As Twitchy told you yesterday, Democratic Rep. Ilhan Omar came unglued and incoherently berated Elliott Abrams, demanding answers to questions and then cutting him off before he could answer.
Here’s how Newsweek covered it:
— Newsweek (@Newsweek) February 14, 2019
Abrams didn’t “refuse to answer.” He tried to respond to Omar’s aggressively bizarre and nasty line of questioning and she interrupted him. Repeatedly. He was visibly frustrated with Omar’s despicable and unprofessional behavior, and for that, Newsweek is making him the bad guy.
We’d say it’s unbelievable, but it’s Newsweek. So shameless spin and lies are to be expected.
This is a lie.

Unreal Newsweek. We all saw the video. Sheesh

He said no.
Another case of media flat-out lying when video shows otherwise.

That's a lie Newsweek. I saw the video.
My Dad used to order NW. I grew up on it. How far you've fallen.

They can always fall a little farther, it seems.
Literally untrue. Not surprising, though, coming from your "publication."
