With apologies, of course, to Bubbanomics.
Trump's live address from the Oval Office Tuesday was a bizarre and mostly unproductive waste of America's collective evening, save for those gamblers who won big betting on how many lies Trump could tell in under ten minutes. But it looks like one local news editor in Seattle took it upon himself to liven up Trump's low-energy performance—by morphing the hell out of the president's face during the broadcast.
According to the Seattle Times, the doctored footage aired on Q13, Seattle's local Fox affiliate, and featured a stretched and distorted Trump, his skin an even more brilliant hue of orange, periodically rolling an oversized tongue around his lips like a Jabba the Hutt cosplayer.
Of course, the editor’s actions really are an inexcusable breach of journalistic ethics, but then again, the whole speech was a joke. Might as well treat it like one.
And be honest. If the above clip hadn’t shown the doctored footage side by side with the original, would you even have noticed? That’s pretty much how he appears in my nightmares anyway. And on the vinyl decals at the bottom of thousands of U.S. urinals.
