OMG: Leftist Media Now Proposing Conspiracy Theories That the White House Photoshopped a Picture of Trump to Make His Hands Appear Bigger

Update: Here are the (now deleted) Tweets which proposed this lunatic conspiracy theory.

Here is the debunking.

Philip Bump -- of "What about your gaaaaffes?" infamy -- is actually forced into the position of being the voice of reason and debunking his fellow leftists.

The picture shown on ABC isn't even the picture on the White House wall. Rather than photographing the picture on the wall (taking a picture of the picture), they simply edited in the original photo into the broadcast, to illustrate the photo Trump was talking about.

Here's the video I mean -- the photo of Trump touching Obama on the shoulder was not photographed in the White House at all. It was added into the report from ABCNews' own Getty Images collection.

Thus, the Internet Detectives are actually claiming Trump photoshopped a picture in ABCNews' possession.


Even putting that aside (and that's a lot to put aside), a Rathergate style GIF shows the picture shown on ABCNews is the same photo from the Getty Collection.

The hand size matches, like the Rathergate fonts.

At some point, the alcoholics will have to admit they have a problem with alcohol.

While the National Laughingstock does debunk this, note what they're not doing -- reading the woman who made up this ridiculous conspiracy theory out of polite society, along with the thousands who eagerly retweeted it. (Many of whom were in the media, I'll bet -- but I can't know for sure, as the original tweet is now deleted.)
