Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Wednesday, October 30, 2019

Rykard Jenkins is mostly known for his appearance on the U.K. reality show Love Island but he has recently been getting attention for something else. Rykard shared a picture of himself wearing a Trump 2020 baseball cap that had obviously been photoshopped. The hat he had originally been wearing in the picture (an advertisement for the FXB brand), had been edited to look like a Trump 2020 cap.

Jenkins, who lives in the UK, seems to have a sense of humor about the situation but while he may find the photo amusing, some people are seeing a pattern of Trump's team taking images of people of color and photoshopping them to promote himself.

It's probably not the Trump campaign doing this.

It's the Russian's 2020 disinformation campaign.

The people who continue to support Trump after this reveal are complicit and are just as dishonest as their hero is. How do y'all look at yourselves in the mirror?

No link to the actual use of the picture or any evidence of its use, unfortunately. Either the Trump campaign did the photoshop, or this guy did to bring attention to the cause he's pushing on his twitter feed, or someone 3rd party did for S&G, to defame one of the two parties, or to just sow discord. Maybe some day some evidence will be discovered, until then the media can just continue to post unsubstantiated article titles.

OMG there's even a picture of Eazy-e from NWA in one of those promos. I'm almost in tears from laughing so hard. Ignoring the fact that he's been dead for almost 25 years the idea that one of the members of N.W.A.... N.W. ---- A. would be a Trump supporter... no words.

Unable to find fault with my posting so you fall back to attempting to make personal attacks revealing your own prejudices against gay activity? I am not surprised in the slightest.

It was a 3rd party but for not for those reasons. It was an part of an ad attempting to sell knock off Trump merch on some conservative "news" site

While this may not have been an official Trump campaign advert, the people who produced it and put it on the net were simply trying to cash-in on the fact that members of Trump's base are easy marks. After all, the campaign started selling 'Get over it' T-shirts for $35 the day after Mick Mulvaney made the remark during his infamous response to a question about whether Trump was offering a quid pro quo to the Ukrainian president, "We do it all the time. Get over it."
