A fake presidential seal appeared behind President Trump onstage at an event for conservative student group Turning Point USA this week.
The fake seal was only briefly visible as Trump walked onstage, replaced by the authentic one for the remainder of the speech, but an aide to TPUSA has reportedly been fired over what was either a startling error or a deliberate prank.
Here are four differences between the genuine seal and the one that appeared behind the president on Tuesday.
While the presidential seal features a standard eagle, the one behind Trump this week featured a double-headed eagle. Double-headed eagles are typically associated with empires and have appeared in other countries iconography as well, including the coats of arms of the Austrian Empire and Serbia.
Resemblance to the Russian federation coat of arms
In addition, the eagle makes the false seal bear a resemblance to the coat of arms of the Russian federation, which is itself based on the coat of arms used in Czarist Russia. The original double-headed eagle coat of arms was discontinued after the Russian Revolution in 1917 in favor of the recognizable Soviet hammer and sickle imagery but the eagle was restored in 1992 after the dissolution of the USSR.
The standard presidential seal bears the national motto E pluribus unum, Latin for out of many, one. The fake seal behind Trump at the TPUSA event instead featured the phrase 45 es un títere, Spanish for 45 is a puppet. Trump famously pushed back against his then-opponent Hillary Clintons characterization of him as a puppet of Russian president Vladimir Putin at the 2016 presidential debates.
The eagles claws
While the eagle on the real seal bears several arrows in its right talon, the one on the doctored seal is bearing golf clubs, an apparent reference to Trumps frequent visits to the several golf clubs he owns. Trump has spent 210 days at his golf properties while in office, according to NBC's tracker.
It says someone was fired. There should have been more, it’s still not too late.
Someone created it, but someone else put it up there.
That is the problem. Trump has too many people around him, who are his enemies.
And we’d be laughing our butts off here if a similar thing had been done to a Democrat President.
Guys a pot-stirring little anarchist bastard. Likes making chaos while wearing his cute little grin. Basking in his notoriety, im sure. Pure sleaze.
Did you mean 90%? Obama was always playing golf.
There are many who believe that the chant “Send Her Back” was initiated by Dem provocateurs at the Trump rally.
I believe in the video it is also heard that “Eagle” is inbound. “Eagle” was Billy Jeffs name.
Here is what it said in the article:
“The fake seal behind Trump at the Turning Point event instead featured the phrase 45 es un títere, Spanish for 45 is a puppet. Trump famously pushed back against his then-opponent Hillary Clintons characterization of him as a puppet of Russian President Vladimir Putin at the 2016 presidential debates.”
Real low-life who would do this.
I’ve thought about the TP thing myself and the need to change the name. It does open the organization to ridicule.
Kirk should know better.
Theyd join liberal protests with hilarious signs .
I thought it was well done ... and funny.
I think thats funny.
Not only funny but pointed out weakness in the security procedures. The question
is will the authorities take appropriate action to correct the procedures.
Just looked at it on a bigger screen, and I think youre right. It does look like títere (puppet).
The thing is that it would never happen to a Dem.
It’s neither. Desecration of a national symbol isn’t a crime, and it’s not vandalism either because it’s just a projected computer graphic.
Nobody get in there and sabotaged anything Mission Impossible style. It was simply inserted into the digital “slide show” for the event. Honestly, it was most likely done by whomever originally created the slide show for the event weeks in advance.
I’d bet a lot gets done (work wise) on the golf course...now when Obama played golf I’ll bet lots of stuff got done too...nefarious that is
Not for a Presidential appearance.
Somebody said it says '45 es un titere' in Spanish (45 is a puppet).
I’ve given my share of presentations too and the only one who “reviewed” my slide show ahead of time was me. This was put on by a bunch of college kids, not a major corporation that has people to review and double check to make sure that the presentation was in line with corporate interests.
I’ve also been at a number of events involving the secret service in a variety of contexts, they focus on the President’s safety, not whether a student is going to put a practical joke image on a laptop or thumb drive. That’s not their job.
No. Almost ten percent means almost one in ten days.
