Moments ago, President Trump reacted to the news that Steve Scully of C-SPAN admitted he lied about being hacked on Twitter.
Scully had been set to moderate the now cancelled 2nd Presidential debate between Trump and Biden.
Trump tweeted “I was right again! Steve Scully just admitted he was lying about his Twitter being hacked. The Debate was Rigged! He was suspended from @cspan indefinitely. The Trump Campaign was not treated fairly by the “Commission”. Did I show good instincts in being the first to know?”
October 9th, days before Scully admitted to lying, Trump tweeted “[email protected], the Never Trumper next debate moderator, got caught cold. Pulled out the old, “I’ve been hacked”, line. That never works. His bosses are furious at him as he’s lost all credibility!”
Scully has now been indefinitely suspended by C-SPAN after his embarrassing admission.
Scully issued the following statement:
“For several weeks, I was subjected to relentless criticism on social media and in conservative news outlets regarding my role as moderator for the second presidential debate, including attacks aimed directly at my family
Out of frustration, I sent a brief tweet addressed to Anthony Scaramucci. The next morning when I saw that this tweet had created a new controversy, I falsely claimed my Twitter account had been hacked. These were both errors in judgment for which I am totally responsible for. I apologize.”
Anthony Scaramucci tweeted “I get that he got suspended for the lie but the punishing cancel culture is over the top.”
I get that he got suspended for the lie but the punishing cancel culture is over the top.
