Kazakhstan Gets Caught Photoshopping Official Photos Of Its New Leader

The country of Kazakhstan was just caught photoshopping official photos of its new leader, and the evidence is overwhelming. It’s clear that beauty retouching techniques dramatically altered his appearance. Radio Free Europe/Radio Liberty made the discovery when comparing government-released photos with other pictures captured at the same place and time by ordinary journalists

In March, Kazakhstan interim president, Kassym-Jomart Tokayev took over as leader after longtime President Nursultan Nazarbaev unexpectedly resigned. To many, this came as a surprise. Known as “Papa” to many Kazakhs, the 78-year-old former steel worker and Communist party apparatchik, Nazarbaev has ruled the vast oil and gas-rich nation since 1989, when it was still part of the Soviet Union.

It might be that the aim of this Photoshop campaign is to nip, tuck, and smooth the 65-year-old ex-diplomat and former prime minister’s appearance in preparation for the snap presidential election the country is having in June.

An expert told the RFE/RL that he was “almost 100 percent” certain Toqaev’s photos have been photoshopped in an attempt to change his appearance.​ “One of the world’s leading retouchers, who asked to remain anonymous, [said] he believed the picture had been altered ‘mainly using surface blur to even out the skin of the face.’”

“You can see it’s uneven when looking closely at the face,” he added. “Some parts contain jpeg artifacts and some parts are smoother. I work with this every day, and it looks like it’s definitely been smoothed out.”

After This Woman Asked Her Mom To Take Care Of Her Plants, Her Mom Pretended To Be A ‘Grandplantrent’

While many people usually ask their neighbors and friends to take care of their pets and plants while they are away, most moms are more than happy to do it. They don’t hesitate to lend a helping hand, especially if it gives them an opportunity to gently intervene in their children’s lives.

When Regan asked her mother to take care of her plants, she definitely didn’t expect her to treat them like children

When Regan Speyer asked her mother to watch over her plants for a bit, her mother couldn’t miss a wonderful opportunity to troll her own daughter and happily proclaimed herself as a “grandplantrent”.

As any caring “grandplantparent” would do, she took good care of all of Regan’s plant babies. Proud grandma gathered the plants in the living room to watch tv, took them for a ride in a baby stroller and even read a book to them.

And if that’s not enough, she even filmed the plant going down the slide!

After Reagan posted these adorable photos on Twitter, they quickly went viral and gathered as many as 110k reblogs and 441 likes.

While most of the users had a good laugh about the excellent trolling, some began to suspect something. They believe that Reagan’s mom took the opportunity to drop a subtle hint, that she would like to have grandchildren soon. And what’s a more subtle way to do it, than to show what a great grandma she would be.
