Nobody can resist a fart joke — not even the President of the United States.
President Trump caught wind of a five-year-old video of a Texas town council meeting that broke down in laughter when the mayor went to use the bathroom — and forgot to switch off his wireless microphone. The president shared the video with his 72.5M twitter followers.
The original clip went viral in 2015, racking up more than 5 million views. The two-minute snippet shows Georgetown, Texas, council member Rachael Jonrowe collapsing in helpless giggles at a May, 2015 meeting as she tries to give a sober report on infectious disease over a soundtrack of Mayor Dale Ross tinkling in the toilet.
But the clip that Trump retweeted without comment on Saturday was doctored with additional audio of a wind symphony and crowd reaction shots that were not in the original.
The retweet came from the account of a British Trump-hater named Paul Samuel — who promptly posted a string of tweets bashing the president.
