Skeet Shooting Pres

Why is this picture fake?

1. Skeet shooters don't wear dark glasses, especially when it is already cloudy outside. In the picture it is overcast. These glasses wouild make it next to impossible to spot the skeet.

2. Direction. Trap shooting or skeet are crossers moving L-r or R-L and high. Trap targets move up and out with a much inclined angle.

Based on this picture, Obama might be shooting clay targets but not shooting an actual game of skeet. People (unfamiliar with shooting sports) tend to describe skeet as any kind of shooting at hand-thrown clay targets. Skeet is a specific kind of sport.

3. I notice (or it appears) that he has only one choke in the gun, in his top barrel, so he isn't shooting skeet (the sport) because that requires two consecutive shots.

Lying about stupid crap like this is just stupid.

That is good. It's much more believable than a republican in a military uniform.

There is no shame in not knowing something, but if you don't know, you really should just not say anything.
Reading you post reminds me of the old saying "Better to remain silent and be though a fool than open the mouth and eliminate all doubt."

So the next time the NRA or Trump or whoever else feels the need to question Obama's cred, instead of posting pictures of him shooting a gun or going to church or what have you, he should post a graphic showing he's the first president since Eisenhower to capture at least 51% of the popular vote twice.

That mandate from the American people is really all the cred he needs.

That stat says it all.Except that voter rights were suppressed in Ike`s time, and also during Obama`s re-election. Despite all of that, the American voters asserted themselves each time. We live in a great Country.
