The White House released a photograph of President. Obama shooting skeet up at Camp David, and immediately, the skeptics poured out of the woodwork. Was it a coincidence that the photograph was released right in the middle of the gun debate, showing that the president was gun owner himself? Then to increase the skepticism, the White House issued a statement, printed below, saying that there should be absolutely no photo shopping of the president in shooting attire. Good luck! The photos started appearing on the Internet almost immediately. You can see just a few shown below.
“This official White House photograph is being made available only for publication by news organizations and/or for personal use printing by the subject(s) of the photograph,” the White House statement read. “The photography may not be manipulated in any way and may not be used in commercial or political materials, advertisements, emails, products, promotions that in any way suggest approval or endorsement of the President, the First Family, or the White House.”
Almost immediately, an assortment of Photo shopped and variously captioned images sprouted up online, poking fun at the president.
