Two photographs of President Obama partying at a resort party while the town of Ferguson burns were deleted by the photographer who took them.
Martha’s Vineyard-based photographer Elizabeth Cecil posted a shot of Obama dancing at a Vineyard party taking place during the race riots engulfing Ferguson, Mo., leading to social media outrage and at least one comparison to the infamous photograph of George W. Bush flying over a drowning New Orleans in Air Force One.

Cecil gave Breitbart’s Charlie Spiering no comment as to why she deleted the photos.
The White House did not immediately respond to our inquiry as to whether it pressured Cecil, the photo editor of “Edible Vineyard,” to remove the photo.
