Liberal pundits and mainstream media gadflies Rick Wilson and Joe Scarborough tried to peddle a fake tweet from 2015 on Monday in order to score a point against President Donald Trump, unaware that they were spreading a falsehood.
Wilson initially tweeted an image of a supposed 2015 tweet in which Trump stated any President who was in office on the day the stock market declined more than 1,000 points should be placed into a cannon and fired. He smugly suggested that he agreed, under the impression that Trump had really tweeted such an idea in 2015.
The tweet coincidences with the large decline of stock market indexes as a result of the Chinese coronavirus. The markets suffered the single-day greatest drop since 2008 on Monday as a result of the virus.
