President Trump Speaks In Front of Presidential Seal Reading "45 Is A Puppet"

Trump was speaking to a large crowd of young Republicans at their conference in Washington D.C. on Tuesday, and it turns out he was standing in front of a mocked Presidential Seal.
The photoshopped seal featured an eagle carrying golf clubs, and above the eagles head where it's supposed to read "E Pluribus Unum,” it actually read "45 es un titere". After a quick google search you find out quickly that actually reads "45 is a puppet".

As for who did it, this is what gizmodo.com found:
"It’s unclear who first created the photoshopped image, but it appears on free image sites like Free PNG Library and other Clip Art hosting pages. Someone is even selling the doctored logo on t-shirts and iPhone cases at the print-on-demand service Inktale. The user who sells those items, OneTermDonnie, also sells bumper stickers that read “Chump” made to look like the Trump logo."
“It was a last-minute A/V mistake—and I can’t figure out where the breakdown was,” an unnamed spokesperson for Turning Point USA told the Washington Post. “But it was a last minute throw-up, and that’s all it was.”
Either this was a brilliantly pulled off prank by the likes of Stephen Colbert and Seth Meyers, or a young pimple-faced intern with ambition to be the next president is getting fired.
