President Donald Trump is cheering C-SPAN's announcement that it has suspended Steve Scully after the longtime political editor and moderator of “Washington Journal” lied about a suspicious tweet – to a former Trump ally.

Scully "admitted to lying about his Twitter feed being hacked when he was confronted about a questionable exchange with former Trump aide Anthony Scaramucci," the Associated Press reports.

"The news came on the day of what was supposed to be a career highlight for the 30-year C-SPAN veteran. Scully was to moderate the second debate between President Donald Trump and Democrat Joe Biden."

That debate was canceled when Trump declared it would be a "waste of time" to debate virtually, after he tested positive for coronavirus.

Trump immediately cheered the announcement, falsely claiming the Debate Commission did not treat him "fairly."

Scully, in the now-deleted tweet, had said to Scaramucci, "should I respond to trump."

Trump had been attacking Scully:

"Scaramucci, a former Trump communications director and now a critic of the president, advised Scully to ignore him," the AP adds.

The MAGA crowd is celebrating:
