Photoshop is a wonderful thing

Until it’s used for evil. Okay, not evil… but seriously, in this day and age of Photoshop, and other photo-editing programs, it’s way too easy to spread misinformation by recreating stories into their own reality. For example, this came across my Facespace the other day:

Not Drumpf… So ‘shopped.

 

And, let me tell you something, dear readers, anyone who thinks that’s Lord Dampnut’s body is just stupid. Yeah, I said it, stupid.  Even in his best years, he never had a body like that. Ever.  Also, just look at the weird neck… I mean… what’s up with that? That’s not him. Never was, never will be.  Someone edited his face onto an old photo and spread it around trying to bring good will to a sad, sad man.  For reference, here is a contemporary photo of our good president:

Snopes.com will set the story straight.   While Snopes is not the be all and end all of refuting bad recreations, it’s a good place to start. I find it ironic, really, that the people screaming about “fake news” go out of their way to create it — and it such a way that’s so easily refuted. It’s laughable really. And so very, very sad.

    Dampnuts? BWAHAHAHAHAHAH!!! Oh my … thanks for the belly laugh. I know (without Snopes..although I agree with YOU about it being a great source to verify ‘news’) that isn’t Dump. There’s nothing ‘tweetable’ about the moment, it’s someone doing something absolutely selfless. Dump couldn’t begin to understand that kind of thinking, let alone DO it. Fie on the photoshopper for trying to get us to believe Dump would ever be altruistic. There’s no profit to him in such things.
