Default President Trump's smiles

I have often defended President Trump--he is frequently the object of scurrilous (and baseless) charges by the left wing (who still cannot accept that he is actually president)--but I do have to wonder just why he can manage no more than a sort of half-smile (in fact, almost a smirk).

Have others noticed this also?

some people dont smile a lot but are nevertheless quite happy. I am told to smile all the time and I try but it doesnt come out a smile in most pictures.

A better question is how much amphetamines does he snort each day? Look at his eyes in photos, fully dilated most of the time.

You're a fool if you don't know how easily one's surroundings can effect the eyes.
Try again.

I'd hardly call any of the following a smirk/half smile.

Personally, I don’t understand how any rational person can look at him and not be totally repulsed. He is a genuinely vile human being. You couldn’t write fiction with a president this horrific because it would be rejected by an editor as too unreaslistic.

The first of these three qualifies as the sort of smirk that I meant.

The last two, well, not so much.

A number of people I know who were dentures, have a tendency to limit their smiling, self conscious? I don't know if Trump has dentures or not.

Some people also feel that smiling means people won't take them seriously (that from a relative who has esteem issues)

yeah, completely brightly lit room...and full dilated pupils???. with bright camera lights (or even routine, ambient, indoor lighting), we would expect anyone's pupils to be much smaller.






and theres tons of images out there. tRump is so obviously abusing drugs, only fools like you ignore the evidence.
