As we told you earlier today, the Washington Post was spotted taking a “conservatives pounce” approach after it was noticed that Rep. Ocasio-Cortez’s boyfriend has a .gov email account:
After it was noticed that Rep. Ocasio-Cortez’s boyfriend has a .gov email, WaPo got VERY curious (about conservatives) https://t.co/rn3Kukk2lu

Conservatives can’t stop obsessing over Ocasio-Cortez. Their latest target: her boyfriend. https://t.co/6I6pScdL9f

Running parallel to that is WaPo reporter Jeff Stein, who has concerns of his own yesterday that have carried over into this weekend. However, Stein’s concerns still revolve around National Review contributor and podcast co-host Luke Thompson who first made the observation:
Update: We have now reviewed 2 House GOP members whose spouses are in exact same database as the one on the right
As I’ve said theres no proof that AOC’s bf was hired as staff. If they are completely lying we will know it when quarterly congressional office info is released https://t.co/8yRyFOAiHQ

Amazing that @ltthompso still hasn’t deleted this as he did with his other tweet. I found two House Republicans whose spouses are registered on the exact same database, and it’s not a sign of employment by that office https://t.co/JuTOpcMAjZ

First of all…
What tweet did he delete?
Have you found any boyfriends/girlfriends in the database?

According to Thompson he hasn’t deleted any tweets:
I didn’t delete any of my tweets you lackluster stenographer.

Also Stein’s tweet makes “spouse” synonymous with “boyfriend,” and, though we’re not exactly sure what the House rules are, those two words definitely aren’t the same:
Perhaps looking up the definition of the word "spouse" and comparing it to "boyfriend" would help you realize how dumb this is. Then again, if you don't know the difference already… https://t.co/S5UB8EDSyV

Amazing that a Washington Post reporter doesn’t understand that a boyfriend is not a spouse…

Spouse? And you seriously think that's comparable to a boyfriend?

Key word: spouses

Leave it to the MSM to sound more like spokespeople for Democrats than journalists.
