Trump-haters gleefully share photo of Obama helping hurricane victims in Texas, until they realize …

When it comes to the gullibility of the average social media user, it’s not surprising to see fake news spread like the wind.

A recent example of this was a photo of former President Barack Obama allegedly serving food in Texas, which continues to feel the catastrophic effects of Hurricane Harvey.

The caption stated, “Something you’ll never see trump do: Obama is in Texas serving meals!”

The problem is, the photo is from 2015 of the then-first family serving Thanksgiving dinner at a homeless shelter.

An account under the name Aiden Benjamin — described as a “parody account for laughs” under the profile — tweeted the photo, before later deleting it and offering an apology.

With Americans seemingly bored out of their minds, spreading false information is as easy as a PhotoShop app and a social media account.

An example of this is another Harvey-related photo making the rounds that features a SHARK superimposed on a flooded Texas freeway — it has been shared almost 59,000 times.

Thankfully, there are still a few adept social media users out there who can spot a fugazi… here’s a sampling of responses to the Obama photo from Twitter:
