It’s official. We have the dumbest media on planet earth.
President Trump shared an OBVIOUS meme today on Twitter or the “hero dog” that helped takedown former ISIS leader al-Baghdadi. He wrote on the tweet “AMERICAN HERO.”
It was obviously a photoshopped meme that a supporter had made and Trump shared it.
A sweet way to show love for the “Hero Dog.”
But right on cue, our Trump Deranged/humorless media had to jump in and ruin it.
These people are so self-righteous, I guess they thought they had “busted” Trump in some sneaky “fake pic” scandal?
Honestly, I don’t even know what these people were thinking – but liberals are melting down in record numbers over this meme.
The “scoop” reporter below actually called the White House because when he checked, he didn’t see a “canine” event on Trump’s calendar today.
Can you imagine being this clueless?
I've requested details from the @WhiteHouse on this photo.
There was no such canine event on today's @POTUS schedule but there is a Medal of Honor ceremony set here for later today for an active duty Green Beret. https://t.co/NESINT9J4b

Later the reporter alerted everyone that the White House had got back with him and said it was “photoshopped.”
Gee, ya don’t say??
But not before the New York Times put TWO reporters on this very serious story.
President Trump on Wednesday shared a photograph from 2017 altered to show him placing a medal around the neck of the dog injured in the raid that led to the death of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, the Islamic State’s leader.https://t.co/XUWwq0b9Ie

They wanted to get the gut-wrenching raw reaction from the “disrespected” Vietnam vet/medal of honor recipient in the original photo.
Sadly for the New York Times, he loved it. He even laughed and hoped the dog was doing well.
Better luck next time, guys.
The New York Times did a whole story on this, with two reporters on it. Oh, and the actual medal of honor winner laughed about it and said he was not offended. Of course he wasn’t. Only silly media people were offended. https://t.co/xzoIzSiEYm

The NYT was so shook by the photoshop of the dog getting the Medal of Honor that they reached out to the Vietnam veteran who was originally in the photo for comment.
His answer is epic and he even expressed concern about the dog's injuries. ♥️ 😭 pic.twitter.com/pE7iDoWwGA

It’s embarrassing how our media behaves – like petulant children. And they lack any self-awareness because they just keep repeating this horribly embarrassing behavior over and over again.
Below are some reactions from folks on Twitter.
Someone should alert the NY Times. https://t.co/98E5eBgc0i

The #NewYorkTimes – a former newspaper – has apparently "fact checked" the obviously photoshopped meme with the dog who chased down Al Baghdadi getting a medal.
These are fundamentally unintelligent people.

What would we all do without the crack journalists at The NY Times! Great work cracking the code on this OBVIOUSLY photo shopped image.
What a bunch of tools. Journalism is dead. pic.twitter.com/HsihbPfm0j

The fact that the media is fact checking an obviously photoshopped meme of Trump and the dog is something I would expect from the Onion. @nytimes

When a photoshoped meme of a dog is more important to the @nytimes than reporting real news. Criticize Trump for an obvious meme, praise dems for #kangaroocourtcoup. To bad they don't teach about yellow journalism anymore bc you would have the market cornered

Is this is a real headline or Babylon Bee satire of the New York Times? pic.twitter.com/u0j2nE7yNw
