After the sadness that reigned during the funeral of Barbara Bush, the former First Lady to the 41st President and the mother of the 43rd, an image showing a grouping of four former commanders-in-chief and First Ladies went viral.

The picture which was tweeted by Jim McGrath, the former speechwriter for President George H. W. Bush now serving as his private spokesman. It took the US by storm and many praised the people in the picture for letting politics step aside.

Commentators wrote, “this is the beauty of the idea that is the United States of America.”

Even in lesser populated Texas cities like Lubbock, Democrats just can&#39;t accept that Trump is president, and do whatever they can to erase him from their little minds. <a href="https://t.co/fS3y9xADZ9">https://t.co/fS3y9xADZ9</a></p>&mdash; Danny Hendrie (@dannyh1264) <a href="https://twitter.com/dannyh1264/status/989288747530440706?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">April 25, 2018</a></blockquote>

However, the Texas Democratic Party Headquarters in Lubbock didn’t see it that way, as they reposted that same picture on their own Facebook page, having clearly made an effort to crop out First Lady Melania Trump who was standing on the right.

“Childish crop job,” wrote one commenter.

“We all know you did this on purpose,” another said. “Extremely pathetic.”

“This pettiness is why people hate politics & don’t want to be involved in them.”

“This pettiness costs valuable voices & votes. I don’t know who is responsible for posting pics on this page, but shame on them for altering the real photo.”

The Lubbock County Democratic Party Headquarters was booed from all sides for its handling, which the Vice Chair of the party, Ms Leo Flores, claimed was done without their knowledge.

Ms Flores: "It was an honest mistake."

After the post garnered many negative comments, it was later deleted from the Democratic party’s Facebook page and replaced with a caption: “I apologize for posting an incomplete picture. I didn't realize anyone was missing until it was pointed out. Thank you for your concern.”

Not surprised at all. Most Latinos that run for anything around here in Lubbock are damacrats and very blind to the Truth in politics.

#DemLibs believe they can change the definition of words and phrases to rationalize their actions. Cover by the #BSMedia and beachdiving Americans allow them to literally get away with murder. Of course people who commit suicide are not convincing witnesses in the court of public opinion.
