Viral picture of Obama in Houston is missing one crucial bit of information
A photograph has been going viral over the internet of former President Obama and his family.
They were working hard in Houston serving out food for victims of Hurricane Harvey. Except there is just one MAJOR issue with the picture…
Can you spot it??
The photo is from Thanksgiving Day 2015, and the Obamas are not serving food for victims of Harvey in Houston.
The original tweet was posted Saturday with the caption: “Something you’ll never see trump do: Obama is in Texas serving meals!”
Then later removed when a poster was informed he was incorrect, after he had already received tons of shares.
WOW! Now that’s a new all time low…
According to allenbwest:
If the short time Trump has been in office has made one thing clear, it’s that liberals will find pretty much any reason to attack him. Forget the important issues facing our country, why did it take so long for Trump’s young son to move into the White House? Disregard that North Korea is threatening nuclear war, why does Trump play so much golf?
At this point, it’s clear liberals don’t have a memory spanning more than a few years. If they did, they’d remember that it wasn’t long ago they were defending Obama for his love of all things golf. To them, nothing Trump does will ever allow him to measure up to Obama.
Knowing that, it should come as no surprise that even as Trump was on his way to Texas, liberals were blasting him for his response to Harvey. Even worse, they began circulating a picture of Obama serving food to victims.
However, there was a major problem with the narrative.
From Bizpac Review:
When it comes to the gullibility of the average social media user, it’s not surprising to see fake news spread like the wind.
A recent example of this was a photo of former President Barack Obama allegedly serving food in Texas, which continues to feel the catastrophic effects of Hurricane Harvey.
The caption stated, “Something you’ll never see Trump do: Obama is in Texas serving meals!”
So, what’s wrong with that? Liberals proved their lack of memory span, since the picture dates back to 2015:
The problem is, the photo is from 2015 of the then-first family serving Thanksgiving dinner at a homeless shelter.
An account under the name Aiden Benjamin — described as a “parody account for laughs” under the profile — tweeted the photo, before later deleting it and offering an apology.

Predictably, conservatives on Twitter had a field day with the picture:

O was nowhere to be seen during 8/16 historic floods Baton Rouge. No HRC. Only Trump came to give $$ & hand out supplies. #MAGA

Next the liberal fake media will use a Obama vacation photo at a swimming pool to suggest he even rescued drowning hurricane victims!

It just goes to show liberals will attack Trump for anything, and this time, it came back to bite them.
