It is so sad. We here in VVO land all know he's nuts. What I don't get is how his supporters continue with such a flagrant lie. Everyone knows he said Mexico would pay for the wall over and over again.
Because Fox News won't show the above clip. Their news is slanted to fit the story they want to tell. Meanwhile, Trump has a former Fox staffer working in the White House press office. Basically Fox is the propaganda arm of this administration.

To be fair, all news channels slant their stories to fit the narrative they want to tell. That's why there really is no one reporting news these days but a deluge of op-ed pieces.

An employee at Fox Q13, a local station in Seattle, has been fired after the station broadcast an altered clip of Donald Trump's TV address

The video was changed to make it look as if Trump was sticking his tongue out languidly between sentences. In addition, the colors in the video look more saturated, leading the president’s skin and hair to appear more orange.

During the speech, Trump said, “Hopefully, we can rise above partisan politics in order to support national security,” before briefly licking his lips and continuing to speak.

In the video broadcast on Q13, it appears that Trump lets his tongue hang out, resting it on his lower lip for an unusually long time.

“This does not meet our editorial standards and we regret if it is seen as portraying the president in a negative light,” Q13 news director Erica Hill wrote in an emailed statement early Thursday.

Later Thursday morning, Hill released another statement saying, “We’ve completed our investigation into this incident and determined that the actions were the result of an individual editor whose employment has been terminated.”

It is unclear whether the employee created the doctored video or just allowed it to go on air.
Here's a side-by-side of the real and the doctored clip. In addition to the changes noted in the article, it seems apparent to me that Trump's mouth is enlarged generally.


As funny as it is by itself, obviously a news broadcast is not the right place for this kind of joke.

I'm okay with reporters pointing out how ridiculous Trump is by asking him if he's going to do this or that crazy thing next. Any of it is entirely possible and we have a right to know just how crazy and stupid he is.
