New Video of Lost Amazon Tribe Captures “F*** Trump”

(2018-08-24) — Video shot from a drone, showing a previously-unknown tribe isolated deep in the Amazon jungle, captured what appears to be a formation of stones in the dirt, spelling out in large letters “F*** Trump.” The tribe has had no known contact with the outside world, according to Funai, the Brazilian government agency that mounted the jungle expedition.

Linguists do yet know what the symbols signify, nor why asterisks were used to partially disguise the message, which appears in a jungle clearing in letters large enough to be seen from the International Space Station.

The video also shows dugout canoes made of tree trunks, a thatched hut, and nearly-naked tribesmen wielding primitive hand-made spears and bows. Experts said the civilization apparently survives with tools made from sticks and stones tied together.

“It’s startling to discover that this prehistoric tribe has some form of written language,” said a Funai spokesman. “Even more fascinating is their apparent expectation that someone might read their message, or care.”

Leaders of the expedition dubbed the tribesmen “Proto-Tweeter,” then departed the region, leaving them undisturbed.
