Trump Edits Out A Fox News Anchor’s Comments To Try To Discredit The Democrats’ Memo

Donald Trump spent his evening losing his sh-t on Twitter, this time over the Democrat’s rebuttal to the GOP memo, the latter of which was widely derided. Trump took to his Twitter account to edit a few words out from a quote by one of the Fox News’ anchors in order to paint Rep. Adam Schiff as “a total phony.” Trump falsely claimed that the network’s anchor said: “Congressman Schiff omitted and distorted key facts” when, in fact, that did not happen.

“‘Congressman Schiff omitted and distorted key facts’ @FoxNews So, what else is new. He is a total phony!” President Liar Pants tweeted.

CNN reporter Brian Stelter quickly picked up the actual quote.

“Holy moly,” Stelter tweeted. “The @FoxNews anchor said “Congressman Schiff, he ARGUES the REPUBLICAN memo omitted and distorted key facts.” Trump just deleted 5 words from the quote to allege the opposite meaning.”

The full quote from the Fox News anchor does not say what Trump thinks it says.

“Congressman Adam Schiff, he argued the Republican memo omitted and distorted key facts meant to mislead the public. This democratic memo was meant to be the rebuttal and was meant to show what was left out,” Fox anchor Molly Line said explaining the memo.

Trump unleashed a tweetstorm tonight over the Democrat’s memo, which he blocked two weeks earlier. Trump claimed earlier this month that the memo spearheaded by House Intelligence Committee Chairman Devin Nunes (R-CA) totally ‘vindicates’ him even though it did not.
