A respected scientific journal published a photo superimposing the fact of President Trump onto a clipart picture of monkey feces that was included in a study by researched from Penn State and the University of Washington. The journal’s editorial staff removed the image claiming to not have known the President’s face was there.
According to a report from The College Fix, the academic journal Scientific Reports, which focuses on research papers in the hard sciences, published a picture superimposing Donald Trump’s face on a clipart image of monkey poop.
The study, which is titled “Methylation-based enrichment facilitates low-cost, noninvasive genomic scale sequencing of populations from feces,” is a serious academic research paper by professors from the University of Washington and Penn State.
President Trump’s face appears superimposed on a tiny clip art image of monkey feces that is used to demonstrate the process of efficiently extracting feces from animal waste.
