A mum has become the butt of jokes among her friends – after they claimed to have spotted Donald Trump’s face in a photograph of her KNEE.

Pals noticed the uncanny resemblance in a picture of Jamie Lee Mitchell taken by her best mate Sarah-Jayne McCall before a girls’ night out.

And now 21-year-old Jamie Lee is being taunted with the nickname Jamie KNEE after the snap was shared on social media.

Sarah-Jayne said nobody spotted the outline of US President when the picture was taken before Christmas, but it jumped out at her when scrolling past it again on her phone last week.


Mum-of-one Jamie Lee, from Edinburgh, said: “I was mortified when she pointed it out. Everyone is calling me Jamie Knee now.

“Sarah-Jayne sent me it and I just burst out laughing and thinking: ‘What the f**k?’.

“Nobody has ever mentioned it before but then again nobody was really looking for it either.

“Now everyone has had a laugh about it. It got posted on Facebook and all of a sudden I’ve got people calling me Jamie Knee.

“I can see what they mean. I think it’s just the way it was taken though, the way the angle and the light combined.

“Since this was taken he’s become President though, so it’s a much more famous knee than it was a few months ago.”

The picture was taken at Sarah-Jayne’s Edinburgh flat last year before the pair went out into the city for the evening.


The face – complete with eyes, nose, cheek, and hair – can clearly be seen on Jamie Lee’s right knee.

President Trump’s mother, Mary Anne MacLeod, was born and brought up on the Hebridean island of Lewis, while the newly-elected leader of the free world also owns a golf course and estate in Balmedie, Aberdeenshire.

Sarah-Jayne, also 21, said: “I think it looks exactly like him. I couldn’t stop laughing when I noticed.

“It was the only picture we took that night as well and I’m so glad I did. I think it’s hilarious.

“I took a screenshot of it straight away and sent it to her. Before you know it, half of Edinburgh has seen it on Facebook.

“We don’t really pay that much attention to American politics but I personally quite like Trump.

“He’s not appeared in any photos we’ve taken since and she’s had quite a bit of banter about it, but it’s all good fun.”
