Cookie photo controversy: Yahoo Newsroom responds

“What is it with the Trump family that they obsess with Obama so much?” “Those two should run on a presidential ticket. Trump and Cruz 2024!” Photos of Donald Trump Jr., Ted Cruz, and an Obama cookie (you read that right) has set off Yahoo newsroom readers, and the comments are coming in fast.

President Trump’s eldest son shared photos of himself and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz posing with a cookie frosted with Barack Obama’s face. He captioned the picture, “And what birthday is complete without an Obama cake?” In the photos, Trump’s facial expressions sent a message and sparked some heated responses, most of them negative, on Yahoo Newsroom. As one reader wrote, “Geez you’d think they would do more productive things with their time.”
