Our on-going alerts, DEMS! (Distinctly Embarrassing Moments for Seattle!), highlight the many ways one-party Democrat rule in Seattle has hurt the reputation of the city and our state. Read on!
Even Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling has been conned by the Democrats’ recent fake news scam.
Last Friday, a staffer for Seattle’s very own U.S. Rep. Pramila Jayapal, tweeted a deceptively edited video showing President Trump ignoring a child in a wheelchair. Rowling retweeted the video and launched a diatribe against the President. Her tweet was seen by millions and retweeted over 48,000 times on Friday.
The real video, shows the President, in fact, warmly greeting the child, totally contradicting Jayapal’s staffer’s tweet. When he was asked to apologize for posting a faked video, all he had to say was this:
@Ansel had to delete the fake tweet and also the follow-up tweet in which he encouraged viewers “disgusted” by the video to follow Rep. Jayapal on Twitter because she is known as the “anti-Trump.”
Rep. Jayapal’s short tenure in Congress has been marked by embarrassing moments (see DEMS 1/9/17) But posting anti-Trump fake news on social media is a new low. And, it’s especially embarrassing for Democrats in Seattle who support her.
