Default This just in!

Meet the man who created the fake presidential seal -- a former Republican fed up with Trump!

Charles Leazott hadn’t thought about the seal in months.

The 46-year-old graphic designer threw it together after the 2016 presidential election — it was one part joke, one part catharsis. He used to be a proud Republican. He voted for George W. Bush. Twice.

But Donald J. Trump’s GOP was no longer his party. So he created a mock presidential seal to prove his point.

He substituted the arrows in the eagle’s claw for a set of golf clubs — a nod to the new president’s favorite pastime. In the other set of talons, he swapped the olive branch for a wad of cash and replaced the United States’ Latin motto with a Spanish insult. Then, his coup de grace: a two-headed imperial bird lifted straight from the Russian coat of arms, an homage to the president’s checkered history with the adversarial country.

“This is the most petty piece of art I have ever created,” the Richmond resident said in an interview with The Washington Post.

The seal wasn’t meant for a wide audience. But then, years later, it wound up stretched across a jumbo-tron screen behind an unwitting President Trump as he spoke to a conference packed with hundreds of his young supporters.

This story just keeps getting better - the guy was not an anonymous member of the Resistance after all but instead is a dissatisfied former Republican. Who knew, right?

Man that one was a classic and the fact that he stood in front of it for a long time and that the originator wasnít actually an anti-Trump but one from their own Pro Trump group is even better comedy

Okay, this is hilarious. And this guy is making money hand over fist on this new notoriety. I like how he has made his new wallpaper a picture of Trump standing in front of it. And this:

"Iíve got to be honest, I am so tickled in the most petty way possible that the president of the United States, who I despise, stood up and gave a talk in front of this graphic. Whoever put that up is my absolute hero.Ē

Mine, too.
