The retired New Jersey police officer who saved a baby locked in a hot car has been making the media rounds, including on HLN.

But it wasn't just the heroic rescue itself that made headlines after he appeared on CNN's sister channel.

During a live interview that aired Wednesday, the retired officer, Steven Eckel, wore a "Trump for President" T-shirt.

HLN said in a statement Thursday afternoon that the image was blurred "in error."

As the Daily Caller noted, the move came just days after HLN announced it was canceling Dr. Drew Pinsky's show. Pinsky recently questioned the quality of Hillary Clinton's health care, saying he was "gravely concerned" about the "1950s level" care the candidate was receiving.
