Photos of Trump being arrested created by Eliot Higgins are really making the rounds on social media.
According to The Washington Post, Higgins, founder of the investigative journalism group Bellingcat asked AI art generator Midjourney to make a photo of
Donald Trump falling down while being arrested.
I was just mucking about… I thought maybe five people would retweet it.”
Meanwhile it’s been viewed millions of times and been countlessly retweeted and shared.
Bellingcat (ironically?) uses social media posts and other digital data to prove facts, uncovering crimes and investigating atrocities. CNN worked with Bellingcat to uncover the Russian operatives who apparently tried to poison the now-jailed dissident leader Alexey Navalny.
The fake photos, might make you do a double take (they’re clearly not real) but they sure are satisfying!
