An unnamed source from Turning Point USA claims to have fired an anonymous aide responsible for creating an altered seal showing an eagle similar to the Russian national emblem and holding a set of golf clubs, likely made to make President Donald Trump look bad as he spoke before cameras and a large audience, claiming there was “zero malicious intent.”
Earlier today, President Trump was caught speaking before a presidential seal that was altered to have a double headed eagle holding golf clubs, in what many would assume is a nod to the left’s fabled Russian hacking and their sudden distaste of a president who enjoys playing golf, even after they ignored President Barack Obama’s love of the sport.
The altered seal was present at a Turning Point USA event, and President Trump likely had no clue what was behind the podium he was speaking at.
Now, The Hill and CNN report that Turning Point USA claims the aide who supplied the fake seal has been fired, but maintain that there were no nefarious intentions at play behind the former aide’s actions.
An employee for the conservative group Turning Point USA has reportedly been fired following 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.“We’re sorry for the mix-up and meant no disrespect to the White House or the president or the advance team,” the TPUSA source told CNN.
According to The Hill, “A banner also read “45 es un titere,” Spanish for “45 is a puppet,” which was apparently “interpreted as a jab at the president for his relationship with Moscow and his love of golf.”
Turning Point USA, one of the best funded young conservative groups, staunchly maintains that the incident was purely an accident. There is no explanation, however, for why they would fire an employee for an honest mistake.
“One of our video team members did a Google Image search for a high-res png (file) presidential seal,” a source familiar with the incident said according to The Hill.
While Turning Point USA enjoys a comfortable relationship with the White House, they have previously been accused of stifling their activists.
Big League Politics spoke to former Turning Point USA representative and current Infowars personality Kaitlin Bennett last year:
Big League Politics spoke to student activist Kaitlin Bennett of Kent State University, who resigned her post as chapter president for the conservative organization Turning Point USA.
Bennett, a self-described “right-leaning libertarian,” clashed with the national organization over foreign policy issues, and did not feel like she had free reign to be creative with her headline-grabbing activism.
Do conservative student organizations — however well-intentioned — stifle viewpoints that deviate from the Republican party line at the expense of recruiting new members who might not be lever-pulling Republicans?
BLM Supporter Charged With Attempted Murder After Driving into Crowd of Trump Supporters in Parking Lot
A woman has been arrested and charged with attempted murder after driving through a crowd of Donald Trump supporters demonstrating in a Yorba Linda, California parking lot.
The Trump supporters had arrived in the conservative-leaning California city to counter a Breonna Taylor Black Lives Matter event. Conservatives and BLM protestors had opposed one another on opposite sides of a street, with the former hailing insults and some projectiles at the former.
The victims of the attack weren’t blocking a public roadway, a dangerous tactic that ANTIFA and Black Lives Matter militants have frequently used. They were standing in a parking lot.

The woman who was driving the white Nissan used in the attack was arrested by Orange County Sheriff’s Deputies shortly after the incident. Photography reveals she was wearing riot gear being used by nearby Black Lives Matter protestors who were active in the nominally conservative Orange County city.
The driver has been identified as Tatiana Turner of Long Beach. She’s been charged with assault with a deadly weapon and attempted murder.
It’s somewhat of a surprise that a leftist terrorist is being held accountable by the criminal justice system in California. It remains to be seen if Democrat-aligned prosecutors will attempt to drop the charges in the case, enabling Turner to get away with the vicious assault.
