Democrats are so desperate for a big story to take down Trump that they’re willing to believe anything. Nancy Pelosi just got punked by a fake Twitter account pretending to by General Mike Flynn and she rushed out in front of cameras to talk about it before checking it out.
BAHAHA! Nancy Pelosi got punked by a Flynn parody account, and it’s on VIDEO [hint: SCAPEGOAT]
Oh Nancy Pelosi, you never fail to entertain us … LOL.
Seems she got confused by a parody account on Twitter and instead of doing her due diligence (that even us silly ol’ Twitchy editors do before writing something) she went on C-SPAN and blathered on about goats.
Here is Pelosi referencing the tweet from a parody account ( starts around 0:15 mark ). https://t.co/2AL5rcxGec

Watch the video keeping in mind that she is talking about a fake Twitter account, and that Flynn himself tweeted no such thing.

Gosh Nancy, thanks for explaining what a scapegoat is, especially using those nifty hand gestures. Otherwise we might never know what that meant.
If you’re curious, this is the actual tweet she is referring to (notice, no blue check mark which is USUALLY a dead giveaway for a parody at this level):
While I accept full responsibility for my actions, I feel it is unfair that I have been made the sole scapegoat for what happened. (1/2)

Maybe Pelosi’s staff could try looking into these things before she steps in front of a microphone.
There’s always next time.
