This is Donald Trump’s No. 1 Most Embarrassing Photo He Probably Wishes Never Happened
The President of the United States is one of the most photographed people in the world. He is expected to look professional, poised, and in control, at all times lest the media have a field day.
It’s tough to be on your picture game 24/7, as these embarrassing photos of President Donald Trump prove. The 45th POTUS has had his fair share of slip-ups … plus his No. 1 most embarrassing photo that he probably wishes never happened (page 9).
9. ‘I can smell Hillary from here’
Donald and Melania hosted a State Dinner for French President Emmanuel Macron and French first lady Brigitte Macron. The two-day official visit included dinner at Mount Vernon, tree planting on the South Lawn, and a joint news conference.
Their burdening friendship sparked rumors of a “bromance,” yet Trump didn’t look too happy as he waited for the Macrons alongside Melania. In fact, he looked as if he smelled something he found repulsive.

8. Air Force of nature
Trump returned to Washington, DC after holding a rally in Washington, Michigan rife with controversial quotes. He may have escaped air turbulence but it was nothing compared to what was waiting for him on the ground.
Trump stepped off Air Force One at the Andrews Air Force Base to a gust of wind so large it blew both his umbrella and parts of his hair sideways. Luckily, a photographer was on hand to catch the off-guard moment.

7. Billions and billions and billions
The president-to-be used grandiose gestures on his campaign trail to excite voters during his rallies. The pictured rally at the University of Central Florida was no different … except that he may wish this photo never made the cut. It’s O.K., Trump. We doubt billions and billions of people have seen it.
Trump relayed to his 10,000 supporters the importance of voting in the winner-take-all Florida primary. “Remember, you all swore you would vote for Trump!” he exclaimed. “You can’t change!”

6. Pageant queen
Trump arrived at the 2012 Miss Universe Pageant in Las Vegas, but he didn’t appear too happy about it. A photographer caught him mid-yell, though it remains a mystery who was the recipient of his fury.
Trump owned the Miss Universe Organization and its sister programs for nearly two decades. He was forced to sell in 2015 after he drove away various broadcasters with offensive comments about Hispanic viewers.
Next: They went mad for The Donald.
5. ‘I think I’ve got their vote’
It’s customary for politicians to shake hands and kiss babies, but we doubt these babies’ reactions were what Trump had in mind when he ran for president. The then-Republican candidate for president gave a 2016 campaign speech at the University of Colorado and followed the speech by greeting fans … and holding their children, who proceeded to cry in his arms.
Next: Speak loudly and carry a big recorder.
4. Did you get that?
Long ago, before leaving the Iran nuclear deal became a dangerous reality, Trump and fellow Republican Ted Cruz rallied against the deal at Capitol Hill. Trump graced journalists with an interview on the West Lawn in 2015, while one photojournalist caught him yelling into a tape recorder and cell phone.
Next: Some father-son bonding.
3. ‘Barron loves this face!’
The first couple’s son Barron made a rare appearance at the Republican National Convention in 2016. While Barron looked on over the crowd, Donald made the dramatic gesture shown above … likely to talk about the huge crowd size.
To be fair, an estimated 50,000 people showed up in Cleveland, Ohio for the RNC. The number included Republican party members, the media, and hundreds of protestors.
Next: Power points galore.
2. Point guard
If Trump looks like he’s about to scream, it only because he is. The first presidential debate saw Trump lose his cool multiple times, despite expectations he’d adopt a calm demeanor for the campaign.
Hillary Clinton and Trump argued over emails, tax returns, and Barack Obama’s birth certificate. Meanwhile, a photographer managed to capture this squinty-eyed photo for public amusement.
Next: Donald’s hair deserves its own article.
1. Gone with the wind
It’s a bird… it’s a plane… it’s the president’s hair. Trump’s blonde mop has grown famous of its own accord, and photographers everywhere have capitalized on the opportunity to photograph the president in the wind in an effort to catch it go awry.
The photographer who captured the most embarrassing photo of the president’s hair caught him when he was president-elect. Trump was en route to his plane to visit the Carrier air conditioning and heating company in Indianapolis.
