In another rash of Republican’s using fake social media accounts, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and her colleague Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-MD) were duped by a Twitter account pretending to be resigned White House national security adviser Gen. Michael Flynn.
The Washington Free Beacon reported that soon after her press conference, one of Pelosi’s aides reportedly told her the tweet was fake, to which she reacted in disbelief: “What do you mean it’s fake?”
