Trump ad with Russian Jets supporting our troops




The ad, which was made by the Trump Make America Great Again Committee, features silhouettes of three soldiers walking as a fighter jet flies over them. The ad first appeared on Sept. 8 and ran until Sept. 12.

“That’s definitely a MiG-29,” said Pierre Sprey, who helped design both the F-16 and A-10 planes for the U.S. Air Force. “I’m glad to see it’s supporting our troops.”

14. That would make a nice ink stamp for...

The 'monopoly' money being printed in the Republican Pump & Crash Economy.

And for many printers to print many sheets of paper with multiple images on them to be cut up and left everywhere for people to find and see everywhere.

[...]

After this story was published, the creator of the image, Arthur Zakirov, confirmed in a Facebook message that it shows a 3D model of a MiG-29, and that the soldiers were Russian models. He said it was a composite photo created five years ago and taken in three different countries showing Russian sky, Greek mountains and French ground.

17. The ad, which was made by the Trump Make America Great Again Committee,

20. And that rifle on the right is a Kalashnikov
