Photograph shared in May 2024 depicts Obama posing with Sean "Diddy" Combs

 May 24, 2024

At the time of writing, and Snopes claim that there's "Research In Progress" regarding a photograph that shows former President Barack Obama posing with Sean Combs, who is currently part of an ongoing sex trafficking investigation.

In May of 2024, a photograph went viral on social media that allegedly shows rapper Sean "Diddy" Combs posing next to former U.S. President Barack Obama. It is unclear whether there is actually debate over whether or not the picture is faked or if mainstream media sites are simply trying to cover for liberals.

If he's guilty of even half of what he's being accused of, Diddy's life could be over. At the very least, his career is probably close to over anyway.

Starting in March 2024

The first time the photo may have been seen was late in March 2024, when federal agents executed a search warrant and raided Combs' homes in Los Angeles and Miami as part of a sex trafficking investigation.

"The media doesn't want you to see this, so you know what to do," a social media post claimed back then.

"Here is President Obama throwing his support behind a p********," another commenter said.

Another user was quick to respond with a picture of Donald Trump meeting the same man.

Snopes appears unsure

The report on MSN that appears to by syndicated from Snopes is not yet willing to say if the photograph is authentic or not, but they ARE willing to come right out and say that it doesn't matter either way:

"However, contrary to what social media users suggested, the photo itself did not indicate any involvement in or connection to the specific controversies facing Combs on Obama's part. Social media users also underscored that the rapper has been photographed with various other prominent figures, including former President Donald Trump," they reported.

"In short, despite the widespread circulation of the photograph, we have not found any reliable sources confirming or denying its authenticity. However, the existence of previous photos of Combs and Obama together, as well as the rapper's support for Obama's presidency, suggests that the latest image could be authentic. Because of that, we have rated this claim as 'Research in Progress,'" their assessment read.

Reaching out to Obama

Snopes/MSN claims to have reached out to the Office of Barack and Michelle Obama and the Obama Foundation for a comment, but does not appear to have received a response.

What do you think about this story? Does it matter, or are people making a mountain out of a molehill?
