holy fark that's low

I'm pretty sure it's actually a cut and paste job.  A laughably bad one.
 
2020-06-25 9:48:42 AM  
Not that it will do any good, but just reported it.

The stench of desperation flop-sweat coming from the White House is wafting across the US.
 
2020-06-25 9:56:16 AM  
Desperation is a stinky cologne.
 
2020-06-25 9:57:07 AM  
The comments are all just about how terrible the edit is. That's great
 
2020-06-25 9:59:35 AM  
I guess they did this to protest the dems' ad where they made it sound like Trump said the coronavirus was a hoax. I mean, he did say it, and he's suggested it for months, so it's hardly the same thing.
 
2020-06-25 10:09:51 AM  
Wow.  These people are terrible at absolutely everything.
 
2020-06-25 10:53:36 AM  
I mean, I give them a potato for effort....

How do you report a tweet?
 
2020-06-25 10:54:38 AM  
Don't believe your lying eyes or ears unless we tell you to.

They also spent yesterday saying that actually it was Obama and Biden calling it Kung Flu first.

There evidence: an early 2010's VA hospital ad campaign that said "be a kung flu fighter" about avoiding the spread of the influenza virus which is not, in fact, racially coded.

That's... well.. something. I guess we know which account Parscale has access to.

This is Iranian photoshop department level of incompetence.

Can we turn false light into a federal criminal offense?  This shiat needs to stop.

No, Jack Dorsey may possibly add a "this might not be entirely accurate, but I will leave it as is because he is still your President" disclaimer on it.

LeftisRightisWrong: How do you report a tweet?


Upper right hand corner of Tweet has a drop down menu
 
2020-06-25 10:57:50 AM  
Huh... Can't find that tweet anymore for the life of me. The media won't even play.

/ If it looks like poo, smells like poo, plops like poo, and tastes like poo...

Republicans always lie.
 
2020-06-25 10:57:58 AM  
Oh - 4 seconds of audio only. Unlike the many times Trump has said it openly on video and live broadcasts.

Gee - guess I better change my vote to idiot.

not to mention effective!

There's a "It's something else" reason, which is oddly appropriate.

Clearly the best people working for Trump's campaign...

*snert*
 
2020-06-25 10:59:42 AM  
I am sure their argument is that Trump calling it a hoax is out of context too: Trump clearly didn't mean that COVID-19 did not exist, he merely meant that the Democrats spreading fear when the Trump administration had it under control and it wasn't going to be an issue was the hoax.

...no, they can't explain why the latter is any more accurate than the former considering everything that has happened since then.
 
2020-06-25 10:59:51 AM  
It's only going to get worse, at this point I'm not ruling out anything.  I'm fearful the "October Surprise" will be the DOJ sending goons to arrest Biden for unspecified charges and, depending on the result, holding him until after the election is over.
 
2020-06-25 10:59:55 AM  
They must have gotten some pointers from James O'Keefe.

It won't swing an election, but many weak-minded members of the Republican base have seen their views strengthened by similar fake videos.  In fact, Liar James O'Keefe built an entire career out of making such videos.
 
2020-06-25 11:01:25 AM  
Okay. Random edits of Trump statements is officially a GO!
 
2020-06-25 11:01:34 AM  
Why is this tweet even still up?

Do your job every time or it doesn't mean anything, Twitter.

Joe Biden's op-ed on the Trump White House response to COVID19.

WRITTEN ON JANUARY FRIGGIN' 27th.

Joe's prose leaves little to the imagination.

Doctor Funkenstein: Wow.  These people are terrible at absolutely everything.


No one, with any skill, of any kind, will work for Mango Mass Murderer.  Since at least the 80s.

The only exception is people who are stupid, *and* criminal *and* greedy enough to think they see an angle through which they will make enormous profit.

And here we are. 125,000 dead Americans and JUST GETTING STARTED.

Republican operatives have been doing this since long before they sold their souls to Putin.  Remember ACORN?

There's no need.  The idiocy that spews from his face hole  is far worse than anyone could possibly manufacture.

What's everyone reporting this under as manipulated media doesn't seem to be a category?
 
2020-06-25 11:06:30 AM  
I thought this kind of thing was supposed to get a "Manipulated Media" tag from Twitter mods.

"Crap!  Trump has squandered the last three-and-a-half years of his presidency by being incompetent, evil and golfing.  How do we convince people to vote for him in November?"

"I've got it!  Just take the things Trump said and say Biden said them!"

"BRILLIANT!"

They probably paid a few bucks for the ad. The rest of the money was laundered to the Trump family.

I love how some of the MAGAts in the twitter thread are trying to claim that it is "sarcasm" and that it is "making fun of the edited video of Trump".

The typical "if you were offended or it was a lie, then it was a joke".
