As Twitchy reported, the White House on Sunday released a photo of President Trump and top U.S. brass in the Situation Room as the raid that killed ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi was taking place.

President Obama’s official photographer, Pete Souza, weighed in with a tweet suggesting that the photo was staged after looking at the metadata of the picture and comparing it to the timing of the raid. That tweet earned more than 58,000 likes; way more than the tweet Souza followed up with, correcting his mistake:

So everyone going with the false narrative that Souza helped promote believes that Trump was golfing while the raid went down and the photo was staged. As you can see, Souza himself corrected his own tweet early Sunday afternoon, so there’s no reason (other than TDS) for Jimmy Kimmel to claim in his monologue Monday night that Trump was on the golf course at the time.

Jimmy Kimmel should retract his lie. Will he? Of course not — why would he? It would spoil the “comedy.”

Maybe CNN’s Reliable Sources newsletter will call out Kimmel for spreading disinformation.
