Sarah Huckabee Sanders Just Tweeted A Photo That Has Twitter Crying Foul

On Friday, the U.S. bombed Syria in response to a chemical weapons attack allegedly carried out by Bashar al-Assad’s government. The bombing was coordinated with the U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May and French President Emmanuel Macron. 

Yesterday, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders tweeted a photo allegedly showing President Trump being briefed on the situation in Syria.

There was one problem with the photo, however. Vice President Pence, who is in the picture, is currently in South America. On Friday, he was visiting Lima, Peru, for the Summit of the Americas, meaning that this picture could not have been from the night of the bombing.

This was a fact that Alex Singer was quick to point out on Twitter:

People wondered if some weird science was allowing the VP to be in two places at once:

Others started analyzing who was in the room and what that meant:

Technically, Sanders didn’t say the photo was from Friday night:

But why post the photo if she wasn’t trying to pass it off as the night of the bombing?

And the exact phrasing of what Sanders said didn’t seem to matter:

Lying is so commonplace in this administration that people will always be ready to believe that Trump’s White House is being dishonest.
