Skip to comments.How did Trump end up in front of a presidential seal doctored to include a Russian symbol?

At first glance, there was nothing unusual about President Trumps introduction Tuesday at Turning Point USAs student summit. In many ways, it mirrored the production style that has become synonymous with Trumps campaign rallies.
Following a 12-minute video illustrating Trumps rise to the presidency, music blared as the presidents name flashed across a giant screen in a bold shade of red. Trump took the stage and soaked in the raucous cheers from hundreds of young supporters packed inside the Marriott Marquis in Washington.
Charlie Kirk, Turning Points outspoken founder and executive director, was on his left. But the image on the screen to Trumps right captured in dozens of photos and videos from the event is less familiar.
The image almost resembles the official seal of the president; but a closer examination reveals alterations that seem to poke fun at the presidents golfing penchant and accusations that he has ties to Russia. Neither the White House nor Turning Point know how it got there or who created it.

the article claims, “The two-headed eagle also appears at the bottom of the logo for Turnberry, Trumps luxury resort and golf course in Scotland. “
but, granted it’s small and my eyes aren’t what they used to be, but I’m only seeing a single lion on the Turnberry logo seen at the top of the home page here:
Someone went through some effort, can’t believe that it’s not easy to find out who as that’s the kind of thing that’s usually shared on social media.
The Russian double headed eagle and holding golf clubs in one talon. I assume that the president’s advance team has learned a lesson that should have been learned about 3 years ago - control all the digital displays while POTUS is in the room.
As far as pranks go, pretty harmless. Yuck it up and move on.
The same two-headed eagle was used by Austria-Hungary. And Albania (see the Albanian flag).
Its origin comes from when the Roman empire was divided between East and West (Rome and Byzantium), so that the single Roman eagle was divided into a two-headed one.
Gotta admit it ... thats pretty clever and well executed.
Remember, it isn’t a joke if nobody gets it.
For the Commies; this is a huge propaganda victory. To most regular people it’s a lying prank.
My guess is that some random person created the fake seal as a meme many months ago, it ended up on google images, and when this event came about, a young AV team graphic designer for this event did a search for a U.S. Seal and found this fake one, not really knowing how it should look, and grabbed it. Dumb but understandable, in these editor-free days.
Some audio visual person with TDS was able to get that image up there. They were probably trolling the President and had a good laugh momentarily, but unless theyre trying to get a job in Hollywood, that was a costly career mistake.
To me ith double headed eagle is the symbol of the Byzantine Empire. That nation originated the double headed eagle national symbol and the Russians borrowed it.
For people who are outraged about Ivankas white dog, I can see how this could send them through the roof.
Next week I'm guessing that he will tell us how he sent that number in an email for Hillary to use in her impeachment of Trump.
The guy is a liberal nutjob (please don't contact the Department of Redundancy). One second he'll be talking about how guns should be outlawed. The next second he is bragging about all the guns he has. He claims he is a former FBI guy.
It’s the Roman Double Eagle.
The same Double Eagle is on the thrones of medieval Holy Roman emperors.
An Hispanic Trump hater is reportedly behind the design, so that was intentional
This guy in question by chance david hogg’s dad?
Someone on Turning Point USAs AV Club is a mole and wanted to punk the President. In due time they will be found and could even be expelled from Turning Point USA AV Club.
That was fast!
