Default New York Times, Nancy Pelosi cite fake General Flynn tweets

New York Times, Nancy Pelosi cite fake General Flynn tweets

The New York Times published a story on General Flynn’s resignation which included tweets sent from a parody account. In the tweets, someone pretending to be Flynn said he was a “scapegoat for what happened.” Later in the day, Rep. Elijah Cummings cited the same tweets during a press conference. At the same press conference, Rep. Nancy Pelosi, who said she hadn’t heard about the tweets previously, gave a description of a scapegoat to emphasize that other people at the White House should share the blame. Here are the tweets in question:


Michael Flynn‏ @GenMikeFlynn

But if a scapegoat is what's needed for this Administration to continue to take this great nation forward, I am proud to do my duty.

as much as the liberals hate Trump and so eager to find anything to complain about, it is probably going to be very easy to do this to them the next several years.

Do what? Who's looking? You can't help but turn around and Trumps disgrace is smacking you right in the face everywhere you go, you don't even have to look for it. Perhaps, you've just got blinders on. Maybe take off the Donald glasses for a moment and you will see for yourself. Even several Republicans on the hill are changing their tune on this guy. But, I suppose the liberals made Flynn screw up so badly huh. Might as well blame the other side, rather then owning up to the fact it was a crappy pick for NSA, who wasn't even properly vetted, along with many other cabinet choices.

Did she acknowledge her mistake or did she just call it "alternative facts"? That's the key question.

Selling out your country to the Russians?

No big deal.

Quoting the wrong tweet?

A huge deal.

Thanks for letting me know this fascinating story.

I see a thread were Liberals have their panties in a wad over Kellyanne Conway makeing a statement on Bowling Green that she didn't check her source.

Nancy and Kellyanne both apologized so are we going to agree both are non stories and move on, no harm no fowl.

The pain from being as dumb as you are, is it a sharp pain or a dull ache? And is it constant, or does it ebb and flow?

Your entire administration is built on lies and fake information...so now you're worried about a ****ing tweet?

Who gives a ****?

The worst White House scandal in history is happening right under your feet and tweeting is what's on your puny little mind.

Excuse me while I LMAO for the next hour. I warned repeatedly that this **** stain was a hoax. You ignorant asswipes couldn't wait to show us how great it would be to have a racist piece of scum like this in the WH. His entire administration is teetering on the brink of utter freefall and disgrace. The military leaders and the nation's intelligence community are telling us he's unfit.

Only a rank imbecile would give a **** about this silly non-story.

You fit the bill perfectly.

There has never been a scandal in US history like what's happening now. Nixon resigned after 3 1/2 years over something far less than what is happening now. This ****ing clown has lit his own hair on fire in 3 1/2 weeks.

I warned all of you. You wouldn't listen.

So you want the new standard to be for Presidents to resign every time unnamed former intelligence officials say something?
