This is just a random White House Twitter pic where Obama is sitting and talking to his flunkies, but take a look at the throne! Is it African? I mean, there is a bust of the Rev. Hon Dr. Martin Luther the King behind him, and a crossbow???

Yea, this is coming from the Whitehouse not some comedy channel. They think of him a king

Folks, it was from a bad comedy bit during the correspondents dinner. Lame Game of Thrones joke. Relax.

Yes, obviously (Photoshopped). But, it’s not funny. It’s delusional.

Yeah. It’s the White House that’s having fun with Photoshop.

One’s notion of fun can speak volumes.

Yes, Obama presented this photo last night, thinking he is funny. It’s a clear view into his depraved mind. I don’t find that to be very relaxing.

The incident might provoke a little bit of local excitement. Somebody is having fun at Obama’s expense.

Those are supposed to be dragon’s eggs – from the GOT show. The table with a crossbow appears to be a block-stone pedestal, poorly inserted in the frame…

It’s a bad Photoshop job, I should know ;-)

The pineapples are made up to look like the dragon eggs. Daenerys Targaryen is gifted three dragon’s eggs during her marriage ceremony.

It’s posted to the Internet by the White House. That means somebody approved it for release...

Totally. Everyone in the room is focused on the speaker and totally ignoring all of the items. Why release a photo where no one is paying any attention to these attention-getting props?

Not very funny for the president of the united states to joke around using photoshop. I mean, how many believable photoshops have they put out??? Oh wait. They fake things regularly starting with birth certificates.

He was illustrating his “Imperial Presidency.” He thought it was a joke.
I thought it was par for these jerks.

If it freaks you out, then it is getting the desired reaction.

Come on, don’t fall for this.

Keep focused.

At his expense? I’m sure they think it’s no small praise to their messiah.

That throne looks like something from witchcraft or dark ages, and the BOW on the table? Yes, it does look like a crown in his lap. Has the pic been photo shopped?

Seriously suspicious photo?

Post 11 has the correct answer.

This photo was used in
Zero’s horrible performance last night at the WH correspondents dinner, as a joke.
