oval Office was taken by photographer William Moon, a reported Trump-enthusiast who attends press events.

Many Twitter users began mocking Trump using the #orangeface hashtag and comparing his appearance to cats, corgis, Mrs Doubtfire and the Oompa Loompas from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

One meme included the caption: ‘Tupperware after you store spaghetti in it.’

Another quipped that Trump’s look was ‘girls before YouTube make up tutorials’.

One Twitter user added: ‘Nobody tell him that his foundation doesn’t match his face.’

But Trump hit back in a trademark Twitter rant in which he claimed the black-and-white photo had been digitally altered.

‘This was photoshopped, obviously, but the wind was strong and the hair looks good? Anything to demean!’

Following Trump’s claims, Mr Moon tweeted that the photo was not ‘photoshopped’ but he had used the ‘Apple smartphone’s photo app to adjust the color of the picture’.

Moon is not employed by the White House and is not a member of the White House News Photographers Association.

His Twitter bio reads: ‘White House Correspondent, Journalist, Photographer, Poet and Pesco Vegetarian.’

Similar pictures of Trump at the same time taken by official photographers clearly show a tan line, but the colour is not as dramatic.

A Washington Post investigation into the photo concluded that a bronzer, or artificial tanner, led to the orange hue on Trump’s face.

Bobrisky death report – See what Nigerians are saying

car person

News made the rounds earlier today on the death of controversial cross dresser Bobrisky, which happened to be a fake report.

The socialite himself came online moments ago to debunk the rumours saying those that wish death upon him will die before him and he would slay to their burial.

Nigerians however trooped to social media upon getting hold of the report and you would surely want to be briefed on what they have been saying about the fake Bobrisky death report.

Bobrisky is probably making a snap video cursing that blog that’s reporting fake news about him/her being dead

If it turns out that AIT did bad journalism, Bobrisky should sue their arse. What nonsense!

Fireworks thrown at firefighters, houses pelted with eggs and hooded yobs on mopeds: Gangs of teenage thugs cause Halloween misery – Manchester Evening News

Thank you for subscribingWe have more newslettersShow meSee our privacy notice

Gangs of anti-social yobs took to the streets of Greater Manchester on Halloween to wreak havoc.

Fireworks were thrown at houses and firefighters; eggs were thrown at windows; and buckets of sweets were stolen.

A fire service watch manager was left with a nasty burn after being targeted by thugs.

Police and fire crews were called to a number of incidents involving thug teenagers across the region on Thursday night (October 31).

There was reportedly a large group of ‘hooded youths’ on mopeds seen ‘carrying tools’ near the Longford Park area in Stretford, Trafford.

A resident said they were ‘deliberately scaring’ kids out trick or treating.

In a tweet, officers from GMP’s Stretford division said: “There was a large number of off road bikes causing havoc all over Greater Manchester this evening.

“Neighbourhood officers from Stretford and Urmston worked together and managed to safely seize three bikes.

All

“Checks revealed two to be stolen. One male was arrested.”

Teenagers were reportedly seen throwing eggs at the house windows in Stretford.

The same thing happened around the Park Road area of Sale, and in the Wardle area of Littleborough.

A Wardle resident posted on Faceook: “I just came home from work and my front door is full of eggs.

“So are the people of Wardle that desperate for a chocolate and sweet, that if you don’t give them they damage your property shame on you.

“I thought that I lived in a lovely place.”

A large group of youths were spotted ‘throwing eggs at peoples windows’ in Edgeley in Stockport and a ‘group of girls’ were seen doing the same thing near Peel Hall Park in Wythenshawe.

A group of youths were caught throwing eggs in the Bromley Cross area of Bolton before being stopped by police.

While dealing with the group on Darwen Road, officers stopped a child with 25 snap bags of cannabis, GMP Bolton North reported.

Groups of kids throwing fireworks was also a massive problem.

Youths were reportedly spotted throwing fireworks at cars on Stockport Road, Heaton Moor Road and Reddish Road in Stockport.

One Withington resident said she had called the police due to a ‘group of kids’ throwing fireworks on Old Moat Lane.

She said: “My son asked to come back from trick or treating because of this, it’s getting out of hand.”

As firefighters were tackling a bonfire at Crumpsall Park at around 8.45pm last night, a watch manager was hit by a firework aimed at the crew.

As Paul Marston and a colleague approached the blaze, a group of roughly 15 youths dressed in black began to aim lighted fireworks in their direction.

