Liberals circulate fake photo of GOP Rep. Elise Stefanik giving the finger after Yovanovitch hearing

It seems that Rep. Elise Stefanik, R-NY, triggered leftists after Friday’s hearing with fired Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch.  As Twitchy reported, George Conway, husband of Kellyanne Conway, boasted about donating to her opponent and called her “trash.”  But that wasn’t enough.

Now, Twitchy tells us, leftists are circulating a doctored photo of Stefanik, showing her giving the finger as Yovanovitch received a standing ovation from Democrats.

Only one problem — the photo is an obvious forgery.  But it seems leftists simply don’t give a damn.

Stefanik, by the way, is the GOP House member who was silenced by Comrade Schiff during Yovanovitch’s hearing on Friday.

The tweet above was removed, but was captured for posterity.

It appears the photo was taken from CSPAN footage and altered, Twitchy said.

One person noted how easily the forgery was spotted:


Another person observed:

Another person posted the original photo:

Conway also shared the fake photo but apparently deleted the tweet:

“So,” Twitchy said, “they’re going after Stefanik because of her pout and because she gave Yovanovitch the finger (which she didn’t do). They’ve got as much on her as they do President Trump.”

What else can one expect?  Fake is what the left does best.
