Trump defenders and supporters have taken to peddling a supposed screenshot from what looks like a Facebook post from Myeshia Johnson, the widow that Trump allegedly insulted in a phone call about her deceased husband.
Here’s the offending image:
Sad to say but evidently this post is a fake and was not posted by Myeshia Johnson. We need to stop posting and let this widow grieve in peace 😞 pic.twitter.com/9wzvMNvSuI— Liz 🦋🌸🦋 (@busylizzie48) October 21, 2017
Now there’s no proof at all that she posted this. And if she did, why would she delete it?
In any case, we live in the age where it’s much easier to click “retweet” than it is to look stuff up and check their validity.
The fact of the matter is that we don’t know what Myeshia Johnson thought about the phone call from Trump, and we probably won’t know for a while…
