Conservatives mocked President Obama after an interview with the New Republic in which he was asked if he ever shot a gun -- and replied that he often shot skeet at Camp David.

So after a day of demanding a picture of Obama with a gun, the White House obliged today -- meaning Donald Trump won't have to offer $5 million to see it, and the "Skeeters" who believed a conspiracy theory was afoot might have to step down.
