A photo tweeted by the White House on First Lady Melania Trump's birthday has raised many an eyebrow on social media.
The tweet that has generated more than 8,000 comments, simply says "Happy Birthday, @FLOTUS!" and is accompanied by a photo of Mrs. Trump sitting alone on the far end of a couch and staring into the distance, surrounded by an army of photographers and reporters in the Oval Office. Mrs. Trump turned 49 on Friday.
The photo has spawned numerous memes but also questions from some Twitter users about why the White House chose to share a photo in which the first lady looks "all alone" on her birthday.
"Where are her child and husband?" one tweet said in response to the photo.
"I don’t understand why the White House would post such a sad, lonely photo of Melania for her birthday," another Twitter user said. "Regardless what I think of her and her family, this is just weird."
