Media deception: the iconic photo of America alone at the G7 Summit

Media deception: the iconic photo of America alone at the G7 Summit, by Tyler Durden. This photo is doing the rounds as the media tries to make it an iconic portrayal of Trump standing alone against right and proper people:

As with everything else in our new polarized normal, the photo did not tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth. …

The White House released this photo showing Trump holding court in a more relaxed setting, arms crossed, with Trudeau, Bolton, and Abe laughing…

France’s official release, unsurprisingly focused on Macron, with Trump barely visible…

And so on.

Trump is brilliant at bravely exposing the hypocrisy of the global elites. All the other G7 countries have high tariffs against some US goods, and the US has almost none on their goods. But the media won’t report that salient fact, instead complaining only that Trump is putting tariffs on some metals and “risking a trade war.”
