Another day, another period in the ongoing squabble between Donald Trump and NFL players who are taking the knee in protest against police savagery.
You might have envisioned on Twitter or Facebook this situation that purportedly illustrates an NFL player burning the U.S. pennant in the cupboard office as his teammates enthusiastically look on 😛 TAGEND
Besides the utter incongruity of the scene, it immediately pops to the eye that there’s something wrong with the hand hampering the flag.
But that didn’t avoid countless beings from sharing it on Titter:
SEATTLE SEAHAWKS R THE WORST EVERY ONE SEE THEM BURNING OUR FLAG IN THEIR LOCKER ROOM BOYCOTT THEM UNTIL THEY R OUT OF BUSINESS THEY R ALL COMMIES, IT FIGURES THERE FROM WASHINGTON WHERE ALL COMMIE DEMS R

The picture was maybe announced firstly on the republican Facebook page “Vets for Trump”, where millions of parties showed their outrage and called for a boycott 😛 TAGEND
However, a speedy Google search clearly shows the image was photoshopped:
The original one is from 2015 and demonstrates defensive resolve Michael Bennett producing the team “in the now-traditional post-victory dance in the cupboard room”, in agreement with the Seattle Seahawks official website:
Even some pro-Trump beings realised “its been” hoax because, you are familiar with, sprinklers would be activated if something is burning in the lockroom 😛 TAGEND
I’m pretty sure the sprinklers would be going off if this was real. I’m done with the NFL even if it is photoshopped. Enough is enough
