It could be the camera angle, but there actually seems to be a discontinuity in the video where the size of the cutout actually changes. I`ve seen valid perception illusions, but this is not one.

Not really shenanigans at all... the size discrepancy you are measuring is likely due to unintended lens distortion and perhaps a slight camera angle when he filmed it. However, it doesn`t have much bearing on the illusion he was trying to portray. The effect can easily be reproduced in photoshop by taking a screen capture of the video, duplicating just one of the abes, rotate it and then draw your own lines in.

He was a politician. They are experts at deception.

Could that be atributed to camera angle? Might they look the same if viewed from directly above?

I also measured and biom is correct. They are not the same height

I`ve never posted before, but could not tolerate these shenanigans. Measure the line in the video and you will notice that Lincoln on the left is taller by a few mm.
