Trump Jr. deletes a fake chart he posted of his dad’s approval rating

Donald Trump Jr. loves two things: defending his father and posting memes.

Yesterday, that habit got him in trouble. Trump Jr. posted a graphic that had been making the rounds online. It showed some of President Donald Trump‘s favorable numbers compared to Obama at this point in his presidency.

The only problem? That number, in the real chart, was 39 percent. Trump’s approval rating, despite those numbers, is much lower than Obama’s.

Oh and also there’s that whole Obama took office after the worst economic collapse in history, but whatever.

The doctored image was quickly noticed by other sites.

To his credit, Trump Jr. has now deleted the image.
