Seems pretty spot on to me.

Trump is a puppet of Putin.
Trump has played golf on his courses at taxpayer cost for 25% of his entire presidency.
The right claw full of cash is the result of his presidency and what he thinks it's worth to him.
He has turned our government into a two headed authoritarian theocracy.
The only thing left out of the seal was a prominent image of rampant nepotism nesting under the eagle.

I used to film speakers for a company who prepped spokespeople, prior to giving national press conferences. Knowing your background was considered critical to the learning process. We used to put up posters behind the student that ran totally counter to the message they wanted to give to see if they would catch it. They only had to make that mistake once and after that they always checked their background before the cameras rolled.
Once a spokesman for the logging industry in Oregon was speaking to the national press about sensible logging of old growth Oregon forests and someone had placed a 4 foot poster of a timber clear cut of old growth forest with a pile of dead spotted owls in the foreground.
That was the last time that guy ever spoke for the logging industry.

It was Trump's responsibility to know his background and if he didn't, then his advance people should have, unless he was speaking in front of a green screen where anything can be inserted into the background after the fact.

This major faux pas just shows that we have the leadership of a self absorbed idiot leading a team of very stupid people.
It also shows we have some very savvy young people coming up the ranks, so there's still hope for the future.

Just my thoughts on the incident based on professional experience.

Appears to have been the event's responsibility. In other news, TP USA hires morons. (Who ever could have guessed...)

"One of our video team members did a Google Image search for a high-res png (file) presidential seal," a source familiar with the incident said, adding that the individual "did the search and with the pressure of the event, didn't notice that it is a doctored seal."
I guess we should all be thankful he had Safe Search turned on.

Not buying that excuse.

Usually google searching turns up the most popular hits. I had to look down quite a bit to find the doctored image, although now that this story is off and running it's popping up near the top now.

I'll grant them Hanlon's Razor: "Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity."

Agreed. An unsung hero of the patriotic resistance now walks among us. Who knew?

He/she is probably hanging out with the chick who gave Trump's motorcade the bird. We salute you.
