Donald Trump tweeted a photo showing him allegedly putting a medal around the neck of the “hero dog” that participated in the raid that ended up in the death of ISIS leader, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.
The reality, though, is that the photo didn’t really happen. Someone photoshopped a picture of the hero dog over an Associated Press photo of 2017 Medal of Honor recipient James McCloughan.In fact, the hero dog has never been to the White House and is back on duty despite being injured by an electric cable during an explosion at the raid, according to U.S. Central Command.
And, by the way, this was not the first instance of photoshopping of official White House photos. Here’s one that photoshopped Trump’s former National Security Advisor John Bolton out of a photograph, replacing him with Attorney General William Barr.Well, as Trump once said, “Don’t believe the crap you see from these people, the fake news. … What you’re seeing and what you’re reading is not what’s happening.”
