Donald Trump gave a speech in DC on Tuesday for the conservative youth group Turning Point USA, which has a history of making racist and fascist comments (for example, “I HATE BLACK PEOPLE. Like fuck them all” and “the only thing the Nazis didn’t get right is they didn’t keep fucking going!”).
Luckily, it looks like someone took the saying a picture is worth a thousand words to heart and had the last word. Projected behind Trump while he spoke was what appeared to be the presidential seal. But look closer.
First of all, the eagle in the seal is not the eagle from the US presidential seal. Instead, it looks like the double headed eagle from the official coat of arms of the Russian Federation. And it is clutching in its left claw not arrows, but golf clubs.
It is hard to see what the eagle is clutching in his right claw, but it isn’t an olive branch. Instead, it appears to be a wad of cash. Finally, the motto over the eagle doesn’t say “E Pluribus Unum” like the presidential seal, it says “45 es un Titere”, which is Spanish for “45 is a puppet” (Trump is the 45th president).
Ironically, during his speech, Trump again attacked the news media, calling them “liars” and “fake news”. He then asked “can you imagine how good our poll numbers, with all the things we’ve done, how good our poll numbers would be if we had a fair media?” and an audience member shouted “100 percent”.
However, it appears that there is at least one person who wouldn’t give Trump a perfect seal of approval.
