Trump speaks in front of fake presidential seal mysteriously manipulated to feature Russian eagles and golf clubs

Trump speaks in front of fake presidential seal mysteriously manipulated to feature Russian eagles and golf clubsDonald Trump appeared at a right-wing rally in front of a fake presidential seal, doctored to make apparently satiric references to Russia and golf.The tweaked image flashed up on a screen behind the president as he spoke to a summit hosted by the conservative group Turning Point USA in Washington earlier this week.The normally solitary bald eagle was seen with two heads, made to resemble the two-headed bird on the official Russian coat of arms in a mocking nod to Mr Trump’s woes with investigations into Moscow’s election meddling.The symbolic bird also showed up clutching a bag of golf clubs – evidently a joke about the president’s fondness for spending so much time on the links.Both the White House and Turning Point USA said they were unaware of why or how the altered image appeared on the screen.A spokesman for Turning Point USA told The Washington Post it was a “last-minute A/V [audio/visual] mistake” after the newspaper first highlighted the doctored seal.“I can’t figure out who did it yet. I don’t know where they got the image from,” he added, explaining they organisation was still try to determine who was responsible and where they got the image from.> Seriously?? > How did Russia’s national symbol end up on a presidential seal at a trump event? t.co/z6omAXnz6q pic.twitter.com/u8Baym73fM> > — Olga Lautman (@olgaNYC1211) > > July 25, 2019Richard Painter, who served as the George W Bush administration’s chief White House ethics lawyer, told the Post: “To let someone project something on the screen that isn’t controlled by the White House is pretty stupid.”He added: “Someone is going to be getting in trouble, but they got one heck of a good laugh out of it.”Mr Painter explained that First Amendment freedom of expression rights allowed people to parody the official presidential seal.Kathleen Clark, legal professor at Washington University, said: “Was someone at Turning Point trolling Trump? I just think Putin would probably approve.”

Dominican Republic deaths: Tourist becomes eighth American to mysteriously die at Caribbean holiday destination

Dominican Republic deaths: Tourist becomes eighth American to mysteriously die at Caribbean holiday destinationThe FBI has been called in to help investigate the deaths of eight American tourists in the Dominican Republic.One possible line of inquiry reportedly being looked into is whether bootleg alcohol is to blame for the spate of deaths and illnesses in resorts at the popular Caribbean holiday destination.Some of those who died are reported to have consumed alcohol from the minibar in their hotel room before their deaths – however it is not known whether there is any connection at this stage.Officials in the Dominican Republic have said the deaths over the last year are isolated incidents and that the country is still a safe destination.Leyla Cox, 53, became the eighth American to die on the island after she was found dead in her hotel room at Excellence Resort in Punta Cana on 10 June, just a day after her birthday, her family said.The MRI technician’s son Will Cox said his family did not know the cause of his mother’s death and that her body had not yet been returned to her home in Staten Island, New York.Bride-to-be Yvette Monique Sport, 51, of Pennsylvania, was the first tourist to die after drinking from a minibar at Bahia Principe hotel in Punta Cana in June 2018.A month later, David Harrison, 45, of Maryland, died from an apparent heart attack at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Punta Cana.In April this year, Robert Bell Wallace, 67, from California, reportedly fell ill and died four days later after drinking a whisky at the same Hard Rock Hotel. That same month, John Corcoran, the 60-year-old brother of TV star Barbara Corcoran, who appears on America’s version of Dragons’ Den, died from an apparent heart attack while holidaying on the island.In May, Miranda Schaup-Werner, 41, from Pennsylvania, checked into the Luxury Bahia Principe Bouganville with her husband.She is said to have fallen ill after having a drink from the minibar in their room and died a short while later.Five days later, Edward Holmes, 63, and Cynthia Day, 49, were found dead in their room in neighbouring Grand Bahia Principe resort.Excess fluid in the lungs was listed among the causes of their deaths in preliminary reports, according to NBC news.The US embassy in the Dominican Republic said the FBI had been called in to carry out toxicology reports, but that the results could take up to 30 days.It said in a statement last week: “These incidents are tragic and we offer our deepest condolences to those personally impacted.“Dominican authorities have asked for FBI assistance for further toxicology analysis on the recent Bahia Principe, La Romana, cases and our FBI colleagues tell us that those results may take up to 30 days. “We ask everyone to be patient while these investigations run their course.”Francisco Garcia, the country’s tourism minister, called the deaths “isolated incidents” earlier this month and said that the Dominican Republic was a “safe destination”.
