This Photo Of The Media Reflected In Trump’s Eyes Is Wowing The Web

Associated Press photographer Pablo Martinez Monsiváis was just doing his job Wednesday when he took a picture of President Donald Trump at a press conference on the South Lawn of the White House.

It’s that picture, however, that has captured the attention of social media users this week with many describing it as beautiful.

Taken before Trump boarded Marine One, the photograph depicts Trump’s eyes in clear detail with an image of the media reflected back.

Monsiváis posted an edited version of the photo on his Twitter account.

The photograph has received lots of praise and somewhat mixed reactions on social media as expected anyway.

Some have pointed out the symbolic nature of the photograph, as it comes at a time when the president has repeatedly suggested that the media is the “enemy of the people.”
