This was Senator Obama holding Bill Clinton’s jacket. Be Inspired

In the last few weeks this picture has been trending. The picture is said to be illustrative of  Barack Obama’s humility.

The caption reads

“Be calm God is taking you places. This was Senator Obama holding Bill Clinton’s jacket on Sept 5, 2005. Be Inspired”

Yet, if we only look closely we can clearly see this picture is wrongly depicted, and thousands of people on social media have gone on to share the picture without looking critically.

Who owns the “black” jacket?

Bill Clinton is wearing grey trousers and a short-sleeved shirt (one hardly wears a jacket on a short sleeve), while Barack Obama is wearing a black trousers and a long sleeve shirt.

This jacket definitely belongs to Barack Obama. We are not doubting Barack’s humility; or that God is taking you places. We only ask that people should consider a piece of information critically before accepting it and jumping on a band wagon.
