Somedays there isn’t a whole lot to smile about, but on other days, when activists get the better of things, we get to smile a bit.

This week Trump addressed a crowd of Republican student activists at a ‘Turning Point USA‘ event.  Turning Point is a political action non-profit for teenage conservatives…so you can imagine how boring and Jesus filled their meetups are.  Anyway, some brilliant and devious photoshop artist managed to change the Whitehouse Presidential Seal that Trump was speaking in front of to a seal with the two-headed Russian eagle, and they changed ‘e pluribus unum,’ to, “45 es un titere,” which is Spanish for “45 is a puppet.”  The artist presumably wrote that bit in Spanish in order guarantee that no one in the Trump team could read it.   The arrows normally in the eagles clutches were changed to golf clubs, and the olive branch was changed to crumpled up money.

The Washington Post asked a Turning Point USA spokesman about the snafu, (I like to picture the spokesperson of Turning Point USA as an 18 years old student with bad skin and a lot of anxiety) “It was a last-minute A/V mistake — and I can’t figure out where the breakdown was — but it was a last minute throw-up, and that’s all it was,” the Turning Point USA spokesman told WaPo, adding that he didn’t know who was to blame or where the image was from.

Bravo to whoever pulled it off.  Especially considering that this week Robert Muller testified in front of Congress about how Russia interfered with our presidential election, and how Trump and his cronies obstructed justice to cover up their involvement.
