On Twitter Pale Primate adds a quote from Mr. Obama’s Dreams From My Father about his 1988 tour of Europe:
“And by the end of the first week or so, I realized that I’d made a mistake. It wasn’t that Europe wasn’t beautiful; everything was just as I’d imagined it. It just wasn’t mine.”
– Barack Obama

Update: HBD Chick questioned whether this photo was altered.
Here’s the original at the Daily Mail. The Mail doesn’t call attention to the hard-to-notice reflection, so the DM staffers likely didn’t notice it. Of course, this could be some kind of Deep Fake carried out by a nefarious conspiracy to get this picture posted in a major newspaper. But still …
Other skeptics have suggested that’s just a random reflection that only happens to look like Notre Dame burning.
And other skeptics have suggested that this could be some other large building near the Seine burning. Theoretically, they do have a point.
