How did Trump end up in front of a presidential seal doctored to include a Russian symbol?

I'd bet that even YOU would have words to say to some punk who disagreed with you in your place of work, had they replaced your company logo with a replica with a penis hidden in it.


You also don't understand the Constitution.

Was any money defaced?

I am relieved to hear that this has been explained away as an honest mistake by the A/V person who was asked to make a change to the background images at the last minute.

From the article you linked:

Trump appears in front of doctored seal with Russian and golf imagery, TPUSA aide fired


"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 feel bad for the A/V person at the center of this controversy, if it was indeed an honest mistake (I have no reason to doubt that at this time), but you need to be careful what you find on the Internet. "Trust but verify" comes to mind.

I wish the A/V person good luck in the future and hopefully this incident doesn't hound them forever. Mistakes happen. Learn from them and do better in the future.


That HAS to be the biggest load of crap I've ever heard of.. lmfao..

Any govt seal has to be specific and authorised, not just sourced from google. At least where I am, and I worked in the government sector. Official logos were the only ones used, and we had them located on our servers.

Google Image search? Yeah, nah... lol

It'd be fine if it were, yes? Freedom of speech.

Meet the man who created the fake presidential seal — a former Republican fed up with Trump.


Gee, he made it in 2016, just after the election. Before he even knew anything about Trumps presidency.

Guess he showed him.

Orange Man Honk REEEEEEE...

Yep. The walls of my brewery are literally covered in "defaced" dollars. Do you think the hundreds of people that have left a dollar on our wall should be arrested and tried?

The A/V person didn't work for the Government nor is TPUSA a part of the Government. They were the ones doing the presentation and the White House or any Government agency did not produce the presentation.

I agree that the seal has to be specific and authorized, ON OFFICIAL DOCUMENTS. This was not an official government function. This was a private organization that invited the President to speak at their conference. The private organization was responsible for the audio visuals and therefore they were responsible for sourcing the materials used in the presentation. I am sure if they realized ahead of time that the Seal of the POTUS was needed they could have asked for it from the WH forward team, but it looks like it was a last minute addition and time was a factor (at least that is what is being claimed).

Unless there is actual EVIDENCE to the contrary, I see no reason to doubt it was a mistake. A very VISIBLE mistake.

Sometimes last minute changes come about and corners are cut. Sometimes it works out, and sometimes it doesn't, and sometimes it becomes a disaster. This is in the last category as far as the PR goes.

I do enjoy the Trumptards trying to work out if they should be supporting the troll or turning into snowflakes.
That base has almost zero original thoughts, its all follow the leader at all costs. baa

Better to have a sense of humor than to get wound up over pointless stuff. But hey, if you like when people push your buttons that's your thing.

When your person is in power it becomes a sacred cow and all aspects of it must be loved and adored or else you are treasonous and must be executed.

I would say we burn them in effigy but I'd prefer if they burned them right here in my home town, less travel for me.

That's highly laudable, we need to keep an eye on the carbon footprint with all the surplus traitor-pollutants in the air.
