Glenn Beck’s ‘Orange’ Trump Face Lives on with Fox Affiliate Q13
If you throw an icky orange color on a completely Manufactured Monster, Fox affiliate Q13 Television in Seattle, will see that it sticks.

An orange face was originally created for Donald Trump by smart aleck showman Glenn Beck on April 29, 2016.  Almost three years later, Q13 recycled it to ridicule President Trump on the night of his Humanitarian and Security Crisis at the Southern Border address to the nation.

Update: Q13 FOX staffer fired after TV station airs altered Trump video

No Cheetos necessary this time out when a distorted face of the president, complete with a large, exaggerated lolling tongue would do.

Kudos are in order that savvy Gateway Pundit seized upon a Jeff Wallis Twitter about the doctored video and ran with it.

“The video was captured by viewer Jeff Wallis who pinged Seattle talk radio host Todd Herman with KTTH-AM 770. (Gateway Pundit, Jan. 9, 2019)

“The video starts with an excerpt of Trump giving his address, however his face is made to look orange colored and his mouth has been distorted with video software.

“When the Q13 anchor starts talking near the end of the clip the video of Trump is further altered so that he is repeatedly licking his lips with an exaggerated large tongue.

“Herman posted a side-by-side comparison of an unaltered tape of Trump’s speech.

“Herman reported at KTTH that Q13 has suspended the video editor while it investigates.”

Convenient for Q13, but not for the public it duped, that the video editor remains unidentified.

“The Q13 news director told Herman: (Gateway Pundit)

“We are investigating this to determine what happened,” said Q13’s news director. “This does not meet our editorial standards and we regret if it is seen as portraying the President in a negative light. The editor responsible for editing the footage is being placed on leave while we investigate further.” (Gateway Pundit)

“No further statements about the incident from Q13 were found online.”

Editorial standards? WHAT editorial standards?

Some of the comments that follow the Gateway Pundit story indicate that some of their peeps are not as stupid as Q13 seems to think that they are.

“If it had been Obama, they would have put a halo over his head with a subliminal sound track of angels singing,” wrote Basil Brown.

“It’s called color grading and CNN have been using it since before Trump was elected to bolster their deceptive ‘orange man bad’ narrative,” wrote another.

Glenn Beck, who moved from CNN to Fox News before nosediving on his own Internet TV show and is now a co-founder of Blaze TV, never walked back his orange face creation of Trump.

That’s because Trump’s wholly manufactured orange face went viral world wide and is impossible to walk back.

In any case, don’t expect to see a Q13 story about a doctored video of Trump giving his Oval Office address to the nation during the intro to their 10 p.m., Wednesday night ‘NEWS’ anywhere on Blaze TV.
