Texas Democrats shared a photo from Barbara Bush’s funeral to Facebook last week. No big deal, right? Well, what they did to the photo to censor it has them in hot water. This is another example of how nasty the Dems can be. Compare the photo right below with the photo from the Texas Democrats. Oh yes they did crop out our First Lady Melania Trump! It’s like when Obama posted a NYT photo of a cropped out George W. Bush and First Lady Laura in a photo from the Selma Anniversary March.
A rare gathering — The 41st, 42nd, 43rd and 44th Presidents of the United States, their spouses, and current First Lady Melania Trump photographed together at the funeral of former First Lady Barbara Bush in Texas on Saturday. (Photo via George H. W. Bush Office) pic.twitter.com/dUzRatQLCK

The Lubbock Democratic Party posted a photo to their Facebook page that showed George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama posing with Hillary Clinton, Laura Bush and Michelle Obama:
They followed up with a lame apology:
When questioned by Waco station KXXV about this enormous discrepancy, the party’s vice-chair, Leo Flores, claimed it was just “an honest mistake.”
He said that he grabbed the doctored photo from his Facebook feed and shared it without doing his due diligence. He then left the photo up FOR THREE DAYS claiming he got caught up in work.
THREE DAYS LATER!
Flores finally posted the correct photo three days later with an attempted apology:
“I apologize for the confusion. There were two pictures posted side by side and I must have grabbed the wrong one. Melania was not purposely excluded nor was this meant to be a controversial post. I meant to change it but became busy. Once again, I apologize.”
The responses on Facebook were overwhelmingly in support of our first lady!
