But, even more suspiciously, the version that was tweeted by the Tory Twitter account also has been "updated".
The clip is updated with "Election 2019: Labour manifesto launch" to make it seem like Phillips is discussing the party's official manifesto launch which she in fact was not. The new version has also been updated with new graphics that include topical sports news, reinforcing the perception that the interview has taken place this week.
Here's the original interview, which clearly shows that Phillips is discussing her book and abuse in politics.
And here's a screengrab of the new version, Tweeted out by @Conservatives. Spot the difference?
There was also this version, with an updated time stamp, which was posted by @CCHQPress, the same account that was also in trouble this week for rebranding as 'factcheckerUK', which is all kinds of ironic.
Then there's the framing of the discussion, which has been cut short to further remove the context.
Presenter Susanna Reid asked Phillips:
The electorate want you to keep to those promises, don’t they?
When Phillips said that her constituents rarely quote manifestos back to her, she was asked if voters should just ignore manifesto promises.
Phillips, who was on the show to talk about the death threats she receives, responded:
To be perfectly honest I think that there is an argument to be said that you can never ever deliver all of those things that you’re pretending that you can deliver when you go to the electorate. In reality, things change. Globally things change, situations change, facts change.
When asked why she was telling people not to trust manifestos, the Tory social media post cut the clip off a few seconds later.
But the video continued, with Phillips responding with a more detailed explanation behind her views and how she is in fact asking politicians to be more honest.
Situations genuinely change. I can’t control the trade war between America and China. I have to, each and every day as a politician, I have to look at the facts in front of me – and at the moment it is on a day to day basis, which is not good because we have future planning.
And I have to say: ‘what is the best decision I can make today, to make sure that my constituents are better off?’
And sometimes, I get it wrong. Sometimes I will stand on platforms and say things that I later find I can’t necessarily deliver and I wish more people were honest about it.
Later in the interview, Phillips clarified that she didn't say people "shouldn't trust" politicians or that politicians "don't believe" in their manifestos, but stands by the view that sometimes manifesto pledges are impossible to keep because bigger factors change.
On Twitter, people noticed the difference between the two clips. Lots of people accused the Tories of "doctoring" the footage.
