Trump tweets fake photo of dog in recent Isis raid getting medal of honor
Donald Trump has tweeted a fake image of himself awarding a medal of honor to the military dog involved in the raid that killed the Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

A conservative website produced the image, replacing the retired army medic who actually received the honor with the dog’s head

Donald Trump  has tweeted a fake image of himself awarding a medal of honor to the military dog involved in the raid that killed the Islamic State leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi.

The image, apparently produced by the Daily Wire, a conservative site, is an altered version of an actual photograph of Trump awarding the medal of honor in 2017 to James McCloughan, a retired army medic who was honored for saving the lives of 10 people during the Vietnam war, the New York Times  reported .

The medal of honor is the most prestigious military decoration awarded to US service members for extraordinary acts of valor.

In the image tweeted by the US president, McCloughan’s head has been replaced with the head of the dog,  reportedly named “Conan” , with his tongue hanging out of his mouth.

McCloughan laughed when a Times reporter  showed him the two images .  Military dogs “are very courageous”, he said.

It wasn’t the dog’s first brush with fame. On Tuesday, Trump tweeted another photo of the “wonderful” animal, who was injured during the raid on Baghdadi’s Syrian compound.

The defense secretary, Mark Esper, has said the dog “performed a tremendous service, as they all do”.

The Pentagon provided further information about the military animal on Wednesday, saying that the animal was hurt after being exposed to live electrical cables but has returned to active duty.

Gen Frank McKenzie, who leads US Central Command, told reporters the dog was injured when it came in contact with the cables as it pursued Baghdadi in a tunnel underneath the compound in north-western Syria.

The Pentagon has not released the dog’s name. McKenzie said the dog has worked with special operations forces for four years and taken part in about 50 missions. He said working dogs like this one are “critical members of our forces”.

The hero dog got a medal from a pig. 

-

The real recipient of the medal seems not to mind the prank, but I think Trump could have at least acknowledged the man whose picture was taken out of the photo.

If I was still in the Army and qualified for the medal, I would rather turn it down than have a draft dodger present it to me.

Oh. Hell. To. The. No.  

I have no problem with the dog receiving a medal.  I'm sure that both he and his handler are more than deserving. The problem is with Trump making it about himself with a sham scenario.  Again.

Trump needs to be amidst heroes.  That is something he can never be.

None the less, the vacuuous MAGA hat base needs the fuel or it will burn itself out.

Couldnt Trump just say something positive about the dog without putting himself in the center of a "ceremony" giving the dog the congressional medal of honor?

If you look it isn't a congressional medal of honor and Trump didn't make the meme he merely tweeted it.

The  picture is an obvious fake.  Conan has not met with Trump so how is he honoring the dog?  If he had simply used the picture and privately presented it to his handler with "I wish I could do this for real." then maybe I would have said well done.   But no.  He tweeted it out along with statements he never made adding another lie to the growing pile all to make himself look good.

I don't think dogs like him either.  It would be quite the punishment for the poor pooch for this 'president' to place the medal.  It would be great though if he actually did, and the dog pissed on his leg.

If the proud hero does come to the WH, trmp will probably insist on a thorough cleaning and take about 3 showers because "dog germs".

Isn't he a germophobic?

The Medal of Honor is, IMO, something that should not be used as a prop or in ridiculous tweets and memes. 

To me, it's a sacred thing signifying the highest form of self-sacrifice by the individual for his country and fellow servicemen and women. 

Is the dog worthy of an award, IMO of course? As far as I know that US military does not have a category for awards to military dogs. The Lois Pope foundation which sponsors the American Humane hero dog awards has a special award for the dogs. 

https://www.militarytimes.com/news/your-army/2018/05/29/these-four-military-dogs-just-received-the-nations-highest-honor/

Should the military have a special category for the canine hero's...Yes and Yes again. 

The British have this system and award, it called the ''Dickin Medal''.

Yes, it has been altered and that to me is disgusting. It is a very special award and, IMO, should never be used or altered for jokes/memes/tweets or any other thing.

No, I never did meet Sherman Williford.
