Liberal media pushes fake story that GOP celebrated Obamacare repeal with beer party

Liberal media hacks push fake news story that Republicans celebrated Obamacare repeal with beer party.

On Thursday, House Republicans voted to repeal Obamacare, causing the organized left to melt down in hysterics.  The same day, Vice News’ Alexandra Jaffe issued tweet that prompted the entire liberal hate machine to falsely claim that Republicans celebrated the repeal vote with a beer party.

She followed up with this:

Too late, the Daily Caller said, because the entire Democrat-media complex ran with the beer story, apparently too lazy to double-check the facts.

Here’s just a few of the headlines:

From Jezebel:

Salon beer fake news

Salon cited Rep. Rosa DeLauro:

But, Mashable reported:

An aide pushing a cart full of beer into the Capitol Thursday basically pinky-swore that the beverages had not been ordered to celebrate the House passing a bill designed to kill Obamacare.

Shortly before House Republicans celebrated a narrow vote approving President Trump’s promised health care repeal bill (which still has to pass the Senate), the Capitol worker denied that the big wagon of beer he was pushing through the building was headed toward a celebration party.

The internet wasn’t buying it, though, and couldn’t help but skewer the GOP for what appeared to be a pre-planned kegger to celebrate an unpopular and, at best, problematic bill.

House members of the GOP did end up at the White House for a celebratory press conference shortly after the bill’s passage, though they were not seen with empty cans of Bud. CBS News, however, also reported during the vote that beer was standing by for the celebration.

Naturally, the low-information left, driven by false reports from ThinkProgress, Salon and other outlets, bought the whole story, hook, line and sinker.  Facts be damned.

Even House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., fell for the hoax, the Washington Free Beacon said, adding:

Not long afterward, a spokesman for Speaker of the House Paul Ryan (R., Wis.) put a kibosh on the rumors, calling the allegation “completely and utterly false” on Twitter.

Too late…
