Right Wing Staffer Canned Over Fake Presidential Seal

The Hill reports:

An employee for the conservative group Turning Point USA has reportedly been fired in wake of an incident in which President Trump appeared in front of an altered presidential seal at an event hosted by the organization.

An unnamed Turning Point USA source told CNN that an audiovisual aide responsible for the seal has been dismissed. The source emphasized to the news network that there was ” zero malicious intent” behind the image.

A source familiar with the event claims that the seal appeared on screen because of a Google search mistake. TPUSA had reportedly been planning to use event branding on background screens during Trump’s speech. But the team was told just hours before the event to replace the branding with a presidential seal.

Totally an accident. But he’s fired anyway. Uh huh.

As I reported this morning, the seal shows the two-headed Russian eagle, a set of golf clubs, and the Spanish-language message “Trump Is A Puppet.”

Gear bearing the fake seal is available online from a seller calling himself “One Term Donnie.” T-shirts, posters, etc.
