He's having a ball-cupping party in Texas right now. :shifty: One of the speakers said that firearms are coming over the border from Mexico. :scratch: We already have plenty of those, why would they need to be smuggled from Mexico?

Because all the American firearms are owned by responsible gun owners, criminals need to source theirs elsewhere. Don't you know anything?

‘Deepfakes’ in action: Seattle TV station accused of doctoring Trump speech video

10 Jan, 2019

Image

As the nation tuned in to President Trump’s national address on border security, one Seattle TV station apparently manipulated its coverage on the fly, editing the footage to show Trump sticking out his tongue at viewers.

In a side-by-side comparison, Q13 Fox in Seattle appears to have edited its coverage of Trump’s address, turning the president’s skin color a ludicrous shade of orange. In between sentences, the station seems to have doctored the footage to show Trump sticking out his tongue and licking his lips.

What's more likely: Q13 Fox Seattle live-doctoring Trump, or RT post-doctoring their coverage so it can write up a fake news article for people like you to disseminate?

Apparently it was a station worker who was subsequently fired.

That surprises me, but fair enough.

It's certainly less disrespectful to the office of the Presidency than most of what Trump does. Trump himself has not earned any respect, and I think the US could do with more (non-violent, of course) civil disobedience right now, if it wants to get to the other side of this horror show in better shape. Trump is so wrapped in his ego that ridicule can act as a powerful weapon to fight back against his narcissistic tendencies.

It’s not clear to me that the edited version was aired as a live broadcast though.

“Congratulations Mr. President, glad you interrupted our lives so you could read your tweets out loud,” he said, which was arguably not a far cry from what really happened.

If accurate, this report is stunning. It makes me speculate whether the shutdown has more to do than just the wall.

In the days after President Trump fired James B. Comey as F.B.I. director, law enforcement officials became so concerned by the president’s behavior that they began investigating whether he had been working on behalf of Russia against American interests, according to former law enforcement officials and others familiar with the investigation.

The inquiry carried explosive implications. Counterintelligence investigators had to consider whether the president’s own actions constituted a possible threat to national security. Agents also sought to determine whether Mr. Trump was knowingly working for Russia or had unwittingly fallen under Moscow’s influence.
