Comedians must be over the moon with the Donald Trump campaign. After comedians like Jon Stewart have torn apart the candidate, one would think Trump would be extra careful to not give them any more ammunition.

Yet, a picture tweeted yesterday by the Trump campaign featured a close-up of Trump's face with an American flag and some soldiers. Unfortunately for Trump, the soldiers, upon closer examination, are clearly identifiable as Nazi soldiers, thanks to the SS eagle insignia visible on their arms.

The tweet was quickly deleted after some more observant Twitter users noticed the mishap. The Trump campaign was quick to blame the mistake on "a young intern," who found the picture online and used it in the image.

This mistake comes after Trump's questionable remarks regarding Mexicans and immigrants being drug dealers and rapists. Yet, this seemingly negative publicity seems to only be fuelling the Trump train, with recent polls showing Trump to be a serious contender for the Republican presidential nomination.

I guess all publicity really is good publicity after all.
