FFS, I’m now defending Trump from being called a cockwomble. I need a coffee. Also, he IS a cockwomble, but not for that. For a change.

The image is all over CBS sites to commemorate D-Day, alt tags show they they know it’s training. Trump was just lazy in appropriating it.

True, it’s a photo of a training exercise (see the instructor?) but the error may not be Trump’s. It’s a CBS promo? twitter.com/mrdavidboberes…
