Editors’ Note: The editors have become aware of unusual aspects to the ‘Extract fecal DNA’ illustration in figure 1. We are investigating, and appropriate editorial action will be taken once the matter is resolved.
Not visible in the online figure; visible in the figure in the PDF which is still unaltered.

The culprit is probably the graphic designer.

IMHO with that, the Internet has reached Peak Shitpost.

Question now is if PETA will file a copyright claim on behalf of the baboon.

To be fair to Trump, he's only been at his latest gig for two years, whereas the previous accomplishments mentioned took him a bit longer than that. He's still got, what, six more years to try to live up to those standards, so perhaps there's still hope.

Posted on twitter, in response to James Comey on CNN:
https://twitter.com/PressSec/status/1074829578886103040
Republicans should stand up to Comey and his tremendous corruption - from the fake Hillary Clinton investigation, to lying and leaking, to FISA abuse, and a list too long to name. The President did the country a service by firing him and exposing him for the shameless fraud he is
— Sarah Sanders (@PressSec) December 18, 2018
The only reason I posted that is to set the context for some comments posted in response to that on another website, because I especially liked the one by "Blimple":

Comey Attacks Trump, Republicans. Sarah Sanders Shreds Him.

The next step is for a US Attorney to convene a Grand Jury to indict Comey etal for all of the crimes.

FrenchKiss • 5 hours ago
Yeah, but that will never happen. The whole fvcking system is corrupt.

Maybe we should all demand it, instead of cynically speaking it out of existence.

Blimple • 2 hours ago
What, like, demand it in real life as opposed to repeatedly calling for it in the comments? Can we do that?

The basic factory setting on the perception of Trump is: gigantic douchebag. This is a man who manufactured fake Time magazine covers featuring himself with the headline, "Donald Trump: The 'Apprentice' is a television smash!" so that he could put framed copies of it on the walls of his clubs.

His business is convincing people with lowbrow taste to give him their money.

He's a vulgar publicity hound who used to call reporters in a fake voice and pretend to be his own PR agent, "John Miller" or "John Barron," so he could brag that actresses wanted to date him.

On one "Apprentice" episode, the reward for the winning team was: to see Trump's apartment. Not to eat there or spend the night. They got to see it. "As a little treat," he said, "you're gonna see the nicest apartment in New York City." He added: "I show this apartment to very few people. Presidents, kings ..."

It's not as if a majority of his voters weren't clear-eyed about what kind of man he is. If anything, Trump's vulgar narcissism made his vow to build a wall more believable. Respectable politicians had made similar promises over the years -- and they always betrayed the voters. Maybe it took a sociopath to ignore elite opinion and keep his word.
