Ex-Transport Minister Scheuer made a fool of himself with a tweet about Luisa Neubauer


It's a strong photo: Dark-looking police officers carry Luisa Neubauer away - the climate protector's face appears bright. The news agency countered.

Ex-Transport Minister Andreas Scheuer (CSU) apparently missed a tweet that referred to a photo with climate activist Luisa Neubauer.

The picture shows how three police officers carry Neubauer away from a sit-in in the context of the anti-lignite protests near Lützerath in North Rhine-Westphalia.

Neubauer's face appears lighter than the surroundings and the faces of the police officers.

»Perfectly lit or helped with Photoshop?

The main thing is a high attention factor.

My thanks to the 3 police officers who do their job for law and order!" Scheuer tweeted.

Apparently, the Bavarian sensed some form of manipulation, thanks to which the prominent climate protectionist had appeared more favorably in the mass media.

But the thesis of the conspiracy theory was probably a mistake - the news agency dpa, from which the picture comes, also let Scheuer know immediately on Twitter: It was the light of a nearby police car that illuminated Neubauer's face.

A favorable coincidence for the photographer, who captured it with the camera at the right moment.

The CSU man did not react to this reply in the hours that followed.
