As Twitchy just reported, Brian J. O’Malley posted a faked photo of Rep. Elise Stefanik allegedly giving the finger as former ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch was receiving a standing ovation from Democrats for her testimony. It didn’t take long for Resistance members like George Conway to retweet it (and then delete it), but how did they all fall for such an obvious fake so easily?

O’Malley apologized for posting the pic and he took it down, but he persisted beforehand:

Dude, Carpe Donktum or Matt’s Idea Shop could have whipped that up in 10 minutes.

How can you “defame” someone who took credit for making the Photoshop and posted it to his timeline?

Look, at least the guy apologized, but so much for his “trusted source.” This whole thing is a clown show on top of another clown show.
