Trump Busted Tweeting Fake 9/11 Tribute After Users Spot Omarosa, Hope Hicks in Photo Taken Months Ago
President Donald Trump tweeted a photo Tuesday of the White House staff paying tribute to the victims of the 9/11 attacks – but users quickly noticed that the photo was taken months ago when a number of former aides were still on the staff.
“Departing Washington, D.C. to attend a Flight 93 September 11th Memorial Service in Shanksville, Pennsylvania with Melania,” Trump tweeted along with the photo, apparently purporting that the photo was taken Tuesday.
But users quickly spotted two former aides – Omarosa Manigault Newman and Hope Hicks – still on the staff, meaning the photo was taken last year.
The White House did hold a memorial ceremony Tuesday but Trump was nowhere to be seen. He had already skipped town to fly to Pennsylvania.
