Oops: Pelosi, Cummings Cite Fake Tweet to Attack Flynn

11

Top Democratic leaders on Tuesday unwittingly used a fake tweet to attack former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, the Daily Beast reports. House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Rep. Elijah Cummings cited an unapologetic tweet from an account pretending to be Flynn.

“Just this morning, Flynn tweeted, and this is a quote: ‘Scapegoat.’ End of quote. Scapegoat. He basically describes himself as a scapegoat,” Cummings said. Other reporters pointed out that Pelosi also went after Flynn for the “scapegoat” tweet.

Flynn resigned on Monday night amid questions over his contact with Russian government officials and allegations that he misled Vice President Mike Pence about what was discussed during those conversations. Parody Twitter accounts have been among the many ways in which so-called “fake news” has duped otherwise-reputable sources like major news outlets and lawmakers of all stripes.

  1. Pelosi and Cummings are two of the dummest people on the face of the earth. It’s idiots like them that we MUST Institute mandatory term limits on all branches of government.

  2. Why are people focusing on this and not on Flynn’s seeming lies and definite lack of trust? Now there seems to be reason to think he lied to the FBI and might be subject to felony charges. That’s a lot more important than dems’ reactions.

  3. The sad part isn’t that these two were misled by the fake news. The problem with them is that they are unable to distinguish between the fake and the real, due to their innate lack of intelligence, compounded by senility.
    They aren’t even smart enough to realize that they should retire, before they are back in diapers.

  4. Well people keep on voting for them and there will be no democratic party but just a joke. You know there is a easy way for term limits it is called NOT VOTING FOR THEM.
