Official portrait of Melania is out ... and Twitter is abuzz

The official portrait of the new First Lady is out in the US and it is causing quite a buzz on social media sites.

The photograph is now on the official website of the White House along with details about the life of the 46-year-old ex-model who was born in Slovenia.

It was probably to be expected that people on Twitter would have their own take on the official portrait.

One Tweet mixed the portrait up with a recently unveiled bust of Ronaldo, an image that many said looked nothing like the football legend.

“The new heroine of Netflix,” said another.

Someone else has used a Chinese app to transform the photo.

Another Tweet, with a skeleton in front of a computer screen, says: “When you’ve finished photoshopping Melania Trump.”
