A fake image has circulated heavily showing President Obama standing next to a mile marker number 69.
Mile Marker 69
The fake image was put into heavy circulation by the twitter account banditqueen_ when it was posted on September 3, 2015. The caption merely read “the leader of our country.” It depicts the President in casual clothes leaning over a mile marker with the suggestive number 69.

The actual photo was posted a day earlier on the White House Instagram account, showing President Obama standing next to a marker to show how much Exit Glacier in Alaska had receded over time. The marker shows a date of 1961, which was the year the President was born.
The image showing President Obama standing next to a mile marker “69” sign is fake. The real image features the President next to a marker for Exit Glacier, showing how much it has receded over time.