WM Marston was hit by one of them – leaving him with burnt hair and skin.

cannabis

Speaking the morning after the attack, he said in his 27 years of working for the Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service, this is the first time he’s been injured in an attack.

He added: “I’m Manchester born and bred and work hard to help protect my community – it’s my job, I’m proud to serve, but I must confess last night’s incident has shaken me.

“As we approached the bonfire I saw a group of youngsters and my intention was to go over and speak to them about fire safety. But as soon as we saw fireworks being lit we got a sense of what was about to happen.

“When I was hit, the pain wasn’t the thing I remember most clearly but the impact followed by the horrible smell of burning hair.

“It lodged inside my helmet and, as we were retreating from the scene, I struggled to get it off.

“I’m very grateful to my colleagues on White Watch and the staff at the hospital for their medical treatment.

cars

“I’ll be honest, in the hours that followed I felt furious.

“But I soon calmed down and have actually stayed on shift all night – it’s my responsibility to be at work, protecting my local community.

“But the next time I’m called to an incident like a bonfire or other small fire in a public space I expect last night will be on my mind.”

Jim Wallace, chief fire officer for GMFRS, said this is ‘the last thing’ the service need at such a busy time of the year.

A number of residents also expressed their shock at group of youths taking ‘full buckets’ of sweets from outside their houses.

In Radcliffe, one resident said: “Three lads were banging on my door.

“I assumed they were children but they were teenagers.

“I had a bucket outside for the trick or treaters and they have stolen the bucket and run.

“They threw the bucket on the street and legged it, now the children have nothing.”

A Hazelhurst resident said a ‘couple of kids’ cleared out the whole bowls of sweets that she had left outside her house, before any of children had the chance to have some.

GMP have been contacted for a comment about the anti-social behaviour.

The truth about comedy writers’ rooms

Grubby banter, sexless flirting and the smell of pizza and ambition … writer Sarah Morgan reveals the funny business that goes on behind the scenes of your favourite shows

books

In the recent movie Late Night, Mindy Kaling plays a naive young comedy writer joining the writing team on a late-night US chat show. The staff are exclusively white, male, expensively educated and surly a running gag is that every one uses the womens restroom to defecate because no women work in the office. Kaling, as a perky diversity hire, shakes up the show and drags it into the 21st century. Its a wish fulfilment comedy: what would actually happen, with just one woman or person of colour in the room, is that the lads would carry on being sexist and racist but would then swivel their heads at her like ventriloquist dummies to check that she was cool with it.

US writers rooms have a feral romance to them, as seen in shows such as 30 Rock, which was inspired by Tina Feys real time as head writer on Saturday Night Live, when her male peers would pee into jars on their office window sill and call it sun tea. In the UK, were a little more embarrassed at the idea that comedy is written, and feel it should be hidden away, shamefully and quietly. (When a writing partner and I asked for an office at the BBC in which to write our radio series, we were grudgingly offered The Jill Dando room, an 8ft sq office in TV Centre featuring a King-Kong-at-the-window-scale mural of the tragically murdered TV personality. We laughed. Writers are horrible.)

Recently, ITV announced an initiative to aim for gender-balanced writing teams on its comedy shows, which came as a shock to some people who claim to passionately love comedy but dont know how it is made. People who think Morecambe and Wise came up with all their own material, and Angela Rippon just started doing all that mad stuff with her legs on the day. You know what though? Its sort of OK comedy writers feel deep down we are doing our job properly when you dont know were there, like God. No, not like God: we dont have that level of self-esteem. Were like people who pump out the toilets at music festivals. Thats it. Gag writers are like the portable loo people, quietly keeping your entertainment entertaining. We know that no one at home cares if Simon Cowell is being genuinely spontaneous, or if his quip about David Walliamss trousers was crafted by a sweaty nerd on a 600th of his salary. Were just happy to be in showbiz.

I love my job. Ive worked in more than 50 writers rooms, not including the shows I helped develop that never made it to air. Some days I pinch myself that Im being paid to laugh my head off. On Horrible Histories you get free lectures from historians its like being paid for school, only youre actively encouraged to make fun of the lesson afterwards. Some shows Ive proudly worked on for decades, some were just a fleeting engagement in a production company office that smelled of pizza and ambition. Food is vital to the workings of a writers room. If a producer offers to buy lunch, everyone will immediately order the most expensive thing possible, because comedy writers are tiny children, and also because you know a free lunch means you are working through lunch.

