Arizona Republican congressman shares fake photo of Obama with Iran leader on Twitter

Photoshopped fake image from Arizona GOP Congressman Paul Gosar shows former President Obama and Iran President Hassan Rouhani saying the world would be "better off without either of them."

Arizona GOP Rep. Paul Gosar tweeted a fake image of a photoshopped meeting between former President Barack Obama and Iran President Hassan Rouhani amid growing tensions with Iran, captioning the post with, "The world is a better place without these guys in power."

Twitter users were quick to point out the photoshopped image Monday afternoon, noting the original image was of a meeting between Obama and India's Prime Minister Manmohan Singh.

Gosar sent a follow-up tweet calling out "dim witted reporters," saying that "no one said this wasn't photoshopped" and "no one said Obama met with Rouhani in person."

4. Yes, but...


The difference is that his previous adventure into conspiracy mongering was on a subject that quite a number of people here agree with.

11. Hahahahahaha

That's genuinely funny, even for a party where the jokes write themselves.

Gosar's my congresspuke.

My former residence was in Duncan Hunter Sr./Jr.'s. district.

Talk about a coupla a-hole reps, in maggot-infested areas.



Oh, well--at least I know I cancel out a RWNJ's vote at each election.

15. Need to publish a pic of Gosar with a mistress.

"No one said Paul Gosar was having an affair with that woman". "We just said that she was too good looking for him". "Get a clue!"

18. I know it is fake,

but they act like his efforts for peace were a bad thing. If it were real, I suspect President Obama would be proud of it.
