It seems conservatives still have Cleveland on the brain.

Breitbart News posted a photo Wednesday alongside an article headlined “Trump’s Jacksonville Rally Draws 15,000” that actually showed a crowd during a celebratory parade for the Cleveland Cavaliers winning the NBA finals this year.

Washington Examiner reporter T. Becket Adams pointed out on Twitter that the photo was a cropped version of one published by CNN following the Cavaliers’ victory parade in June:

Breitbart has since switched the photo out of the article for one of Trump walking onto the stage at the Florida rally and appended this clarification: “UPDATE: A photograph that was incorrectly attributed on social media to the rally in Jacksonville has been removed.”
