Connecticut Republican Party Posts Fake Obama Photo To Warn He’ll Ban Newspapers

Many conservatives were outraged when President Obama was photographed in Havana at a ceremony near a building with a Che Guevara mural, a disapproval they didn’t seem to possess when Republican presidents posed next to communist icon.

But in its own response to Obama’s trip to Cuba, the Connecticut Republican Party fell for a photoshopped image of Obama holding a Che t-shirt that has been making the rounds on the internet. The t-shirt Obama is holding actually features a math joke.

The state GOP party chairman cited this fake image to speculate whether the president will follow communist countries in banning the free press.
