In the video, President Trump is filmed from behind as a young black girl approaches him. The president bends down and places his arm on her shoulder. The girl steps back and holds her phone up to the president. Along the way, she responds, “You’re a disgrace to the world.”
The short video went viral over the weekend, and it currently has hundreds of thousands of retweets on Twitter. There’s only one problem… the video is a fake.
The video clip is taken from the Comedy Central series “The President Show.” The clip going viral isn’t of Trump. It’s of Trump impersonator and show host Anthony Atamanuik. Furthermore, the clip is cropped to hide Comedy Central’s logo.
