Yet another old tweet by President Donald Trump is coming back to haunt him.
The 2015 message was a complaint about a PSA starring Smokey Bear:
Who is paying for that tedious Smokey Bear commercial that is on all the time – enough already!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) January 8, 2015
It’s not clear which commercial Trump was referring to.
Smokey Bear is the National Park Service’s longtime mascot that was created to promote wildfire awareness, warning campers and hikers that “only you can prevent forest fires” and “only you can prevent wildfires.” He’s often been used to teach sound camping habits, such as campfire safety, as well as warning against carelessness, like tossing cigarettes.
Trumps’s resurfaced tweet generated a surge of new replies:
Oh holy mother of God. This is a real tweet.

Lol your tweet was from Jan 7 2015 But nonetheless Smokey Bear will out do Trumpy Bear any day. At Least Smokey Bear puts out messages of Safety, you put out messages of hate
