0125-donald-trump-new-yorkerABC News used a mocked up pic of Donald Trump in the Oval Office to promote its first TV interview with the prez, and the image was ripped from The New Yorker! Oops.

Side note: Shout-out to The New Yorker's art department. Ya fooled ABC.

Prince William was also there to honor the late adventurer Henry Worsley. He and his bro spent the evening recognizing the achievements of many wounded or sick servicemen and women.

As far as we can tell, though ... only Harry grabbed a handful of beard hair at the event.
