Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump's campaign manager deleted a tweet featuring a dramatic photo of Air Force One at the Daytona 500 after users pointed out that the shot was from President George W. Bush's visit to the NASCAR race in 2004, not from Trump's visit on Sunday.

Brad Parscale tweeted the 2004 photo, which shows Air Force One rising above packed stands at the Daytona International Speedway in Florida, and wrote, ".@realDonaldTrump won the #Daytona500 before the race even started."

The tweet stayed online for about three hours, drawing at least 6,700 retweets and 23,000 likes before it was deleted. Users identifying themselves as Trump supporters replied with messages like "Amazing shot wow" and "WOW WHAT A SHOT!!!!!!!!!"
But the photo was taken by photographer Jonathan Ferrey on February 15, 2004, after Bush's visit to the racetrack, as Air Force One took off from the adjacent Daytona Beach International Airport.

2. Then they do a quick switcheroo.

Not an honest bone in this admin.

After Twitter users, including Voice of America White House bureau chief Steve Herman, noted that the photo was from 16 years ago, Parscale deleted the tweet and replaced it with a tweet featuring the same caption but a slightly less dramatic photo from Trump's arrival on Sunday -- of Air Force One circling speedway stands that were not completely full at the time.

5. You'll seldom find....

a NASCAR race track that's sold out anymore. Having every seat sold was the rule in the 90s, but it's the exception now. Many people can't afford a weekend at the race track anymore, and for a family of four it's going to run you at least $1,000, and that's cutting corners. They bastardized the races themselves - cutting them into two "halves" - that really take any excitement out of the race. I haven't watched a race in close to 20 years. It's all glitz and glamor now on cookie-cutter tracks. The France family got too greedy and forgot NASCAR's roots.

6. DOTURD POISONS EVERYTHING

EVERYTHING Doturd touches dies....

I used to enjoy NASCAR. Not so much recently, but in the past when Richard Petty was competitive.

I'd tune in the Daytona 500 since it's such a spectacle; "The Great American Race" as it were...

NOT.ANY.MORE.

Since the traitorous, pathological lying, idiot Russian stooge used it as a campaign backdrop.....not any more.

FUCK NASCAR.
FUCK TRUMP.

7. Next stop: Virginia

Where Trump will be shown accepting the sword of General Robert E. Lee as he surrenders to Trump at Appomattox Courthouse.

15. Here's a slight modification to your prediction:

Trump will lament the surrender of Robert E. Lee at Appomattox Courthouse. He gives a rousing speech to a pro-confederacy audience as he rails about how much better it would have been had the South won the Civil War.
