Hells Bells It's All Fake: Trump Signs Blank Paper in Hospital

Mish

Supposedly, Trump is working hard today in the hospital. Let's take a closer look at what's really going on.

Let me take you down
'Cause I'm going to Strawberry Fields 
Nothing is real 
And nothing to get hung about 
Strawberry Fields forever 

Living is easy with eyes closed 
Misunderstanding all you see 
It's getting hard to be someone 
But it all works out 
It doesn't matter much to me

Nothing is Real

That perfectly sums up Trump

Wow, cant even photoshop well...Is there no limit to the incompetence of this team? It begs the question, can trump even sign his name? Why did it need to be faked?

I want to see trump in a townhall or public event asap and not carefully edited interview on fox news.

Those were the Penske files!

@Mish you missed his video at 1:04. He coughed and they edited it out

Has their been an administration that has lied more to the American people. Not ony do they lie but they lie when its not even necessary. I fail to understand why even a single person in this country thinks Donald Trump is honest.

Expect to hear about the world's fastest and easiest recovery from COVID...right up until the moment he stops breathing...then the narrative will be up for grabs, and Pence and his handlers can decide how to spin it.

Does that sound jaded? Well.....compulsive lying is the most dependable behavior Trump exhibits....he's lied pretty much every day since he started running for POTUS.

It's much more difficult to fake anything with so much recorded on the internet.

Great song ref also!

forgot to photoshop out the orig reflection from the hand...which would not be there w/the binder blocking it

Yes it would, and claiming it wouldn't does your credibility no good, Oh random Tweeter. Your heart's in the right place but your grasp of optics (the physics kind, not the PR kind) could use a little work.

So what if it's staged?
Maybe he's working from bed in his pajamas, with clutter all around.
So his "people" said, "let's have something more dignified for the cameras".
No harm in that . . . .

Another NothingBurger.

I'll take the contrarian position on this one.

At first I thought the binder wasn't showing in the reflection, but on closer inspection it is. On the other side, we see tops of the hands in the reflection, so I think the angle would match here.

Plus it's a stupid thing to fake. "Here, someone give me a folder real quick so it looks like I'm working."

It would be the easiest thing in the world to have an actual folder. Easier than photoshopping.

my brother is a trump supporter. he knows he lies. he doesn't care. Trump gave him a policy he liked. After that nothing matters.

Ignore EXIF data. People concluding anything interesting from EXIF data are likely to be those who found meaning in file time-stamps on Hillary's email.

Mish, glad you were minding the store on this while I did my 90 minute run @ beautiful Danada trails this afternoon - Thanks!

I count 30 of the white-wall-dark-jacket pictures in this posting and 26 of the wood-wall-white-shirt pictures. That many images makes both them and the comments true and accurate.

On the other hand, I just wasted 15 minutes of my life trying to find the actual images as represented by whatever cloud provider hosts the image files. No such luck. But, then, I have to run a separate browser for Twitter. And, it's telling that the Twitter postings copied here do not contain link-backs to what they talk about. "Telling" of the quality of the Twitter account generallly, that is, not necessarily of the quality of the content.

That said, I don't see the photo-shop that VirtualAnnette sees. I see the edge of a table. And, blank paper? Maybe. So what? I'd think it would be SOP to push a blank sheet of paper at POTUS for any picture meant for publication, unless the thing being signed is the reason for the picture.

So, yet another kerfuffle. Alternate headline: "US President has Photo-Op! Breaking news you need at 11!"

@Mish You know photography. What do you see in the pic that says "photo-shop"?

tRump may be laughing loudly behind the scene at those who actually believe he really had the covid19.

The NYT is running a story titled "Trump’s Treatment Suggests Severe Covid-19, Medical Experts Say"

Another story says that he might be released Monday. An incredibly fast recovery!

This should allow Trump to claim he really is a demigod who beat the virus in only 4 days. His followers will say "Told you so!". Watch for it...

He still looks too white for this to be a hoax. Do they not have a tanning bed at Walter Reed ?

Trump’s statement at Walter Reed Hospital

"It's been a very interesting journey, I learned a lot about COVID," Trump said in pre-recorded remarks. "I learned it by really going to school. This is the real school. This isn't the let's-read-the-book school, and I get it, and I understand it."

He then went for a joyride in a hermetically sealed vehicle, exposing the secret service agents with him, all for a photo op.
