Epic #fail: Lanny Davis bungles Direct Messages to Morgan Fairchild; Update: Tweets deleted




Political pundit/spinmeister Lanny Davis tried to send some private Direct Messages to actress Morgan Fairchild last night, but he ended up tweeting to the world instead.

Looks like he’s been working on figuring out how to privately communicate with Fairchild for a few days now:


For her part, Fairchild valiantly tried to get Davis up to speed on the intricacies of DM’ing:

Alas, it was to no avail.

This was one of the more notable mistweet episodes in recent memory. Naturally Twitter took the opportunity to poke some fun:



Davis quietly deleted the Direct Message misfires after Twitchy captured them this morning.

    I don’t know…
    I enjoy laughing at Progressives’ missteps, but poking fun at the mentally handicapped seems wrong somehow…

    How do I post here for just @michellemalkin? This is confusing. There is no DM button. Dunno.

    I wish Morgan Fairchild would DM me…

  • Chris Skates

    Fairchild is too hot for Davis by an order of magnitude or two. Is she a lib too? If so CRAP!

    • heatpacker

      Morgan Fairchild has been romantically linked to two Democrat Senators: Alan Cranston and John Kerry. So she’s a political groupie with a taste for metrosexuals.

    “A Weiner in the making”………… ROFLMAO!

  • teapartydoc

    Messages actually intended for @MorganFreeman

    • Grumpa Grumpus

      Oh! So he’s actually trying to start a romance w/morgan freeman?

      Given the people involved, that actually makes sense…

      …much more than Morgan Fairchild, anyway.

  • ChristopherConservative

    Why do people care? A lib pol going for a lib Hollyweirdo?

  • thomaspriebe

    Lanny Davis has now admitted to being confused … he meant to DM Morgan Freeman … not Morgan Fairchild.

    Run, Morgan, Run!

    • BrimmingUSpride

      In her case, shouldn’t that be, “Run, Forrest, Run!” Sorry, couldn’t resist:)

  • R. Sanders

    Why doesn’t he just text message or use a damn phone? lol

  • rocker686

    Very funny. But really, using Twitter to pick up Morgan Fairchild?

  • BubbasBBQ

    Geeze Louise, why doesn’t this Gavon just use semaphore and be done with it

  • Ronette

    I like William Wolfrum the very best! Democratic Strategizzle!!!!!!!!!! Ha ha! Hey Lanny, no wonder you defended Slick Wilie so, shall we say, vigorously. The apple does not fall too far from the apple tree of epic sleeze.

  • Liz Cummings Litterello

    Lanny Davis….how perfectly pathetic….

    I kinda like Lanny Davis, I just wish he wouldn’t shill for Obama and would ADMIT that Obama is NOT what he was advertised as and is NOT what Lanny himself would support if he wasn’t acting as a partisan mouthpiece. He’s better than that – and Morgan might find him to be good company. Too much dang stuff is online these days. Funny, though.

    • palintologist

      Nah, you don’t have to feel bad. He kept pontificating to Cavuto today how proud he was of Obama finally getting national healthcare in place because it is a MORAL issue. Yeah, Lanny, in tight with the Clintoons and DemonRat party is the ultimate arbiter of morality.

    The uneducated, credentialed elite fails again to complete a simple task mastered by millions of common people.

  • ICLemmings

    Morgan Fairchild = Older then dirt

  • BorderLine Guy

    What a goof. He should leave twitter. His tweets are embarrassing fan boy celeb kneepadding.
