An editor for Q13 Fox in Seattle, Washington was fired from the TV station after editing President Donald Trump’s Oval Office Address to make the president seem fatter and more orange, and to create loops of the president taking breaths and licking his lips.
The edited clip aired during the station’s coverage of President Trump’s address, causing viewers to report the strange clip to local talk radio the next day. By the end of the day Thursday, Q13 confirmed they had terminated the editor’s employment, and said the video did not meet its editorial standards.
A local talk radio station, 770 KTTH, posted a side by side comparison to YouTube, playing the doctored clip from Q13 next to the version of the recording posted by CNN the same day. The comparison revealed edits that made President Trump’s skin appear more orange, his face more bulbous, and created unsettling loops of the president licking his lips and breathing heavily, appearing to stick his tongue out toward the camera for several seconds.
That comparison revealed the Q13 video creating a loop of the President licking his lips — making it seem bizarre and unbalanced — it also seems that someone distorted the President’s face and may have added an orange tone to his skin.
Less than a day after placing the editor responsible on leave pending an investigation, Q13 terminated his employment.
“We’ve completed our investigation into this incident and determined that the actions were the result of an individual editor whose employment has been terminated,” said Q13’s news director in a Thursday update.
President Trump made his case for strengthening border security through construction of a steel wall at the southern border on Tuesday night, and was somewhat overshadowed by the spectacle created by the awkward rebuttal provided by Senator Chuck Schumer and Representative Nancy Pelosi, who still remain unwilling to budge on the wall.
Arizona’s Paul Gosar Proposes Amending Coronavirus Package to Replace Pork with $10,000 Stimulus Checks
Gosar wants direct aid to the American people.
Representative Paul Gosar of Arizona has proposed that the federal government pay stimulus checks of $10,000 to Americans beleaguered by the coronavirus pandemic, adopting an approach that would prioritize direct payments to individuals over payments to state and local governments. Gosar’s Amendment, offered on Friday night, would also replace payments to extend federal unemployment benefits.
Only 9% of Pelosi’s $1.9 trillion “plan” is related to COVID-19.

As the American Rescue Plan currently stands, $1,400 stimulus checks to American taxpayers who filed less than $75,000 in income in 2018 make up $422 billion- a mere 22% of the total spending in the relief package. Gosar’s proposal would replace much of the questionable spending with direct relief.
If the federal government intends to go ‘all-in’ on deficit spending in response to the coronavirus recession, Gosar’s proposal would ensure that the money is spent directly on the livelihood of American taxpayers. Less than half of the spending of Biden’s stimulus is directly targeted towards taxpayers, with education, energy, transport and state governments receiving almost as much money as the American people under Biden’s $1.9 trillion plan.

Biden’s pork proposal can easily be retooled to prioritize direct spending to Americans, be it in the shape of stimulus checks or buffed unemployment benefits to Americans who have lost their jobs in the recession. Instead, the establishment Democrat has opted to prioritize payments to powerful lobby groups and corporate institutions.
The American Rescue Plan passed the House in a Friday night vote. Should the massive spending package fail to pass the Senate in budget reconciliation, congressional leaders may be left with no choice but to consider proposals such as Gosar that replace federal spending with direct relief to the American people.
