Fox News keeps getting fooled by fake Brett Kavanaugh Twitter accounts

Published

Judge Brett M. Kavanaugh

The social media staffer at Fox News seems to be having a hard time telling the difference between a real Brett Kavanaugh Twitter account and fake ones.

It all began Monday night when @FoxNewsOpinion retweeted a few tweets from an account claiming to belong to President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Law & Crime found. The account has since been suspended, but not before Fox fumbled.

Prior to it being deleted Law & Crime explained that the account only began tweeting as of 9 p.m. when Trump was announcing the nominee.

“I am grateful to President Trump and I am humbled by his confidence in me. Thank you President. No president has ever consulted more widely or talked with more people from more backgrounds to seek input about a Supreme Court nomination. #SCOTUS” the account tweeted.

It was obvious that no one double-checked to ensure the account was authentic, though the only previous tweets were bizarre replies like the one below:

The other tweets that were retweeted by Fox seemed to be nothing more than recycled versions of Kavanaugh’s statement he read from the White House podium.

“The tweets have since been deleted on our FOX News Opinion Twitter account and we regret the error,” Fox said in a statement.

LISTEN: Charlamagne Tha God clashes with ‘delusional’ Rush Limbaugh in debate over George Floyd’s killing and white privilege

Published

on

During an interview with Rush Limbaugh this Monday, Charlamagne Tha God called out the conservative radio host for his white privilege and asked him why he's choosing to speak out on George Floyd's killing while there have been countless examples of police violence against black people.

“I know that you’re going to disagree with me on this — to me this is not America,” Limbaugh said, adding that he thinks the U.S. is the greatest country in the world.

But according to Charlamagne, America is only great for some people.
