As Twitchy reported earlier, CNN analyst Asha Rangappa had racked up 22,000 likes (now over 30,000) for a completely false tweet claiming that 2020 presidential candidate Joe Biden wasn’t reading from a teleprompter Thursday when he gave his version of a presidential address on the coronavirus. Of course he was, because 1) he didn’t stumble all the way through and 2) photos clearly showed teleprompter screens in front of him.
Rangappa hasn’t deleted the tweet, but she did post a new one for all the angry “Trump Boo Boos” who are mad because President Trump can’t look like he’s making a natural delivery when reading from a teleprompter or something. No, all Trump can do well is go off-script at his massive rallies and improvise and play off the crowd without a teleprompter, all while remembering which state and city he’s in.
All the Trumpie Boo Boos are so mad that Biden didn't look like he was in a hostage video 😂
There might have been teleprompter there, but he looked like he was making a natural delivery to me, and not reading. Sorry your boy can't do that 🤷🏾♀️ https://t.co/IfQgSC585L

You lied in your tweet, you got called out and now you try to spin it.

Why not just own up to your incorrect assertion? It seriously undermines your credibility when you double-down and throw out a red herring.

No, we were calling you out on your bs.

“but he looked like he was making a natural delivery to me” we didn’t need confirmation that your powers of observation were inadequate. That’s been obvious for a while now.

Is there any news organization with a higher proportion of infantile Twitter trolls on its payroll than CNN?

It's not about Trump; it's about you doing basic homework to get facts correct. Trying to justify it after the fact with "I used confirmation bias instead of basic research, which is antithetical to being a journo" that's the problem here.

The threshold is now "looking like he was making a natural delivery". Just think about that.

It’s true — Biden fans are wiping the sweat off their brows after he managed to not embarrass himself.
Time to delete that original tweet, huh?
