Hands down Pence's photo is better. I saw a review of this on my facebook feed from FroKnowsPhoto's Jared Pollen (spelling?). He does a pretty good job explaining why it's a junk photo of President Trump.

Pence obviously respects the flag more, he's wearing red, white and blue!

To me, Pence's looks better in terms of lighting, background, and his smile looks more relaxed. Overall, I would kind of expect better for an official presidential portrait. However, I imagine these guys are busy -- I don't expect the process is like an all day Annie Leibovitz cover shoot.

Completely agree...

Trump looks like he just swallowed the first amendment, and Pence looks like someone you might trust in a horror film, but probably shouldn't.

I don't want to look at either one of those people.

Lol. The comedic value that these photos has stirred up around social media and whatnot is so good.

Best comment of the day! Thanks for making me giggle.

I'm retracting my previous statement that the photographer who did Vice President Pence's photo did a better job...

Trump isn't so orange in his shot... Given his skin tone I'd actually have to say the photographer did a hell of a job... Lol.

OMG yes! .... and the exif being stripped from the President's photo is definitely the kicker.

My chiropractor commissioned this poster -- fortunately I was able to snag the original "Official Presidential Portrait" before this latest update ... the good thing about those official portraits is they are in the public domain -- feel free to add "Groucho Glasses" if you want. :-)

Trump's has the crooked edge of a picture frame on the right of the image and the shoulder fall off. And, what is with that wallpaper? However, it is head and shoulders over his first presidential photo, so I suppose there is progress. Image included in the meme on GeneralE's post here. And unless the WHite House is replete with flags draped identically, with Pence, at least they put up blue seamless behind him.

So, in a basket of deplorables choice, I'd say Pence.
