Support 'our' troops indeed. LOL


President Donald Trump’s campaign was caught again engaging in the careless use of stock photos, this time posting an image of Russian fighter jets in a “support our troops” ad. 

The ad from Trump’s fundraising committee ran Sept. 8 to Sept. 12, including on the 19th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks, Politico reported. It said “SUPPORT OUR TROOPS” and depicted soldiers in silhouette in the foreground with aircraft behind them: [tweet & photo at the link]

But the aircraft are Russian.

“That’s definitely a MiG-29,” Pierre Sprey, who helped design both the F-16 and A-10 planes for the U.S. Air Force, told Politico. “I’m glad to see it’s supporting our troops.”

Trump and his campaign have had repeated issues with misusing stock images over the years.

It might not have been a mistake, depending on what tRump's definition of "our troops" is.
