Another oops moment happened for President Donald Trump’s campaign manager stole George W. Bush’s photo from the Daytona 500 in 2004.

Tweeting Sunday, Brad Parscale proclaimed, “[email protected] won the #Daytona500 before the race even started.”

Except, it wasn’t him. As many people pointed out, the image was from 16 years ago by photographer Jonathan Ferrey, CNN reported. Parscale was forced to delete it and tweet it out again with an underwhelming photo.

Graham founded and runs the evangelical ministry Samaritan's Purse, whose mission is neither healthcare nor disaster relief, but "to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ."

It's unclear how a far right wing anti-LGBTQ Christian evangelical organization was allowed to build a 68-bed field unit that will be managed by a top New York City hospital, Mount Sinai, which has Jewish roots and whose president is openly gay – both of which violate Graham's mission.
