Revealing Video of Donald and Melania Trump at Inauguration: Was It Reversed?
This video clip has been circulating on Twitter, showing a rather shocking moment between Donald Trump and his wife Melania, at his inauguration ceremony. Trump is turned to face her, and she’s beaming at him — but as he turns away to face front again, Melania’s face collapses into what can only be called a miserable frown as soon as he’s not looking at her.
Almost immediately, people started claiming this video was “reversed.” I don’t know where this claim originated, but I suspect it came from Trump followers.
However, there’s another clip available of this exact moment in Franklin Graham’s invocation; it’s from a different angle and doesn’t show Melania, but Trump’s movements match Graham’s words exactly the same as in the shorter clip above. Here it is, queued up to start at the same moment:
Notice: he begins turning around as Graham says, “God will bless…”
Conclusion: this clip was obviously not reversed. It’s legitimate. As for what it shows, you can draw your own conclusions.
