Donald Trump Fans Think POTUS Conserved A Drowning Cat From Typhoon Harvey– Twitter Meme Fools Fans

While Donald Trump’s reaction to Hurricane Harvey was extensively slammed for cannot show empathy with the hurricane’s victims, and focusing on the supposed size of the crowd that turned out to see him when he appeared not in Houston where the typhoon his hardest, but in Corpus Christi, Texas, some Trump advocates required to Twitter to safeguard the man they state is “Making America Great Again”– and blast the media for allegedly neglecting Trump’s excellent deeds throughout the typhoon action effort.In truth, it

now appears that some Trump supporters on the social media platform Twitter think that Trump personally waded into floodwaters and rescued a drowning feline, circulating a photo allegedly showing Trump waist-deep in water with two waterlogged housecats in his arms.The picture

was published on Twitter with the caption, “Things the media forgets.” In the photo, Trump uses among his trademark “Make America Great Again” red baseball caps– but as other Twitter users rapidly noted, Trump’s head was simply, and crudely, pasted on another guy’s body using digital image modifying software application such as Photoshop.In reality, as the

rumor-checking< a href=http://www.snopes.com/trump-saved-two-cats-after-hurricane-harvey/ > website Snopes.com found, the picture of”Trump” was not even taken during Hurricane Harvey. Or perhaps in Houston. And even in this decade.According to Snopes, the photo was snapped

in 2008 , during a flood in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. An article from 2009 in the Des Moines Register newspaper, determined the man as Brandon Smith, who was in the procedure of eliminating his 2 family animals from his flooding home when the picture was taken.Whoever developed the Twitter meme not did anything more than digitally paste Trump

‘s face over Smith’s, leaving the remainder of the image unaltered.Trump Citizens believing Trump saved felines throughout Harvey is almost as embarrassing as when they thought Obama

was POTUS throughout Katrina. pic.twitter.com/kMvhPkuczV!.?.!But that apparently didn’t stop some Trump fans from falling for the fake meme, at least according to Twitter users who had lots of enjoyable buffooning the Trump fans.And the stomach is method too small.And the”Trump conserving cats”meme wasn’t even the only fake picture that circulated throughout the hurricane. One doctored image purported to show Trump helping in the rescue of a human being, which likewise drew ridicule on Twitter.The meme of Trump saving a cat, or two felines, wasn’t the very first misconception that

his supporters circulated throughout Hurricane Harvey. Another meme went viral on Twitter and other social media outlets blasting President Barack Obama for his supposed lack of action to Typhoon Katrina in 2005. Obama was a Senator from Illinois in 2005 and did not become president up until 2009. [Featured Image by Susan Walsh/AP Images]
