UPDATE: LifeNews has learned that the photo that has gone viral on Twitter this morning is not authentic and was not released by the White House. The photo was created to make fun of the White House and President Obama’s propensity to make pictures about himself.

Conservatives are scoffing today about a picture the White House released showing a silhouette of the First Family looking at a picture of a nativity scene adorning a wall in the White House just two days before millions of Christians celebrate Christmas.
Obama has been criticized over the years for official White House photos that see him glancing at pictures of celebrities, former presidents and world leaders — such as one that had him looking at a photo of Nelson Mandela after the civil rights leader passed away. Obama has been derided for narcissistically turning deaths of prominent people or historical events into a focus on himself.
The picture of the Obamas looking at the nativity scene is earning similar criticism from conservatives today on Twitter:

@Matthops82 There’s a very subtle ‘Obama is watching’ theme to all his photos.
