You can follow the kid leaning in, you see the hat held out, you see Trump take it, and the boy stand back up. Then Trump tosses it back to the boy and the boy catches it with his left hand.
Yet, the false Politico tweet is still up and there has been no later tweet explaining the truth.
Moreover, if you check the original Politico video, you may notice there’s an edit. Right as Trump reaches for the hat, but before he takes it. Then you see him signing the hat.
Why would that be? Why would you need an edit in such a short video, especially when you’re trying to make such a point? Only one reason: to disconnect, to make it harder to recognize that the boy who handed it to him was the same boy.
They really aren’t even trying to mask the bias…
