Donald Trump used a noticeably out-of-date photo to commemorate 9/11. Ugh.

Time to add another item to the list of perplexing decisions the White House made on 9/11. 

On Tuesday, the below tweet was sent from Donald Trump's Twitter account as he and First Lady Melania Trump departed the White House for the September 11 remembrance ceremony in Shanksville, Pennsylvania, site of the crash of United Flight 93.

Seems fine on the surface. Except people on Twitter quickly noticed that a few things were off with the photo. First, the weather in D.C. was pretty rainy on Tuesday, not nice and sunny like in this photo. 

Second? Well, see if you can pick out a few departed Trump staffers in the photo. Omarosa and Hope Hicks are both there. As is former White House lawyer Ty Cobb. It's a real time capsule of an administration that's shed advisors at an unprecedented rate.

Certainly not the worst 9/11-related mistake the president has made, but it reinforces just how careless this administration can be. This kind of error, as New York Times reporter Maggie Haberman pointed out, would be quickly condemned by the White House if it was made by a journalist.

After all, if there's one president that we know is concerned with photographic accuracy, it's Donald J. Trump.
