Before meeting with Queen Elizabeth II and Prime Minister May Friday, President Trump took a seat in Winston Churchill’s chair at Chequers. Chequers is the official country home of the Prime Minister. Press secretary Sarah Sanders took a photo of Trump sitting gingerly in the chair.

As is the case with many seemingly harmless things the President does, however, the photo hit a nerve on the left. Twitter users called it the “top five worst photos I’ve ever seen” and called Trump a Nazi.
This is easily one of the top five worst photos I’ve ever seen https://t.co/tob9UpTyRl

Churchill was a good man. Trump, not so much. https://t.co/8RNzLAvMDq

CORRECTION: An earlier version of this piece incorrectly states that Chequers was the home of Winston Churchill. It is the official country home of the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom.
