J.D. Vance Slams DeSantis Campaign: ‘Totally Uncool’ To Taint Trump’s Image with Fake AI Pics!

Senator J.D. Vance Strikes Back

Guess who’s speaking up for former Prez Trump? It’s Ohio Senator J.D. Vance, the straight-shooting Republican who’s made it clear that he’s not cool with the DeSantis campaign circulating a video that rips into Trump’s relationship with Dr. Anthony Fauci.

And what’s got him really heated up? Those are not even real pics! The clip features AI-generated images showing Trump and Fauci in a fond embrace. Vance exploded, “Smearing Donald Trump with fake AI images is completely unacceptable!”

Controversial Video Stirring Up Twitter Drama

This hot potato of a video first surfaced on Twitter from DeSantis War Room, the campaign machinery for Florida Governor Ron DeSantis.

The caption takes a potshot at Trump’s penchant for firing people on TV but never giving Fauci the boot. And amidst the visuals are these three AI-generated shots that show Trump almost affectionately hugging Fauci. One even features Trump planting a smooch on Fauci’s cheek!

AI, Real or Not?

How do we know these pics are fake? AFP was the first to sniff out the forgery. Hany Farid, the go-to expert for digital forensics at UC Berkeley, confirms that these images are “almost certainly AI-generated.” So, folks, just because it’s on the internet doesn’t make it real!

Christina Pushaw, DeSantis’s Rapid Response Director, doesn’t seem to be losing sleep over the controversy. Her comeback was a cheeky share of another obviously fake AI image, this time featuring DeSantis riding a rhino! Is that a sassy “Who cares?” to the critics?

Podcaster Joins the Outcry

And who else is joining this bandwagon? Podcaster Tim Pool! He’s gone public with his disappointment over DeSantis’s campaign strategy. For Pool, it’s a solid no-go for DeSantis. He minced no words: “Using AI images to smear Trump is a hard f* you. DeSantis must disavow.”
