FACT CHECKING Trump "X Ray". . . LOL !

https://misbar.com/en/factcheck/2020/10/04/fake-president-trumps-chest-xray

Emerging story

After President Donald Trump announced that he had tested positive for COVID-19, social media users claimed that Walter Reed Medical Center released his x-ay. Social media users shared a picture of the x-ray. 

The picture circulating has the following text: 

“FROM HIS DR’S EXAM AT WALTER REED HAS BEEN LEAKED.” 

 

The picture circulating with the claim attracted thousands of users.

Misbar’s Analysis

Misbar’s investigation found the circulating claim false. Using TinEye, we found that the picture circulating has been first found in 2013 without any text. 

The picture was created by Nick Veasey, a British artist that uses radiation-emitting x-ray technology.

However, we didn’t find any evidence or document that proves the Walter Reed Hospital released an x-ray. The same picture was shared in 2019.

Superman wouldn’t need an x-ray 

He literally has x-ray vision. He could just look in a mirror 

The fact checkers are like kryptonite to propaganda 

I read some of their other "fact checks" it isn't a parody site that I can tell but it is extremely biased and uses opinions to determine facts.

On the Superman looking into a mirror part, I don’t think you know how xrays work.

You’re right, I shouldn’t attempt to tackle things in such a scientific, non lighthearted manner when it comes to jokes

probably never heard of Superman

Hopefully people explain it to her and then she can do a followup and fact check if Donald Trump is Superman.
