The First Lady (FLOTUS) shared the snap with the caption: “Wishing everyone a Happy, Healthy, Peaceful and Prosperous New Year!” But eagle-eyed Twitter users were quick to notice Mrs Trump had cropped someone out of the image, leading them to speculate who the individual was. At first glance, the image appears to show the First Lady alone.
But the bottom right-hand corner of the black and white image shows a human eyeball, which appears to belong to a young child.
The most likely explanation is that eye in the corner of the photo belongs to Barron, Donald and Melania Trump’s 12-year-old son.
The mystery person seems unaware they were soon to be cropped out of the photo before FLOTUS posted it to her millions of social media fans.
Mrs Trump’s apparent “snub” caused bewildered Twitter users to take to the platform to question her decision to remove her child from the image.
