Pro-Trumpers have already cited this information as "proof" that CNN targeted and blackmailed an innocent fifteen year-old boy, because this development retroactively erases the racist epithets that "HanAssholeSolo" (who listed his age as thirty-seven on his Reddit profile) had posted online. It also apparently negates the user explicitly taking credit for the animation after the President tweeted it.

Yeah, that was WAAAAAAY too detailed. Who cares? Even if it wasn't the Reddit guy's exact clip, it was based on the one he made. Story over.

The funny part is that he posted an apology for this thing on Reddit, and the mods deleted it. And people complain about Fark mods?
 
2017-07-05 05:05:23 PM  
If the gif/vid still originated from Reddit, as the article suspects, wouldn't the simpler, more tinfoil answer be that the redditor and the Trump administration had the same source file before uploading to either?

Also important that the 15 year old boy thing is their allegation: his account listed his age as 37 and CNN claims the person they spoke with was a middle aged man. They say you can't trust CNN because they are covering up that they blackmailed a poor LBGT teen to force him to recant his support for our president the monsters.

Not all of Trump's supporters are describing the act as "blackmail".

Some are describing it as "extortion".

Yeah.   And I believe he's the fist POTUS who appeared in a soft porn video.   Thankfully not as one of the stars, but happily appeared in a cameo.  But then, Melania is the first FLOTUS who has had her professional nudies on the front page of a paper.

As for the reddit user busted,  Shiatlord shiats his pants pretty much covers it for me.

You know, I've got to tell you, I find reddit better than Fark in many ways.  I can go into a subreddit like /r/AMATEURRADIO or /r/BLACKPOWDER or /r/MORSE or /r/TRADITIONALARCHERY, or, most revealingly, /r/SETI without some asshole coming in and posting anti-Trump shiat all over it.

Unlike in threads about those kinds of things here on Fark.

To be fair, he could still be lying about his age but 37 is not an age you lie about being when you are 15 (that would be 27) it is an age you lie about when you are 50.

Plus the middle age descriptor was coming from Yashar Ali so he might have it wrong. Have to love the people who think they tricked him into admitting that this is criminal blackmail that he corrected the description of HanAssholeSolo.

The important fact is that CNN stands accused of bullying and blackmailing a fifteen year-old boy. They could easily settle this matter by publishing the identity of the person. That they do not do so is evidence of their guilt.
