A television station in Seattle has fired an editor after the station aired video footage of Donald Trump’s Oval Office address on immigration that appeared to have been doctored, the AP reports.

“Fox affiliate Q13 broadcast video from the Tuesday night speech that showed a more orange-toned Trump with his tongue hanging out languidly from his mouth after making a statement,” the AP reports. “The video’s filtered colors look more saturated and the tongue appears doctored.”

A video posted by Mynorthwest.com, which you can see below, shows the apparent discrepancies between the original tape and the version aired by Q13.

The AP quotes Q13 news director Erica Hill saying: “This does not meet our editorial standards and we regret if it is seen as portraying the president in a negative light.”

Hill confirmed on Thursday that the station had investigated the incident and had fired the editor involved.
