As Twitchy reported earlier, the New York Times eventually got in on the action surrounding that Daily Wire Photoshop of President Trump, noting that “in the original, Mr. Trump is seen awarding a Medal of Honor to James C. McCloughan, a retired Army medic who is credited with saving the lives of 10 men during the war in Vietnam.”

Twitchy favorite Jeryl Bier asked in good faith earlier how McCloughan felt about being replaced by a hero dog in his photo:

The good news (for people with a sense of humor) is that according to the New York Times, McCloughan wasn’t offended and laughed when presented with the Photoshop.

“Seems to be an altered version.”

To paraphrase Bier above, we wonder how the New York Times felt about tracking down McCloughan only to learn he was fine with the picture? Disappointed, probably.
