A bloodied and beaten Samara Weaving has unwittingly become the face of Donald Trump’s campaign for the Whitehouse.
A photo of the former Home And Away star had been tweeted by Trump supporters claiming “Here’s what happened to female Trump supporter when she met ‘peaceful’ and ‘tolerant’ liberals”.

The problem is, none of those statements are true.
The photo had in fact been lifted from a previous Daily Mail article which featured the pic from Weaving’s make-up artist Hannah Wilson.
Taken while on set for the horror-comedy series The Evil Dead, the picture featured Weaving made-up for her character, Heather.
However, despite being called out by multiple sources – including Weaving herself, it seems these Trump supporters haven’t been deterred with the tweet yet to be deleted.

Just another day in the campaign for Presidency really.
