Dems Under Fire for ‘Childish Crop Job’ Cutting Melania Trump out of Viral Barbara Bush Funeral Photo

Democrats in Lubbock, Texas, are facing backlash from social media users after cropping first lady Melania Trump out of a now-viral photo from former first lady Barbara Bush’s funeral and sharing it on the party’s Facebook page.

The original photo features Trump alongside former Presidents George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama as well as former first ladies Hillary Clinton, Laura Bush and Michelle Obama. However, the group’s version suspiciously cut Trump out:

After facing a plethora of negative comments, party officials said the cropping was unintentional. The edited photo has since been deleted and replaced with the original. Party leaders issued the following apology:

I apologize for the confusion. There were two pictures posted side by side and I must have grabbed the wrong one. Melania was not purposely excluded nor was this meant to be a controversial post. I meant to change it but became busy. Once again, I apologize.

I apologize for the confusion. There were two pictures posted side by side and I must have grabbed the wrong one. …

However, Facebook users clearly weren’t buying the excuse and took to the comments section to continue expressing their anger.

“Childish crop job,” one commenter wrote, while another added, “We all know you did this on purpose. Extremely pathetic.”

Watch Melania Trump arrive at Barbara Bush’s funeral:

Even liberals came to Trump’s defense, with one person writing, “I support this organization and I am as liberal as they come but you should have posted the original picture without cropping the photo.”

“This pettiness is why people hate politics & don’t want to be involved in them,” another person wrote. “This pettiness costs valuable voices & votes. I don’t know who is responsible for posting pics on this page, but shame on them for altering the real photo.”

    Whoever the idiot was that cropped that picture and then apologized for it, saying it was a mistake is a ‘NUMBER ONE, GRADE A, DAMNED LIER.’ You know you did that on purpose and you should be ashamed of yourself. When are you left, liberal idiots going to grow up and stop picking on Melania. You just have to make yourself feel better about yourself, by putting down, picking on and bullying this wonderful woman.

      Very well said!! Melania Trump is a very beautiful and classy First Lady!! What she did for First Lady Barbara Bush Funeral ” Mother of all Mothers” was so unbelievable and representing her Husband President Donald Trump among so many Past Presidents I am sure was not an easy Job. Great Job First Lady Melania!! Love you.
