RE: Think Trump is Scary? This is Scarier.
We could use it in translating of what politicians say to what they actually mean. Such editing would be hilarious - imagine some clown speaking that all he want is good of his loyal voters and some good soul putting effort in translating such drivel with probable result being "all I wan are your votes".

The first revolt is against the supreme tyranny of theology, of the phantom of God. As long as we have a master in heaven, we will be slaves on earth.

It'd be an improvement on the current situation...

At least a fair number of Americans actually LIKE Coke.....

Warning volatile political comment below....

I kinda prefer diet pepsi to diet coke...... (and I"m diabetic so the diet part is chosen for me by default)

Coke to me has a funny aftertaste

We must be very careful with this.

Really ? I think not. After D. T. Rump and Co., we'll all be even more accustomed than before, to politicians who just tell outright bald-face lies.

It's becoming a possibility...

Donald Trump proved that literally anyone can become president.

Even my cat? My cat would be a great president. She would be the first president to achieve world peace with her super fluffy fur that somehow doesn't aggravate people's allergies. She'd be objectively better than the tangerine wearing a wig we currently have.

It would only be scary if we suddenly saw video of tRump making sense.

Everything the shitgoblin says now has to be vetted. How would this change anything with him?

Now I'm scared. The makers are proud of their achievement, but I can't think of a single legitimate use for something like this, so why did they make it? Perhaps in a venue of unambiguous entertainment, like Sat Night Live, this could work - but even in that venue the satire derives its power from the fact that it's actors, not the real personality.

Well, it's a finished product now. Good luck world. This is Goebbels resurrected to the 100th power.

Why do we put so much effort into making propaganda ever more effective, and almost no effort at all into learning to recognize it and to resist it?

"New Video Editing Tool Would Make it Possible to Put Words in Politicians’ Mouths"

Actually, I think their party handlers have been doing that for a long, long time.

Of course they have. Look at Dumpy's verbiage to coal miners. Coal is not economically viable. Yet they bought the verbiage. It was nothing but campaign lies, just like the wall, just like China currency manipulation, just like Obama Care. They bought the lines. Hook. Line. And sinker. What has he done ? Nothing.
