Reports Say Trump Was Golfing When ISIS Raid Occurred, Photo Staged Later

So, now this has become a “thing.”

I’m certain Donald Trump is living for the photo above. He’s always wanted to look ‘tough.’

The interesting thing is it’s marked on the White House Flickr account as “President Trump Watches as U.S. Special Operations Forces Close in on ISIS Leader.”

The raid was reported to have taken place at 3:30pm Washington time. But Pete Souza, a White House photographer under Presidents Reagan and Obama notes the camera’s IPTC data indicates the photo was taken at 17:05:24. That would be 5:05pm – over an hour and a half AFTER the raid occurred.

Plus, White House reports show Trump was at his golf course at 3:30pm, not in the Situation Room…?

So, was this photo staged after the fact? If so, why?
