There is nothing better than watching a leftist make a complete and utter fool of themselves. Case in point. Nancy Pelosi just could not wait to get in front of the cameras and bash Michael Flynn after he resigned. Poor Nancy absolutely beclowned herself by quoting ‘fake news’. That’s right… she fell for two tweets from a parody account and spoke for two hellishly long minutes on it. I think the Botox has gone straight to her brain.
Oh, and she wasn’t the only moonbat to do this. Elijah Cummings also quoted the same fake tweets, so they must have turned them into talking points. Bwa ha ha ha ha! Today literally became idiots on parade today as a number of Democrats ran with these fake tweets in their ecstasy over Flynn stepping down. Morons.
At a Tuesday press conference, Nancy Pelosi fell victim to fake news. As she tried to bash Flynn and President Trump, Pelosi referenced two tweets from a Twitter account attributed to @GenMikeFlynn. There’s only one problem. That account is a parody account and not associated with the real Mike Flynn.
Pelosi saw the tweets as an opportunity to really go on the attack against Flynn and Trump. She, of course, got up on her erroneous high horse thinking she had the perfect opportunity to use the “scapegoat” comment as a way to go after more of Trump’s administration as guilty of something. Pelosi, waving her hands for emphasis, launched into an explanation on what a scapegoat is, no doubt thinking it would make her point (her fake news point) more impactful.
“Do you know what a scapegoat is? It means in a community where people want to absolve themselves of guilt, they get a goat and they heap all of the ills onto the goat and then they run the goat out of town.”
“So the inference to be drawn from his statement is that other people have blame that should be shared in all of this.”
The New York Times mistakenly published these fake tweets in an article earlier today, before checking to see if they were real. I guess no one checks facts or sources anymore. Sometimes I feel like we are being led by Keystone Cops in the media and in politics. The parody account has now been suspended on Twitter. It must have ticked off too many liberals.
BuzzFeed reporter Ema O’Connor captured the moment an aide explained to Pelosi that the tweet was not actually from Flynn:

Now that’s golden! It’s enough to make her face crack and that folks takes some doing.
