BOSTON (CBS) – President Trump, traveling on his first trip abroad since his inauguration, met with the Pope today at the Vatican. A photo from the visit is making the rounds on social media. The picture, shared by many anti-Trump folks, showed President Trump smiling as he stands next to the Pope, who looks disinterested at best. People are using the photo to argue that the Pope was dismayed by Trump’s presence. But another photo snapped during the visit showed the two mid conversation, smiling broadly. Are we too quick to buy into news stories or images that confirm our own beliefs? Does seeing the two photos surprise you, or simply confirm the rampant anti-Trump bias that has dominated media airwaves? Check out the pictures on the WBZ NightSide with Dan Rea Facebook page.
