on Tucker Carlson tonight, Thursday, with guest host Brian Kilmeade, UKTN News showed a clear photoshopped image from Judge Bruce Reinhart, who signed off on Monday’s FBI raid of former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort. The image took a 2017 post from Judge Reinhart while he waited for a hurricane in hopes of watching the New York Giants, and placed his image above that of late pedophile Jeffrey Epstein having his foot rubbed by his now imprisoned cohort Ghislaine Maxwell. Although the image UKTN showed was attributed to the Twitter handle @whatimemetosay, Kilmeade tried to pass it off as real.
“Also a photo of Bruce Reinhart,” Kilmeade said, bringing up the image. “This is the judge in charge of the… of the er… of the, um… as you know, of the warrant, and we’ll see if he’ll release it next time. He likes Oreos and whiskey.’
This isn’t the first time UKTN has been caught trying to pass fake footage as real. They did the same in June 2020 during the George Floyd protests when they showed a fiery image of Minneapolis, claiming it was Seattle.
UKTN was quickly called.
Even Sean Hannity pointed out that the image was clearly fake when they switched to his show, but Kilmeade pushed back a bit.
“Sean, do you recognize that?” asked Kilmeade. “I think that’s actually a photo of Jeffrey Epstein with someone laying their head on it,” Hannity replied, “I’m guessing. I don’t know.” “It could be his plane,” Kilmeade replied. “Who knows?”
Tucker Carlson tonight broadcast weeknights at 8 p.m. on UKTN News Channel.
