‘So trolled!’ Pelosi gives condescending lecture on Flynn while citing a FAKE parody account

Two senior Democrats attacking former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn became victims of a fake parody account on Twitter.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Rep. Elijah Cummings referenced tweets from a “fake” Flynn account announcing he was made the scapegoat in the controversy over what he discussed with the Russian ambassador.

“Scapegoat. Do you know what a scapegoat is?” Pelosi asks before launching into the definition for the great unwashed to understand.

Turns out, she’s the one who should have done her homework.

“It’s not scapegoat, it’s stonewalling,” Pelosi said, referring to the tweets from an unverified account on Tuesday.

“The inference to be drawn from [Flynn’s] statement is that other people have blame that should be shared,” Pelosi said, adding a mini-lesson in what a scapegoat actually is, complete with hand gestures.

The tweet Pelosi claimed she heard about from Cummings, Maryland Democrat and ranking member of the House Government and Oversight Committee, was from a Twitter account bearing no blue checkmark. Flynn’s real account, @GenFlynn, was deleted last month.

The New York Times and Newsmax Media also apparently quoted from the fake account, with the Times later issuing a correction, The Hill reported.

“Because of an editing error, an earlier version quoted three posts from an unverified Twitter account,” the Times wrote.

The House Oversight Democrats’ Twitter account also noted the error that had been made.

The account in the center of it all followed up with a tweet later Tuesday.

Pelosi’s dramatic rendering of the information was the source of endless entertainment and countless Twitter face palms.
