Is this what the Democrats really want to run for office some time in the future? On Sunday, Twitchy reported that a picture of former President Abraham Lincoln wearing a Make America Great Again cap actually prompted Chelsea Clinton to ask if it was photoshopped. The question, naturally, sparked a great deal of mockery on Twitter.
This is the picture that triggered the former first daughter:

Clinton asked: “Please tell me this is photoshopped. Please?”

No, Chelsea, this is an actual photo of what Lincoln wore when he ran for office… (sarcasm off… for now.)
Twitter responded accordingly:

No, Lincoln actually wore that hat in 1865; it was found at Ford's Theater. https://t.co/SblPYHNnf0

Seriously, did she really think an image of Lincoln in a MAGA hat wouldn’t be Photoshopped? That he was just walking around back in the 1860’s rockin’ a red baseball cap with a futuristic Trump slogan on it?
The nut doesn’t fall far from the tree.
Nope, sorry. Everybody knows they didn't have photoshop back then@ChelseaClinton

This is very true, so that means this has to be an actual photo from the 1860s, right?
Newsbusters’ Tom Blumer noted:
Chelsea Clinton is 37 years old — 19 years past the minimum voting age, 16 years over the legal age to drink, no longer entitled to reflexive press protection as the daughter of a Democratic President or presidential candidate, and thus eligible for ridicule when she deserves it — even if the establishment media’s gatekeepers don’t like it. I’d suggest that if you really have to ask, as Mrs. Clinton did, if a “Make America Great Again” hat seen on a rendering of Abe Lincoln on the cover of a Republican Party dinner program has been “photoshopped,” you deserve every bit of the ridicule coming your way.
