The hour is getting late in Washington, D.C. and it’s days before a national holiday, perhaps that is the reason senior White House counselor Kellyanne Conway accidentally retweeted a fake Mike Pence account taking a shot at CNN.
Mediaite stumbled upon the tweet Monday evening, citing the fake account bashing CNN’s Chris Cillizza, who wrote an op-ed about possible Supreme Court Justice nominee Amy Coney Barrett. The op-ed dealt primarily with Coney Barrett’s looks and Trump’s obsession with “image.”
Conway celebrated the fake-VP’s feminism, tweeting her own commentary, “.@VP calls out sexism and shows what it means to be pro-woman.”
As can be seen with the handle of the retweet, it says @MikePenceVP, not @VP, the official account for the vice-president of the United States.
The latter account has a biography which reads, “Fan account. My Goal is to expose liberal hypocrisy and Fake News Bias.”
