Aide fired over double-headed golfing eagle seal

An aide for Turning Point USA has been reportedly fired over a doctored presidential seal projected on a wall behind President Trump at a TPUSA rally on Tuesday.

The seal includes imagery apparently designed to mock the president over his alleged ties to Russia and love of golf.

Gavino Garay has more.


Aide fired over double-headed golfing eagle seal

How did a double-headed eagle resembling the one on Russia's coat of arms end up on the U.S. presidential seal at an event for President Trump?

And why is it clutching a set of golf clubs -- instead of arrows - in its talons?

That's a question that has White House officials baffled.

President Trump walked on stage in front of the doctored seal at a Teen Student Action Summit on Tuesday, apparently unaware of the image behind him.

An audiovisual aide for conservative student group Turning Point USA has been fired since the incident, which CNN reported was the result of a Google search mistake.

A White House official said - quote - "We never saw the seal in question before it appeared in the video...The White House had no knowledge of it."
