Morrison is at the centre of Australia's first political meme of 2019 after a Photoshop fail

An image of Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison has gone viral thanks to some terrible editing.

A photo of Morrison and his family, which was posted on his official website but has since been removed, appeared to show a poorly executed attempt to replace the PM’s sneakers with whiter shoes.

To make matters worse, a left shoe was Photoshopped onto the PM’s right foot.

Memes of the blunter have since ignited Twitter:

Morrison responded to the gaffe on Wednesday morning saying, “I didn’t ask for the shoeshine, but if you must Photoshop, please focus on the hair (lack thereof), not the feet!”

He also posted a photo of his “footwear of choice”.
