    Several right-wing news sites posted the photos as fact. Gateway Pundit posted the photo as a legitimate news story. The site’s editor, Jim Hoft, said in a post that the butt grab “was not as apparent in the video” that he embedded in his story.

    Hoft has since deleted his post.

    The photo was also picked up by a Nigerian news site, with the headline “See this picture of Obama putting his hand on Melania Trump’s ‘bum bum’ (photos).”

  5. One spanish twitter page even posted a video debunking the photo
