GOP Shares Portrait Of Trump That Makes Him Look Like Infamous Traitor Benedict Arnold

The Arizona Republican Party brought a wave of mockery and ridicule down on their heads with an image they shared on Twitter showing President Donald Trump as some sort of historical hero, Newsweek reports:

“The Arizona GOP tweeted the painting of Trump on Monday afternoon. In the painting, Trump is wearing a military uniform that looks like it’s from the late 1700s while holding an American flag in his left hand and touching a handgun with his right hand. A flying eagle is also pictured over his left shoulder.”

Along with the image, the Arizona GOP also fired off this message via Twitter:

“Sorry (not really), but we can’t stop fighting for election integrity! It’s just too important for our voters, our state, and our great country.”

Ok, whatever. But some sharp-eyed Twitter users were quick to note that the image of Trump reminded them of the notorious American traitor Benedict Arnold, who conspired with the British during the Revolutionary War:
