President Donald Trump announced the great news today that Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was killed by U.S. Special Forces.


But some people just couldn’t say, “Great work” and celebrate the death of the world’s #1 terrorist.

Pete Souza is the former White House photographer for Barack Obama.

He has made it no secret that he dislikes President Donald Trump and has taken shots at him in the past.

But he sent out a fake news tweet that went everywhere quickly, suggesting that the picture showed Trump wasn’t in the White House when the action taken against Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi took place.


It has 15,000 retweets and over 38,000 likes as of this writing.

Media and Democrats immediately cried conspiracy, as Twitchy notes, spreading it further.




Democratic strategist:

Even Andrew Zimmern retweeted the fake story to his over a million followers.

Of course, Souza was wrong, as he later had to admit, that Trump was back in the White House before the raid and before the picture was taken.


But as with most fake news, you can see it got much less attention than the original false story. And people are still spreading the lie.

And most of the blue checks still have the false story up and haven’t taken it down, much less apologized for spreading the insanity.
