Fake news abounds in this country, and sadly, even more so right now during the tragedy of Hurricane Harvey. Obama is currently going viral on social media for his supposed presence in Texas to help the victims. There are photos of him in soup kitchens being retweeted like crazy. The problem is that all of them are fake as far as being connected in any way to Hurricane Harvey.
Obama did nothing for Texas recently other than send out a tweet.
According to USA Newsflash :
President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania without a doubt set an example of how the leader of a nation should take charge and action in times of crisis, and now, since the liberals couldn’t find a single thing to criticize his action for, they have gone as low as to attack Melania for her heels, in the midst of a situation where the focus of our nation should be at the suffering people. And now, the ranting of the liberal continues as they have come forward with yet another ridiculous talking point against the president, criticizing him for not hugging anyone in Texas during his visit.
Obama focused on the people suffering in the crowd not the size of the crowd. https://t.co/ohIN9wOFp9

The talking point was tweeted out by Former Barack Obama aide Ben Rhodes, the man known for taking part in the whole Benghazi and Iran Deal.
But this liberal seems to have forgotten one small fact about this picture. Not only was the photograph taken nine days after Hurricane Sandy, which is already considered late to visit the victims after several days, but the photograph dates from October 31, 2012, during the Obama’s re-run for president, when the polls revealed that he was tight with Mitt Romney. In other words, the photograph was just a ‘photo op’ for his election, since we both saw that when there was no election in 2015, former First Lady Michelle Obama didn’t even bother to step out of the White House to visit the people.
Other news-sites have also become enraged by pictures of Obama being spread around claiming he is in Texas and helping when the photos are clearly traceable to other situations in other states.
According to Freedom Daily :
Prissy Holly from Freedom Daily first revealed the truth behind what Obama came forward and said this morning. She pointed out that it’s not ironic that he’s suddenly sad for flood victims after completely avoiding the same disaster that took place in Louisiana his last term in office.
“To adequately paint the picture of Obama’s disgusting antics, let’s take a quick rewind back in history. In August of last year, while Obama was in office, prolonged rainfall resulted in catastrophic flooding across the state of Louisiana that submerged thousands of houses and businesses, leaving 40,000 Louisiana residents completely homeless,” Prissy Holly initially pointed out.
“Louisiana’s Governor, John Bel Edwards, called the disaster a “historic, unprecedented flooding event,”declaring a state of emergency for the floods that tragically took the lives of 13 people.”
“The good, hard-working people of Louisiana waited and waited to hear their president extend his condolences and pay their suffering community a visit. But Obama was nowhere to be found. The plight of suffering Louisiana was the last thing on Obama’s list of priorities, as he continued to whack golf balls and vacation at his exclusive posh resort.”
His sudden show of compassion for flood victims was because of the opportunity he saw to beat Trump to it and reclaim the presidential spotlight he so desperately misses. Although it’s easy to see how insincere he is, in this sudden show of sympathy, a photo used to coincide with his condolences was the final nail in his coffin that contains whatever was left of his reputation.
Liberals jumped all over Obama’s supposed outreach with “photo proof” of what a “real president looks like.” They fell hook line and sinker for the bait he threw at them to help him in his cause of making Trump look bad, but it backfired even worse than his initial message today did.
Democrats are really easy to dupe, especially when they see an opportunity to throw Trump under the bus.
Shortly after Obama’s Twitter message thanking first responders in Texas for helping Americans, a picture of him emerged showing him allegedly serving food in Houston to victims at a homeless shelter.
Photo that went viral of Barack Obama
It looked great and felt even better to liberals desperate for something to shove in the faces of every Trump supporter for why Obama is better than he is. The caption even proved that point with the original poster saying, “something you’ll never see trump do: Obama is in Texas serving meals!”
What’s funny, or perhaps sad, if we’re talking about how incredibly gullible/desperate liberals are, is that by blasting this picture they proved the opposite point they thought they were making. “The internet never fails to politicize natural disasters and troll President Trump,” the Daily Caller pointed out in explaining that the viral picture of Obama allegedly helping Hurricain Harvey victims wasn’t taken in Texas and wasn’t even taken this year.
“This photo of Obama was actually from 2015 when he was serving Thanksgiving dinner at a homeless shelter,” the news site pointed out. “The tweet had enough time to go viral, however, receiving close to 15,000 likes and almost 8,000 retweets today.”
Obama does a whole lot of nothing during natural disasters other than show up after the fact and get as many photo-ops as possible. This time is no different. If he shows up in Texas at all, it will be a long time from now, and he will come bearing nothing but his ego.
