Oh, snap! Donald Trump tweets congrats for Manti Te’o story; Deadspin to Trump: ‘Go f*ck yourself’

Oh, snap!

As Twitchy reported last night, Deadspin discovered that Manti Te’o’s girlfriend, who had allegedly died, did not exist at all.  ESPN reportedly sat on the story, even though multiple Twitter accounts indicated it was all a hoax back in December. Donald Trump weighed in today, tweeting congratulations to Deadspin for its scoop. Deadspin’s reaction? “Go f*ck yourself.”

Sporty thingies are hard!

Just in case the tweet is deleted (doubtful, because it seems to be a strongly held belief, heh), Twitter users are at the ready.

Trump, undeterred, continues rambling about Manti Te’o.

(He seems to have tweeted those in reverse order.)

Is there another GFY tweet aimed at Trump coming soon? Stay tuned.


Notre Dame’s Manti Te’o takes composite girlfriend concept to new level with tragic lost love who didn’t exist; University (today) says he was duped; Te’o calls it ‘sick joke’

Multiple Twitter accounts exposed Manti Te’o fake girlfriend hoax in early December

    Obama’s “composite girlfriend”, featured in one of his autobiographies didn’t make these kinds of headlines. (who writes an autobiography before doing anything of value…)

    Come to think of it, Obama doesn’t have any ex-girlfriends……hmmmmmm……

      Sigh, and here we go with the ODS again, every story, some how SOME WAY connects to Obama for righties. LIFE just called for you guys, she wants you to join her at some point.

      • NCRelite

        yup, the Left never brings up Bush, Palin, or Dick Cheney. /sarcasm

        Yeah, it’s hard for lefties to think of 2 different things at once or connect the dots re: obvious hypocrisy by the MSM.

    • Agent_Zeero

      Nevermind that; in the past 48 hours more investigative journalism has been done on the Manti Te’o “hoax”, than was EVER done on Benghazi. Or Obama’s background

      • John Pezzullo

        Benghazi……..lol give it a rest already. How about investigative journalism on good ole W’s wars of aggression and how he and his administration in any other country would be viewed as war criminals.

    • grais

      I thought Obama’s girlfriend was “compressed,” the poor thing/s.

      Be fair. He actually did NOT write it – Bill Ayers did – and may not have read it yet.

  • aegean1

    Um, why are we happy @Deadspin is tweeting like @JasonBiggs? I must have missed something here..

    Here’s a question to ponder at leisure. Would the world be a better place if guys were capable of doing what Deadspin suggested Donald Trump do?

    Not a fan of Trump, but that was a pretty tasteless and classless response from deadspin. Embarrassing, for them. I’m inclined to not support or respect their publication because of this. I mean, who does that? Aside from the left, I mean. That’s a child’s response.
