- Democrats Scramble to APOLOGIZE After Comparing Bible-Holding Trump to Hitler (But Only for Sharing Doctored Pic)
Liberals have denounced President Donald Trump’s photo-op with a Bible, rushing to compare him to Adolf Hitler. Many were left red-faced after the photo they used turned out to be fake.
The latest fake-news fest on social media was triggered by the US president’s controversial walk to St. John’s Church on Monday. The historic Washington DC church near the White House was damaged by a group of rioters the night before. Trump’s move was preceded by a sweeping police clean-up of the area, in which both protesters and journalists got caught up.
The scenes stirred up a storm of online reactions – but a photo of Trump posing with a Bible next to the church as if to make a statement to the protesters eclipsed all of the above. Not content with simply bashing Trump for alleged police heavy-handedness, the liberals proceeded to read into the stunt’s meaning.
The Hitler/Bible going around is Photoshopped. That so many people (including me initially) fell for it, is itself an indictment of Trump and all he stands for.

I just deleted a picture of Hitler that I learned was photo shopped. I apologize. Too much coffee.

The Hitler photo being shared to resemble @realDonaldTrump is fake. It's photoshopped. This is easily debunked. How many on the Trump-hating left will fall for this #FakeNews? How many already have? How is this helpful?
