Right-wing Media Outlet Breitbart Thought Cavs Parade Crowd Was a Trump Rally


We agree, it was a great and possibly record-breaking crowd, but it was no Trump rally.

Right-wing media outlet Breitbart tweeted out a picture of a Donald Trump rally in Jacksonville in an article titled "Trump’s Jacksonville Rally Draws 15,000". Rumor has it the site used it after a Twitter user claimed it was in Florida.

There are several problems with using a random photo on Twitter anyway, but we'll spare you.

Either way, Twitter loved the mishap.
