A staffer at a Fox News affiliate has been fired after he doctored footage of President Trump's national address on border security.

According to The Daily Wire:

Post a doctored video of Trump on Twitter and you'll probably end up getting more (left-wing) followers, but air one on live television and you'll get fired.

That's what appears to have happened to a staffer at Fox News affiliate Q13 in Seattle after the now-former employee aired what was clearly an altered video of President Trump giving his first ever address to the nation from the Oval Office on the issue of border security.

The video the staffer aired was altered to give Trump an overly-large mouth and to make him at one point push his tongue out in bizarre fashion. The colors of the video were also adjusted to make him look more orange.

"Hopefully, we can rise above partisan politics in order to support national security," the president said, pausing to lick his lips strangely.

The editor was fired following a quick investigation into the matter. Luckily a local radio station made a side-by-side so we can see the edits that were made.
