As you might have guessed, one of the leaders of the Hollywood chapter of the anti-Trump Resistance, Rob Reiner, took special interest in a recent claim from MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell:


O’Donnell still hasn’t deleted that tweet, perhaps because he would hate to give all those tens of thousands of retweets. Reiner also used O’Donnell’s story to further fuel his TDS:

Reiner also obviously thought this old tweet from Trump was such a “gotcha” that he retweeted it:


But as it turns out, there was a big problem with the story Reiner so badly wanted to be true:

For some reason Reiner didn’t retweet that follow-up.

There’s a lot of that going around lately.

It might not even make any difference just because he wants it to be true, so in Reiner’s world, it still is.
