Seattle TV station staffer fired for doctoring Trump speech

A staffer at a local Fox station was axed for allegedly doctoring footage of President Trump’s oval office address — causing the commander-in-chief’s tongue to droop out of his mouth and making his skin appear bright orange on air.

A side-by-side comparison of the speech that aired live on CNN Tuesday night and what was broadcast later on FOX Q13 shows the blatant manipulation.

The clip’s colors look more saturated, adding a fiery tangerine hue to Trump’s skin.

In the Q13 footage, the president’s tongue also appears altered — like it was made rest on his lower lip for an unusually long time between sentences.

“This does not meet our editorial standards and we regret if it is seen as portraying the president in a negative light,” Q13 news director Erica Hill told The Seattle Times early Thursday.

The station didn’t identify the fired editor.
