Parents of Toddlers in ‘Racist Baby’ Video Sue Trump Over Altered Clip [VIDEO]

hugging todlers - parents sue Trump-twitterThe parents of the two toddlers who went viral are suing President Trump after his campaign altered a video of the boys that he shared across social media. 

The video shows two best friend toddlers, one Black the other white, running down a sidewalk to hug – see clip above. 

Trump’s team doctored the video, showing the Black toddler running away from the white toddler. They gave it the title “Terrified toddler [sic] runs from racist baby.” The clip also included CNN’s logo on the bottom. 

Twitter removed the clip for violating platform policies. The parents of the toddlers filed a lawsuit with the New York Supreme Court, arguing that the actions of Trump, his campaign, and the guy who made the video, Logan Cook, were “extreme, shocking and outrageous” and “beyond the bounds of decency,” The Hill reports.

The lawsuit alleges that Cook “falsely, maliciously and without parental consent” altered the video to make it appear as if the Black toddler is running away from the white toddler.

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany attempted to explain the altered video during a June press conference. 

“Last night, the president tweeted out some fake videos, one of which was labeled ‘manipulated media’ by Twitter,” CNN’s Jim Acosta said, Complex reports.  “Why is the president sharing fake videos on Twitter about two toddlers who are obviously showing a lot of love for one another? It seems as though he is exploiting children to make some sort of point.”

“He was making a point about CNN specifically,” McEnany replied. “A point that CNN has regularly taken him out of context.”

Ven Johnson, who is representing the parents of one of the boys, told Newsweek, “It’s all about trying to raise money for his reelection campaign and increase his ‘brand’ at the expense of two little kids.”

“It was absolutely done to advocate for what I believe to be a racist, despicable message against two little babies,” Johnson added.

The video in question is still available on YouTube, watch it below.
