I'm going to need you to sit down for this one. In a SHOCKING twist to a story we reported on last week, Steve Scully, one of the hosts of the C-SPAN call-in show, Washington Journal, admitted today that his Twitter account had NOT, in fact, been hacked and he had been lying all long.
I know, it's a shocker - but it turns outs that when Steve Scully's Twitter account sent the following since-deleted-tweet, seeking counsel from Anthony Scaramucci (which was most likely intended to be a private message), it was actually Steve Scully that authored the tweet and NOT a nefarious hacker:
This news comes almost a week after Scully and his employer DENIED that Scully had sent the tweet and had published the following public statement, announcing that they would be investigating with the help of authorities:
Well, lo and behold, Steve Scully was lying to you and his employer. In a just released statement from the man himself, Steve Scully admits to "two errors" in judgment and basically blames conservatives for his malfeasance (naturally):
Did you catch that?: "Out of frustration, I sent a brief tweet addressed to Anthony Scaramuuci". There you have it, Steve Scully got himself into trouble because Donald Trump and conservative news outlets criticized him. Damn you, Conservatives!!!! Why did you do this to Steve Scully?!
Amazing how that works. Luckily for Steve he will have a while to reflect on how conservatives caused him to reach out to an enemy of the President, as C-Span has suspended him indefinitely.
Now on to some fun reactions:
A good reminder to everyone. . . if they say they were hacked, they were not hacked.
God Bless America.
