Trump Delivered Speech In Front Of Fake Presidential Seal Saying ’45 Is A Puppet’
Donald Trump just got trolled and didn’t even realize it. This week, the president took to the stage at the Marriott Marquis hotel in Washington, D.C., to speak to thousands of young supporters at the Turning Point USA conference.
There was just something odd about the presidential seal that was being projected right behind Trump on stage.
Instead of the bald eagle featured in the official seal of the president of the United States, the image featured a double-headed eagle, which bears a striking resemblance to the one on the official coat of arms of the Russian Federation.
Below you can see the differences between the United States seal and the Russian seal:
And here’s the seal that was behind Trump at the event:
The seal shows a fistful of dollars held in the eagle’s claw on the left of the image, and a series of hammer and sickle designs in place of the stars on the US flag in the middle of the seal.
The Washington Post first noticed the discrepancies. The White House told the publication that officials had not seen the image before Trump appeared onstage.
Citing a reader, The Post said the fake seal resembled one being sold online in which the US’s Latin motto “E pluribus unum,” which means “Out of many, one,” has been replaced by the Spanish words “45 es un titere.” This roughly translates into English as “45 is a puppet.”
