The White House’s Director of Social Media tweeted out a since-deleted message on Hurricane Irma.
The problem is that’s not Miami’s airport. In fact the airport took to Twitter to disavow it.
This video is not from Miami International Airport.

Two things. They’re literally tweeting out fake news and saying they’re sharing it with the President and Vice President. One would hope the White House has access to better sources during such a significant emergency.
The video was actually from Mexico a week and a half earlier. The irony is rich when the current administration doesn’t know which side of The Wall they’re on.
In fairness I don’t remember the last time I saw ‘real’ ‘mainstream’ news write about air travel and use the correct photo of an aircraft. Here’s television news reporting the ‘names of the four pilots’ of Asiana 214. It was all blamed on an NTSB intern.
