A GOP Congressman Posted a Fake Pic of Obama. He's Now Doubling Down

quote [ A GOP congressman circulated a fake photo of former President Obama on Monday, showing him shaking hands with Iranian President Hassan Rouhani. Arizona Rep. Paul Gosar tweeted the photo, adding the caption, "The world is a better place without these guys in power." The photo has long been debunked—Obama and Rouhani never actually met in person—and Rouhani is actually still in power. Per CBS News, the part of the image that shows Obama appears to have been lifted from a 2011 picture of him shaking hands with then-Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh. ]

Conservatism used to have a real purpose in American politics, but, now it has devolved into this strange creed with a tantrumlike struggle against reality.

Doesn't this fall under "slander" or some such law?

Also, this is the sort of shit that causes a "proud gun owner" to shoot up a Democratic headquarters?
- you know like the Pizzagate nutbar?
