A Seattle TV station has fired an editor after airing video footage of President Donald Trump’s Oval Office address on immigration that was altered. The footage was changed to make Trump look bad to viewers.
FOX affiliate Q13 broadcast video from the Tuesday night speech that showed a more orange-toned Trump with his tongue hanging out languidly from his mouth after making a statement.

The video’s filtered colors look more saturated and the tongue appears doctored.
Q13 news director Erica Hill said: “This does not meet our editorial standards and we regret if it is seen as portraying the president in a negative light.”
Hill also confirmed on Thursday that the station investigated the incident and fired the editor involved.
Trump in his televised address had urged for border wall funding amid the federal government shutdown that’s lasted nearly three weeks.
Judge for yourself.
