Mistakes happen, right? At least that’s what one Ohio newspaper — The Wapakoneta Daily News — wants you to believe.
Readers of their Monday edition were greeted with a picture on its front page showing President Trump with a “Hitler mustached.” Well, at least it looks that way to many people. Here’s the photo:

Um, yeah. That’s no mistake, notwithstanding this lame excuse the newspaper published:
Don’t you hate it when you’re sloppy and you end up making someone look like a genocidal maniac? Happens all the time, if you believe the media… which no one does anymore! People get upset over the President’s use of the phrase “fake news,” but does anyone actually still believe that the media is unbiased?
The Wapakoneta Daily News regrets the image of President Donald Trump published on Page 1A of Monday’s newspaper. While we edit photos on a daily basis, this particular photo was edited in a sloppy manner to make it appear the president had a mustache.The Wapakoneta Daily News would never intentionally insult our president in any manner. It was an unfortunate incident which we continue to investigate and we offer our apologies to our readers.
Please. No one in America believes that newspaper accidentally made Trump look like Hitler. This is why the media is in such bad shape — financially and otherwise. It’s time for them to stop playing around and start respected their readers. (Yes, even their conservative ones!)
