Fake viral video showing girl standing up to Trump fools thousands
A viral video that purportedly shows a young girl telling President Trump he’s a “disgrace” currently has hundreds of thousands of retweets on Twitter, but it’s not real.
A clip from the Comedy Central series “The President Show” was shared by hundreds of thousands of people on social media over the weekend. The clip shows Trump impersonator and show host Anthony Atamanuik from behind and is cropped to hide Comedy Central’s logo. The impersonation fooled thousands of Twitter users, who angrily responded to the fake Trump’s words.

In the video, Atamanuik tells a young girl at a Tax Day protest that she is a “disgrace,” only for the girl to respond “you’re a disgrace to the world.”
