Democratic Party members in Lubbock, Texas, have been getting blasted on Facebook for cropping First Lady Melania Trump out of a now-viral picture from Barbara Bush’s funeral.
The original photo features former presidents George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama — posing alongside Melania and first ladies Hillary Clinton, Laura Bush and Michelle Obama.
Someone at Lubbock Democratic Party Headquarters posted the edited version on Sundayand later claimed they did it by accident. But Facebook users weren’t buying it.
“Childish crop job,” wrote one commenter.
“We all know you did this on purpose,” another seethed. “Extremely pathetic.”

“It was an honest mistake,” said vice chair Leo Flores, who later offered an apology on Facebook.
“I apologize for posting an incomplete picture,” he said. “I didn’t realize anyone was missing until it was pointed out. Thank you for your concern.”….
