It's not unusual for President Donald Trump's administration to dismiss or outright deny the existence of climate change and the future weather patterns it presents.

It is unusual, however, for the White House to deny the weather happening in the present, especially since it can be fact-checked by looking out the window.


So people were confused when the White House's official Twitter account tweeted about the so-called first snow of the year.

The problem? The weather in D.C. was about 20 degrees too warm for snow.

People joked that the White House was testing just how far its lies could go.





It's not out of the question that the White House would deny the weather.

In the summer of last year, Trump or someone on his administration infamously doctored an official weather forecast with sharpie to falsely put Alabama in the path of a hurricane to vindicate inaccurate tweets Trump had sent earlier.

People soon began alluding to that gaffe.




The White House later clarified that the picture was from January 7, the actual time it snowed in D.C. for the first time in 2020.
