It’s not real.

The image dates back to 2011 and was circulated on satirical websites at the time, including a “story” about President Obama and UK Prime Minster David Cameron engaged in a kiss. Some have mistakenly claimed the other man in the photo is former Vice President Al Gore.

A caption being attached to this image in 2013 reads:

Well if Obama wants this off the Internet then of course I am just going to post it even more! Make sure you share this too

The real photo is of President Obama kissing his wife Michelle, as seen below:


The fake image (below) is currently being circulated with a caption that reads: “REPOST: Obama wants it off the internet!”

    The kiss with Michelle looks like it is posed for effect…..also looks like a horrible kiss for a married couple.

  2. It might have been posed, but I think people forget that a snap-shot in the midst of a moment of motion can come out pretty weird.

    I have a picture around here somewhere, of me kissing my late husband, that is far worse than this one – my mother (who was taking the picture) said something smart-ass just as she snapped the shot, and the beginning of a laugh on both our faces looks like we both smell something awful and would rather be anywhere else but there. Just a trick of light and timing.

  3. If you compare this photo (Obama kissing Michelle) of O with the one that is circulating at the moment, it is evident that they are not the same. What that means, I don’t know, but the claim that this is “the real photo” is false.

    • Look at his head in relation to the flag behind him, and look at the wrinkle pattern on his jacket. It’s the same photo, but highly edited to remove Michelle.

    Wrinkles on right arm at elbow is identical in both.
    Jacket back wrinkles same in both.
    one man appears to have a little cleavage.
    Pixels on back of Obama jacket where his wife hand was are a different shade.
    A piece of Obama’s Wife’s hair appears to be stuck in his forehead on the shopped one.
    It’s shopped.
    Sloppy but still shopped.

    The photo of him “kissing” the other man IS FAKE. The wrinkles on his jacket are identical. The kiss with him and his wife is real. Him “kissing” the other man is fake.
