First Lady of the United States Melania Trump managed to puzzle social media users with a rare selfie she released on New Year’s Eve.
The first lady posted a photo of herself on both her Twitter and Instagram accounts, “wishing everyone a Happy, Healthy, Peaceful and Prosperous New Year!”
A number of people noticed however that the photo originally featured another person, likely Donald and Melania’s 12-year old son Barron, who was apparently cropped out of the picture before it was posted on social media.
Wait, did Melania just crop a child out of her New Years selfie? https://t.co/BT1RiGsqW1— Snarkian (@ianwilrel8) 1 января 2019 г.
Is that Baron? That’d be a super cute picture if he wasn’t cut out. Frameworthy even…— Kir Lister (@kirann18) 2 января 2019 г.
This development left some wondering why Melania would do such a thing.
I dunno but great pains were taken to crop the child out of the image. Basic face-tune Melania is not how I wanted to start 2019.— Brian Dobrzynski (@BrianMitchelD) 1 января 2019 г.
Why did you crop out your child?— Aliya Karimi (@AliyaKarimi) 1 января 2019 г.
Others however opted to ignore this mystery and simply wished her Happy New Year.

Others used this opportunity to launch more personal attacks against the first lady.
