OneTermDonnie: Artist Who Created Fake Presidential Seal Used At Turning Point USA Event

When I read the news about the fake presidential seal displayed on the video screen of a Turning Point USA event idolizing trump, I went to youtube to watch a video of the opening minutes of the event.

The genuine presidential seal was centered in the middle of the screen. The fake seal was off to the left of the screen from the audience’s POV.

Familiar with graphic design, it was clear to me this was no mistake but something added with intent.

Design-wise, there’s no reason to add a second image of the seal off to the side when the genuine seal is centered in the middle of the screen.

The official excuse was someone on the A/V team was rushed and simply put up the wrong image accidentally.

I did not buy it.

It doesn’t wash because they already had the correct image and if they wanted to duplicate that image all they had to do was use the same digital file – they didn’t need to search for another image.

The Washington Post has reported an update indicating the person responsible for displaying the fake seal has been fired.

Yet it raises the question:

Who originally designed this pictorial condemnation of the White House Occupant?

Designer: OneTermDonnie inktale.com/…

It’s really well done — so well done that it fooled White House staffers who are supposed to review everything displayed at one of the Occupant’s events.

When you look closely at the design you can see:

The double-headed eagle is from Russia’s coat of arms.

There’s a set of golf clubs in one of the eagle’s claws.

There’s money grasped in the other eagle’s claw.

A set of Russian hammer/sickle emblems replaces the stars on the flag chevron between the eagle’s wings.

And best of all, instead of “E pluribus unum” on the banner above the eagle’s head, it reads:

“45 es un títere,” Spanish for “45 is a puppet.”  

Spin.com tracked down the original designer: OneTermDonnie

“Although no one is sure who managed to get the image past event staff, the doctored seal resembles merchandise sold by an artist with the handle “OneTermDonnie.” SPIN reached out to the artist to ask if this was in fact their design and if they knew how the fake seal ended up getting used during a presidential photo op. We’ll update if we hear back.

This needs to be on a shirt and sold on Bernie Sanders Web site. I mean, that’s what Trump would do.

Don’t be surprised if Trump himself starts selling them, remember this is the man who is indirectly profiting off of caged children in concentration camps.

It is very good and accurately displays the sentiment, of most of the American people towards Trump as president.

. …….SHOT BEFORE SUNDOWN… .,That “double eagle “ was worn by the last monarch of Russia, “Romanov “before he was assonated, in 1917 . It’s why he and his family were assonated . A cruel regime. Replaced by a (far worse )regime . …It symbolized the dual “Roman Empire”. ….It’s an “extreme tie “to Russia. Don’t let anyone tell us Trump and his trash , we’re not aware of it . Deliberately calculated to confuse the Americans and send ….a message to Russia , from Trump, that he ( Trump ), still has their back , and the plan is… Read more »
