Elmo photobombing Theresa May is real!
The first and second photo of Donald Trump are fake, but the Elmo photobomb is definitely real.
As AP reports, after a man was denied assistance with his bedbug problem, he came back with a jar of them and released the bugs at the office. Inspiring.
The hoax started out on a Spanish satirical website, but was then passed off as real. Probably because it was so relatable.
There was a gathering, but police estimated a few hundred people showed up, not 5,000.
The video is from the March Against Racism in London, where pro-Trump counter-protesters showed up. Even though it was filmed months ago, Trump supporters mislabelled it as having been filmed right after the London Bridge attack.
There is absolutely no evidence that Theresa May said this, and a Conservative campaign spokesperson told BuzzFeed News this quote is false.
The image and on-screen text were doctored, Snopes reports.
