YOu haven't got a clue as to how far off the target he was.

Especially at that barrel angle. There is NO WAY he was shooting skeet. Methinks it was a staged photo op.

And the way he has the butt of the gun against his shoulder, if he had actually fired it he'd be in a different position with a different expression on his face.

Because he'd be in pain.

So the photo was photoshopped before it was released. But we don't know by how much - maybe they just added the smoke, but if so they should have consulted someone who had seen a shotgun being fired.

And then the sheer stupidity of releasing a photo of a major politician on the internet with stern instructions that nobody doctor it. The mayor of Podunk might be able to get away with that, if Podunk actually had a mayor (the largest place of that name in the US is in Vermont and has about 50 residents), but a President? No way!
