While the political Left in America attempted to own the phrase “fake news” in their attacks against news sources such as Fox News, Breitbart.com, and the Drudge Report, it’s the same Lefties that are increasingly caught as the guilty party when it comes to pushing fake news.

Case in point would be the flurry of tweets shot out by Steve Clemons, described by The Washington Examiner as “a longtime left-wing think tank writer who now serves as the Washington editor at large of the Atlantic and National Journal.”

Specifically, Clemons claims that “two Secret Service managers were ‘abruptly forced to resign’ and were escorted out of the Eisenhower Executive Office Building [EEOB], the building adjacent to the White House.”

She referred all further questions to the White House press office, which did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Clemons is on a plane to Tokyo and could not be reached for comment.
