Another day, another delusion from the White House, set forth for the purpose of gaslighting the American people. Obama photographer Pete Souza compared the time stamp of the photo of the Serious White Men that Dan Scavino tweeted out, and the actual time of the al-Bahgdadi raid. The raid, as reported, took place at 3:30PM Washington time. The photo, as shown in the camera IPTC data, was taken at "17:05:24". https://t.co/XV0MFfFiTt — Pete Souza (@PeteSouza) October 27, 2019 It was asked on Twitter if they all could have been there two hours later. “Sure, it’s possible,” Souza replied. However, there’s another tell, other than the time stamp, to let you know this photo is a phony. They’re all staring into the camera, which in a real war room situation, is not the case. Souza’s war room photographs are taken from a fly-on-the-wall perspective. Here’s an example. The propaganda never ends with the Trump admin. For those who need to cleanse their eyes with a picture that wasn't staged … pic.twitter.com/Pj3nwDHisO — Denise Shearin (@DeniseShearin) October 27, 2019 Above is the Osama bin Laden moment that Trump is desperately trying to create for himself. The Baghdadi raid reportedly took place yesterday at 3:30PM EST. According to yesterday's pool report, Trump and crew didn't leave Trump National Golf Club until 3:30PM EST. So, as Pete Souza points out, the Trump "war room" photo tweeted by @DanScavino was clearly staged. pic.twitter.com/aUKBzSN4sL — Avi Bueno (@Avi_Bueno) October 27, 2019 Additionally, the subsequent pool report indicates they didn't return to the White House until 4:18PM, at which point "Trump was spotted walking in wearing navy blue pullover and red cap". pic.twitter.com/C6cFJWH7jB — Avi Bueno (@Avi_Bueno) October 27, 2019 Personally, I like the unconnected cables a lot. Nice touch. I used to work on B-movies as a young woman and we weren’t that sloppy — but I can well believe that the White House is less professional than a non-union no-budget crew. But we know that Trump only employs the “best people” and that includes IT, right? So, this has to be the real thing. Right??? The orange one in the center (cable, not person) is my favorite. I fantasize that it’s the cable that Putin attaches to Trump to keep the big blowhard pumped up and lying. Or maybe it’s the equivalent of a shock collar, and Putin wants Trump to have it in sight at all times, to remind him who’s boss. Sweet Jesus, where do we go from here? What’s down wind of faking a war room photo? What can possibly stink worse than this? Iconic. The sign & grin photo-op 45th so-called president of the US. All dressed up for Halloween with ‘his generals’; pitifully still trying to best @BarackObama. Never. Trump: Always Queens. Never Manhattan. — Plmnmo (@Plmnmo) October 27, 2019 Poets have said, maybe life is but a dream. I don’t know about that, but I do know that the Trump administration is nothing.but.a.sham/scam.
Sometimes people in Washington get it plain wrong!
If conservatives support police killing citizens without justification, climate denial, fact denial, science denial, racist and misogynistic behavior, or a litany of other absurd points of view about numerous important issues, we call them out.
