“While speaking at a summit hosted by the conservative organization Turning Point USA on Tuesday, President Donald Trump appeared in front of a satirical presidential seal that was altered without his knowledge to include references to Russian manipulation,” as People magazine and other media is reporting.
“The altered seal, which was first reported by the Washington Post, featured an eagle with two heads — resembling the two-headed bird on the Russian coat of arms.
“The scroll above the eagle appeared to read “45 es un titere,” or “45 is a puppet” in Spanish, according to USA Today. (The scroll normally contains the U.S. motto “E pluribus unum.”)
“The left talons of the eagle, which clasp 13 arrows in the real presidential seal, instead held a set of golf clubs.
“The alterations were in apparent reference to the president’s frequent golf outings and the accusations about his relationship with Russia and Russia’s president, Vladimir Putin.
“According to the Post, the seal appeared on a giant screen behind Trump after he was first introduced to the stage at the Turning Point event.
“CNN reports that the individual responsible for the seal was a member of Turning Point USA’s audiovisual team who was searching last-minute for a high-quality image of the presidential seal ahead of Trump’s remarks.
“They have since been fired, according to the network.”
