Would Be Presidential Moderator Admits He Lied About Hack

Last week, Scully tweeted at anti-Trump commentator and former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci in what was likely supposed to be private direct message for advice on dealing with Trump during the debate.

Of course, Scully was also a former Biden intern.

He went with the Joy Reid defense, claiming he was hacked.

Yesterday, CSPAN announced that Scully admitted to them that he lied about the hack.

Of course, he blamed Trump & Trump supporters for the lie.

In a statement released by CSPAN, Scully says:

"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. This culminated on Thursday, October 8th when I heard President Trump go on national television twice and falsely attack me by name. Out of frustration, I sent a brief tweet addressed to Anthony Scaramucci. The next morning when I saw that this tweet had created a controversy, I falsely claimed that my Twitter account had been hacked."

You see it’s all Trump’s fault. Don't forget how the media all stuck up for Scully, claiming he was professional, trustworthy and unbiased.

CSPAN says the suspension is 30 days, but he’ll probably end up on MSNBC with lyin’ Brian Willians & Joy “I was hacked” Red.
