Following in his father’s footsteps, Eric Trump decided to lie about the crowd at Trump’s Pensacola rally in a tweet contain a photo from another rally almost a year ago.
In the tweet, Eric Trump claims the photo is of the “basket of deplorables” at Donald Trump’s rally in Pensacola, Florida, on Friday night. Only problem is, the photo is from a Sept. 14, 2015, rally in Dallas, with all identifying marks of American Airlines Arena carefully cropped out … except for the huge Texas flag just to the left of the bottom edge of the big overhead screen. Mark Cuban, whose Dallas Mavericks play in the arena called him out on the lie.
The original article on The Concourse at Deadspin also includes an actual photo from the Pensacola rally showing a pretty sparse crowd.
