Right-wing conservative commentator and author Dinesh D’Souza excitedly tweeted a picture of Hillary Clinton with a Confederate Flag on her bookshelf in the background. The problem? The photo was a fake. Thinking he had come across an astonishing find, D’Souza tweeted : “Look closely at this Hillary photo–isn’t that a #ConfederateFlag behind her on the bookshelf?”.
According to The Daily Beast :
Tens of thousands of people “liked” D’Souza’s Facebook post , and posted comments like “Mr. D’Souza, she could pose in a KKK Grand Dragon outfit, burning a picture of MLK and hugging Charles Manson, and she would still be the top choice for the Democratic candidate.” Alas, the image was fake.
“Whoops,” D’Souza said when The Daily Beast alerted him of his error and asked if he planned to correct it. “I did not know that. Someone sent it to me and I figured it must have been from their Arkansas days.”
A few minutes later, D’Souza tweeted : “CORRECTION: Disregard the photoshopped Confederate flag in the background of the Hillary photo and simply focus on those glasses and hairdo.” D’Souza edited his Facebook post to say, “Even if the #ConfederateFlag was edited into this Hillary photo, WHAT is going on with those glasses and that hairdo?”
