Steve Scully, a long-tenured host on C-SPAN, is slated to moderate the next debate between Donald Trump and Joe Biden (which may not happen after the President's COVID diagnosis). Steve Scully was a former intern for . . . Joe Biden. That's suspicious, but . . . hey, maybe he's not a total dishonest political hack. It could be true?
Well his non-partisanship feels a little less certain today, after Scully's twitter account tweeted out the following question to Anthony Scaramuuci, President Trump's former press secretary-turned-hyperbolic critic:
It seems extremely likely that Steve Scully was attempting to send Anthony Scaramucci a "direct message" (a private message) that was intended for Scaramuuci's eyes only, but sent the private message as a tweet instead.
The tweet is now deleted, but remained online for several hours - leading many (myself included) to mercilessly mock him online:
Today, Scully denied that he sent the tweet and instead blamed. . . HACKERS for infiltrating his account and sending out a single tweet to . . . Anthony Scaramuuci, someone that goes on television and attacks President Trump.

It also turns out that this was NOT the first time that Scully has used the "I WAS HACKED" excuse on Twitter:
So based on Steve Scully's statements . . . this would've been the third time he's been hacked. What the hell is Scully's password, "Biden2020"?
Or maybe. . .
