OMG: Ted Lieu informed of facts surrounding NY Times’ Nikki Haley hit piece, DESPERATELY clings to narrative anyway

As we told you earlier, Rep. Ted Lieu joined many other media outlets by picking up a New York Times story with a wildly misleading headline and running with it:

Ok champ, YOU DO THAT! Rep. Ted Lieu wants Nikki Haley’s curtains investigated AAAND we’re officially DEAD https://t.co/NXUvHqnYBC

After Lieu’s tweet in which he called for an Oversight Committee hearing into the “spending on Nikki Haley and her deputy,” the Daily Caller made the California Dem aware of the facts surrounding the story:

Well @tedlieu, did you read the article? If you did you would have seen the fact that the 6th paragraph states:

“A spokesman for Ms. Haley said plans to buy the curtains were made in 2016, during the Obama administration. Ms. Haley had no say in the purchase, he said.”

Have you followed up on this claim or checked into it at all?

Did Lieu admit he jumped to conclusions in order to try and pin blame on the Trump administration for a spending decision that was made during the Obama administration? Heck no! How’s this for doubling down?

One way to follow up is to request a hearing. That’s what I’ve done.

There’s only one possible reaction to that:

HAAAAAAAAA. https://t.co/mrQKLN5RKO

And that’s the one! Cling to that narrative, congressman!

Maybe a remedial reading comprehension course would be in order, first.

Or you tweet an apology to @nikkihaley and send a tweet to @HillaryClinton and @BarackObama calling them out the same way

Why do democrats lack the ability to not beat dead horses?
