It's amazing how supporters of President Trump will get behind anything he says. After the celebrity-in-chief called any NFL player protesting during national anthem a "son of a b***h" last week, this fake picture of Seattle Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett burning the American flag with the caption "no more NFL" was posted on the "Vets for Trump" Facebook group's page yesterday.
Despite the image being blatantly Photoshopped, the group's members ran with it, sharing it over 5,000 times and destroying Bennett's and the Seahawks' names in the process until they had their bubble burst and were exposed for reacting to a fake picture.
Here's the fake shot that lit "Vets for Trump" on fire and the ignorance that ensued.
Shaking our heads.
They seriously thought this picture was real.
Can't make this stuff up.
