Donald Trump’s campaign has done it again.

On Tuesday, The Donald’s Twitter account featured a patriotic image of Trump’s face in an American flag, along with images of money, the White House — and some interesting soldiers.

The problem: As many folks online all noticed, those soldiers’ helmets had a distinctly recognizable square shape to them — they were, in fact, Nazi soldiers from World War II.

Furthermore, the spotted pattern of the camouflage uniforms, and the eagle-shaped insignias on their shoulders, demonstrate that these soldiers would’ve been from the infamous elite Waffen-SS units, which were heavily involved in some of the worst of the Nazis’ many wartime atrocities.

However, some further Internet sleuthing has determined that these “soldiers” likely aren’t real Nazis — they’re simply costumed re-enactors.

The tweet was soon deleted, and CNN reports that the Trump organization is blaming an intern for the mistake.

Now that we know how badly Donald Trump screwed up his 60 Minutes moment – he couldn't wait for us to find out the usual way – all that's left is commentary. And who better to comment on any Trump interview than comic Sarah Cooper? She mimes both the president and Lesley Stahl with a manner suited perfectly to the topic: "How to climate change."

Never mind that this encounter actually occurred a couple of years ago. Nothing has changed, except that Cooper is here to deliver righteous scorn. You will enjoy, and meanwhile her lip-syncing serves the ultimate good cause of saving the planet from its would-be destroyer via World War Zero.

"I don't know why Lesley Stahl even gives Trump the time of day," Cooper wonders. Good question!
