This is Possibly the Trumpiest Trump Campaign Photo of All Trump Time


The scene: A Trump rally held at the Prince William County Fair Ground, in Manassas, Va., on Wednesday.

The moment: Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, autographing a supporter’s chest following a speech. This might be the Trumpiest campaign photo of all time, caught by the lens of Corbis/AP photographer, Cliff Owen. Mother Jones is trying to work out whether other photos exist of candidates signing supporters’ chests from previous campaigns, or if this is unprecedented Trumpiness. If any are out there, please leave links in the comments section.
