President Donald Trump was conspicuously absent from the photo.

He stayed home in Florida amidst reports that he was told he was not wanted at Barbara Bush’s funeral.

Barbara Bush passed away last week at her home at age 92.

The same photo was posted on Facebook by the Lubbock County (Texas) Democratic Party Headquarters – though it showed everyone except for the current first lady.

Leo Flores, the vice chair, told KCBD-TV that ‘it was an honest mistake.’

He said he grabbed the photo from his Facebook feed and didn’t notice the omission.

Flores said he became preoccupied with another matter and forgot about the mistaken photo altogether.

While the photo that was posted didn’t have a caption, a new caption was added which read: ‘I apologize for posting an incomplete picture.

‘I didn’t realize anyone was missing until it was pointed out.’ 

Despite the apology, some Facebook users were not convinced this was an innocent mistake.

‘Childish crop job,’ wrote one commenter.

‘We all know you did this on purpose,’ another Facebook user wrote.

‘Extremely pathetic.’