The job has changed a lot in 10 years, but some writers rooms do still feel loud and gladiatorial, as in Late Night. Often in the UK they are dominated by male Oxbridge-educated caucazoids (some of my best friends are male Oxbridge-educated caucazoids, etc, etc). Writers are generally sensitive and insecure. If you put us together in a room we will overcompensate like the advice given to someone on their first day of prison, punch the biggest bloke in the yard.

There was one pop-based panel show writers room so notoriously toxic, the survivors talk as though it has been entombed in concrete like Chernobyl. A half-formed idea would get cut short with a Thats shit or Not funny. The writers assistant would get sent out with a complicated sandwich order and a grave warning that the star would lose his shit if she got the order wrong. (Of course, the sandwich shop didnt exist. She was terrified! Lol!)

These rooms are raptor pits, according to Andy Riley, co-creator of Year of the Rabbit, who has compiled a glossary of writers room terms on his website How to Talk Comedy Writer. There is loads of secret lingo, such as Die-dia (from Kat Sadler), an idea that you feel dying in your mouth the second you start pitching. A bad room will crush a die-dia dead (thats not funny), a good room will toss it around a bit to see what other ideas it shakes out. A die-dia is from the same family as the bad version, which is a much derided term that a higher-up might use when pitching the shape of a joke, but not the joke itself. We need a funny reveal for what the dog is chewing. The bad version is a dildo? I dunno, youre the writers. Honestly, pitching the bad version is actually really useful, but its a thing that producers say so writers make fun of it. We dont often get to feel lofty.

Sam Bain, co-creator of Peep Show, says: Comedy writing rooms should be like improv Yes, and Rather than Thats shit. When a room is good, its heaven, a sort of sexless flirting where colleagues bat ideas back and forth and nothing is off-limits. A certain amount of inappropriateness is actually vital to the health of a room.

Executives who pop in can be startled by the filth and off-topic banter. Its our way of getting to know each other. Jason Hazeley, co-creator of Cunk on Britain, calls this doing scales the practice gags that warm you up for the real work. Ive also heard it called clearing the pipes or getting the poison out. Its not pleasant, but it is funny, if dead-baby jokes before 10am are your thing. Quite why were allowed to get away with this Im not sure, theres no other job where its expected that you need to be appalling before you can do your job properly. Sure Ill bring in this 747, but I just have to snap the legs off this heron first. Its my process.

When the Times Up movement hit Hollywood there was concern that some people wouldnt feel comfortable with the anything goes approach. There was a famous lawsuit where the writers assistant on Friends (the only female and person of colour in the room) sued because of the eye-wateringly inappropriate conversation among the chief writers (including speculations about a female cast members genitalia). The decision went in the shows favour, with the judge referring to the Friends room as a creative workplace focused on generating scripts for an adult-oriented comedy show featuring sexual themes.

Ive never felt unsafe or intimidated at work, but Ive been in situations where later Ive pondered the weird nature of my employment. There was a day in a small room where the head writer delivered a monologue about inserting Cadbury Mini Eggs in the non-traditional orifice of a lady friend. I didnt feel especially harassed (I almost certainly yes and-ed with egg puns) but I cant speak for the young woman whose job it was to sit and take notes all day. Crucially, Im not sure it was a super-productive way to write in-house sketches for the website of a luxury car brand.

While no one wants to think about how the sausage is made, its a fact that most shows have writers rooms panel shows, award shows, sketch shows, topical news shows, a chat show for a popular fake TV judge they are all team written. Though youd be forgiven for not knowing that if you look at the credits. Writers arent much of a thing in comedy, outside sitcoms. They are credited as programme associates (or additional material). Programme associates are the modest heroes thinking of funny captions for a photo of a puffin, or writing questions about Boris Johnsons hair, or coming up with sketch ideas a talk-show host could do based round a giant papier-mache vulva that had been commissioned by the production company for another show but didnt get used. (These are all things that have happened on programmes I have written on, sorry, been associated with.)

But the title may not be around for ever. The Writers Guild of Great Britain is starting a campaign to scrap positions such as programme associate and credit writers for their writing. Writers should always be credited as writers, says Gail Renard, former WGGB chair and member of the guilds comedy committee, or else they stand to lose their residuals, pension contributions, and other payments theyve rightly earned. Why should we be hidden in the shadows like some dark comedy secret?

Well, theres lots of reasons why comedy writers should be kept a dark dirty secret see above but a reluctance to give proper credit isnt one of them.

Late Night is showing in UK cinemas.
