Donald Trump tweets a lot of things with vary in subject and coherence but he rarely tweets pictures, especially ones of Air Force One with a lightning strike as a backdrop.

Yet that's exactly what happened on Monday evening shortly before the president arrived at a campaign rally in Fayetteville, North Carolina as a bolt from the heavens illuminated the aircraft as it was sitting on a wet and miserable runway.

Trump wrote in the caption of the tweet:

Departing MCAS Cherry Point in North Carolina for Fayetteville, North Carolina. This is amazing!

The picture was originally shared online by CNN reported Steve Brusk who credited the image to Orly Ruiz, Michael Wade Sanders and Liz Turrell of the pool photography crew, stating that it occurred after Trump had to cancel a planned tour of areas that Hurricane Dorian had damaged in North Carolina.

Trump, who didn't credit the photographers or Brusk in his tweet, still thought the shot was amazing, despite it looking like the plane had just encountered a near miss from above.

The imagery and the tweet didn't go unnoticed and people were more than ready to make jokes about higher powers aiming their wrath at the president.
